We previously discussed about what advantages and disadvantages of rooting were.
If you are still on Froyo, it is strongly recommended that you update to Gingerbread.
You can check your firmware going to Settings> About phone> Firmware version.
Warranty will get void after rooting . If you want to get warranty back, you simply have to unroot it.
If you are on Froyo-
- Download SuperOneClick 1.9.5 from here and extract it anywhere on your PC.
- On your phone, make sure USB debugging is enabled in Settings > Applications > Development > USB Debugging.
- Now connect your phone to the computer and run SuperOneClick.exe and hit the Root button.
If you are on Gingerbread-
- Download upd_1.zip from here and copy it to the root of your SD card.
- Reboot into recovery by holding the Home and Power button, letting go of the power button once you see the Samsung logo.
- Navigate to update from sdcard (with the help volume buttons) and then select upd_.1zip.
- Once the file is flashed (takes around 2 seconds), reboot the device from the recovery menu.
Those who are getting errors and cant root their phone , Download this file “AceGingerRoot.zip” and use it instead of “upd_1.zip”
Congratulations you have successfully rooted your phone.
