How to Root Samsung Galaxy Exhilarate SGH-I577

Galaxy Exhilarate SGH-I577 has an important mission to attend to. That is a rooting. We will explain what to do and which method to use for best results. Everything you need to know on this matter is detailed in the guide we introduce below.

Before you root a device, your AT&T phone in particular, you need a good Build ID. SRSRoot app will work with many of these tools. Our pick of a Build ID is this: IMM76D.UCLH3; you are free to use whichever you prefer.

Your smartphone’s 2 years old already. Root access will have it up-to-date very soon with its goodies. The latter are detailed in our next couple of paragraphs. Before that, though, you need to know that this application is a freeware one. To unroot the device at some point, this is the method to use.

The tool supports every kind of gadget launched and it’s powered by an SRS Server. Your phone’s Android 4.0.4 OS won’t get lost in the process. The dedicated app used to root the phone works equally well with each of the Android versions already available.Galaxy-Exhilarate-SGH-I577

The benefits of this procedure

If you want a longer lasting battery, the SRSRoot app will make it so. The device’s dual-core 1.2 GHz won’t go as slowly as it does; the rooting will bring a superior performance from this CPU.

Root-only apps and new features are all delivered by the new rooting app your phone will sport. Custom ROMs along with customization options are also part of the novelties. No viruses will appear after the end of the rooting. Bloatware will also be left out. But the handset will get to feature admin and superuser permission.

There’s something you should know about updating a rooted device. When you have just upgraded the Samsung I577, its root access will be gone. So will its system partition. The phone doesn’t have to miss its data or its internal and external SD cards. The SRSRoot app makes sure nothing bad happens to them or to the other important stuff on your handset.

Root access will always bring more than goodies. This process will bring about cons, as well. The warranty on your Galaxy Exhilarate SGH-I577 will be the one to bite the dust. After it ends up revoked, you need to find a suitable tutorial that will help restore it.
