How to Root Galaxy Apollo GT-I5801

A smartphone such as your Galaxy Apollo GT-I5801 is good and ready to be rooted. If you want to get shown how to do it, you can take full advantage of this tutorial!

When rooting a device, be it a tablet or a phone, certain methods can be used. Among them is the one we decided to use on your own handset: SRSRoot. We opted for this tool because it presented us with many opportunities for this smartphone model. But actually, the app works with as many different gadgets as you have (or plan on owning). This is a tool which doesn’t refuse Android OS versions; not even the 2.2 Froyo one on your Galaxy Apollo GT-I5801.

The phone came out 4 years ago. It is also known as Samsung Galaxy Naos and Samsung Galaxy Leo. The SRSRoot will easily make its way onto it and you won’t be required to pay for its download there. You will only need to follow our guide. The latest app to help a device go through a rooting is powered by an SRS Server. Among all of the new stuff your phone will experience soon are admin and superuser permission. You are also about to have a faster Samsung S5P6422 MHz CPU to pass the day. These novelties are joined by custom ROMs.Galaxy-Apollo-GT-I5801

The advantages of this procedure

Once the Galaxy Apollo GT-I5801 contains the dedicated app, you’ll gain access to root-only apps. The device won’t experience viruses. It will, however, bask in many battery tweaks as well as customization options. The SRSRoot is an unrooting method, too; bloatware is something that’s completely alien to this app. New features are to be expected, as well. Use a Build ID when you want to root the phone. You can use ours (FROYO.ZFJPE) or another one.

After you gain root access, your smartphone will get rid of its warranty. Online you will find plenty of guides to help you retrieve it. The system partition is only one of the things which will get deleted after you update your rooted device. The root access is another loss resulted after such a procedure. This kind of damage won’t be done to the data or internal / external SD cards inside the handset.


We want you to perform the rooting without experiencing problems. That is why we have the requirements below for you:

  • have USB drivers downloaded on your laptop from over here, then install them on the device as well;
  • only root the handset if its battery is fully charged;
  • backups are very important, which is why we recommend you to create some;
  • a full NANDroid backup has to be generated as soon as the regular one is created;
  • we suggest using a laptop that has Windows on its extended list of specifications;
  • the pograms that protect the laptop from things such as viruses need to be deactivated;
  • the programs which protect the Galaxy Apollo I5801 from the same issues should also be turned off;
  • your smartphone’s USB Debugging will need to be turned on.

Step by step instructions

Once everything’s settled with these instructions, you’ll be shown those steps which help the rooting.

  1. The task we have for you now is this: download the rooting app from this place on the laptop; this is how it works: you’ll spot a download button which has to be clicked on.
  2. The SRSRoot app will then have to be installed and launched on your same laptop. After a couple of minutes, you’ll have to look for Unknown Sources. We’ll make things easier for you: this option is right underneath the one called Settings.
  3. Continue the steps with this one: enable, on the phone, USB Debugging. This is the same option we suggested turning on when we talked about requirements; if you managed to activate the option, you can concentrate on the rest of the steps.
  4. Like this one which advises you to plug the laptop and phone to one another. You’ll see that the handset’s USB cable comes in very handy during this task.
  5. After the cord connects the two, you should move your attention to this step: activate the rooting process. The action needs to be started via the tapping of Root Device (All Methods).
  6. Usually, a rooting will take about 15 minutes. In case something goes wrong here and the 15 minutes become more, redo the steps. After the problem’s saved or it didn’t happen, restart the Samsung GT-I5801.
  7. Its Reboot System Now has to be enabled for that. Making good use of the rooting novelties should be your priority once the phone’s rebooted.

After you see that the root access doesn’t satisfy you anymore, use the SRSRoot to revoke it. After that, use the comment box below!
