How to Root Galaxy Gravity SMART SGH-T589
Galaxy Gravity SMART SGH-T589 is finally going to be rooted. To profit from all sorts of goodies, SRSRoot is needed. You’ll have to end up with this app on your phone. This is all part of our tutorial. Follow its steps and your handset will feature root access!
You should know that the SRSRoot is actually freeware. And that it can also unroot the phone it’s on. But before you can choose to do that, let’s first root the phone. This needs some steps. They will appear once we’re done presenting the app to you.
The benefits of this method
The SRSRoot app is freeware and it’s powered by an SRS Server. Used on your handset, it speeds up its processor’s speed; which CPU looks like this: 800 MHz ARMv6. Launched some 3 years ago, your phone is also known as Samsung Gravity Touch 2, Samsung Smart, Samsung GT2, Samsung SGH-T589 and Samsung Galaxy Q. It contains an Android 2.2.2 Froyo, too. This version won’t be erased by this procedure; the app offers compatibility with all of Google’s OS versions.
Another great thing about the dedicated app is that it works with a wide array of Build IDs; including the one we used: FROYO.UVKF1. The root access has to do with these goodies, too: custom ROMs. They will be quickly followed by customization options and new features. It doesn’t end here. Once the handset has this app flashed on it, you’ll get used to seeing superuser and admin permission, then root-only applications. The battery will receive tweaks to make the device run more. Don’t expect viruses, unwanted stuff and so on once the rooting is over. The SRSRoot doesn’t come with these cons.
The phone comes with default warranty. It won’t end up with one; the rooting will revoke it. Solutions to retrieve it are plenty. When you update your rooted device, its important data will be saved; same goes for the phone’s internal and external SD cards. But some damage will still happen. More precisely: the smartphone won’t end up with its system partition intact. Root access will be revoked at once.
If you are fully done with the pre-requisites, then get on to business. The only way to do that is to:
- download these USB drivers from this page on your notebook;
- look at your phone’s battery level and, if it’s running low, charge the device;
- standard backups are a must, so generate some;
- a full NANDroid backup is something you must also generate;
- your notebook has some security programs and they need to be turned off;
- the Samsung SGH-T589 also has these things, so make sure they’re also turned off;
- USB Debugging (that’s featured on the smartphone) must be turned on;
- the operating system installed on your notebook should be Windows.
Step by step instructions
The steps that lead to a rooted Galaxy Gravity Smart T589 are featured below. Each of them is equally important.
- Let’s start with the first step. For it, you need to download, from here, the SRSRoot app on your notebook. After you open the address we linked to, you’ll come across a download button; click on it. The app will land on the device in a couple of minutes.
- Continue with this step: launch the app after it’s flashed on the notebook. The next action that needs performing sounds like this: turn on Unknown Sources.
- This particular option is easy to locate; tap Menu on the handset, then Settings and take a peek under the latter. You need to enable this option if you’ve forgotten to do it: USB Debugging.
- After successfully performing the previous steps, you should take the phone’s USB cord. This instrument can connect the phone to your notebook. Once both devices have entered a plugging to one another, you’ll be required to commence the smartphone’s intended rooting.
- To do this properly, you’ll need to enable a certain helpful option. Which is this one: Root Device (All Methods). This procedure is going to take no more than 10-15 minutes.
- You should, however, know what to do if it takes more; our advice is to simply return to our steps and perform them once more.
- If you’ve done all of this already, the smartphone is ready to reboot. And the way it can do that is if you turn on this option: Reboot System Now. That will be all; the Galaxy Gravity Smart SGH-T589 is rooted at long last.
You should consider taking your time with the rooted phone. That’s because you may want to unroot it. If that rings true at some point in time, you have the same tool to revoke the root access!
