  25. Fox says:

    I followed all the steps exactly but the rooting took exactly 5 seconds! And it didn’t auto re-boot, I had to manually click on the reboot now on the menu. I downlded the root check basic software from GPlay and it DOES show that my device is rooted. (I had wiped and erased all data and cache partition while following another tutorial elsewhere which didn’t work). Is it possible that it’s not rooted properly or is it that rooting was fast cos I erased all data? (Even so, it should have automatically rebooted right?) Please advise. TY!

    I had a probelm with the installer as my localized phone model was s5360L i took a shot modifyng the following file:

    META-INF/com/google/android/updater-script

    adding this lines:

    getprop(“ro.product.device”) == “GT-S5360″ ||
    getprop(“ro.product.product”) == “GT-S5360″||
    getprop(“ro.product.device”) == “GT-S5360L” ||
    getprop(“ro.product.product”) == “GT-S5360L”||
    ….

    After that all went smoothly.

    Hope this helps someone :) great guide btw!

    • Great! Thanks for sharing

    • JP says:

      I also have the s5360L, and just added the missing “L” to the existing line and worked fine. Thx!!!

    • There will be no folder with name “Root” in your memory card. Root folder is nothing but your memory card starting step. For example you memory card name is GeekDashboard, whenever you open geekdashboard it is you will enter to root folder And remaining folders like Music,Images are in Root folder

  169. Aivar says:

    Hi Amar,
    For Me, it took just one minute only how can i confirm it updated.
    Thanks,

    • If your are able to see Super user app on your mobile, you’re awesome and you’re done

      • James says:

        I can see it thanks!, also it took like 5 second to root :)

  170. vincz says:

    Hi i just want to ask if i rooted my galaxy y. The ROM and internal memory will expand? And what if i crush my phone. can i use it again thanks

    • Internal memory may not increase more. but you can save your ROM. Rooting with update.zip is such easy and no need to worry about you mobile. even if it fails (because of your back luck :P ) mobile can undo those changes. Your mobile will reboot manually it even it fails
      Cool! and which you the luck

      we are looking for your success replay here ;)

  171. atari says:

    is it the same as reformatting your device? because you mentioned that the files will get removed.. tnx

    • Hai Atari,
      Yes, it almost like formatting your device. Each and every file stored in your phone memory will be erased. So, make a complete backup before rooting

  172. Moin says:

    Will I get any problem in ma phone by downloading through mobile Internet??

    • Hello Moni,

      Downloading from Mobile Internet and from broadband connection is same. The only matter is download speed. That’s it. No problem you can download the update.zip file using your mobile internet

  173. Swanand says:

    hw to increase internal memory and proccers speed

    • You can’t do it. Use external storage in stood of internal memory

  174. Moin says:

    Can we download the update zip through mobile
    e Internet? Thanks

  175. sanath says:

    can u be mor clear?? what no need!??,

    • You made the rooting process successively. When automatic reboot doesn’t takes place, i suggested to reboot manually. you have done it. more over if you got superuser app in your mobile, it says rooting process is made correctly

  176. sanath says:

    i have follwd all above step an installation took hell lotz of tym…it took ovr 1 hr an dint reboot by itself so i manually reboot it…bt i got superuser app on my menu!! hav i got rooted proprly??

  177. Keiji says:

    will this process work for version 2.3.6?

  178. G-man says:

    THANK YOU !!! If it is all working i see superuser add is on it. I tried all day to load roots and they all failed yours worked so thank you, shame i wasted my time with other guides.

    Other guides dont say that you dont need to unzip which might have been my mistake so thanks, just to add I had to click reboot after clicking sd card – install update and it didnt take 10 minutes.

  179. karl says:

    do i need to extract the zip file first?

  180. Keji says:

    Yes the phone didnt reboot by itself so i did.How can i know if my phone is rooted or no?

    • If your mobile is rebooted, you can see the samsung logo on your screen
