If you involve an update firmware after you root the phone, you’ll face some issues. Aka: the device’s system partition and root access will be damaged. Data of importance as well as internal / external SD cards will escape this fate. Unfortunately, performing the rooting means that the warranty shall be taken away. There are, of course, options to restore it. Look for a guide that helps with that; make sure it contains your product model.

Prerequisites

To make sure you don’t start the rooting in a bad way, comply with the following:

  • take into account the creation of several standard backups;
  • a full NANDroid backup has to be performed when you’re done with the normal backups;
  • download USB drivers compatible with the phone from this link on your notebook;
  • install them there next;
  • turn off the security programs pre-installed on your notebook;
  • if the smartphone’s battery starts to have low charge levels, you should recharge the device;
  • deactivate the phone’s security programs;
  • your notebook’s operating system needs to be Windows instead of Linux or the Mac one.

Step by step instructions

After you do what needs to be done before the rooting, you’ll get to see how the procedure’s performed. For that, we prepared the steps below.

  1. A rooting tutorial begins with a certain task. In this case, you’ll have to look for the SRSRoot freeware here. After locating the right file, you’ll notice a download button.
  2. It’s there to initiate the app’s download on your notebook. Tap that button, then let the download commence. When it ends, flash the app and open it on the notebook.
  3. On your SHV-M340S there’s an option called Unknown Sources. It’s there to be turned on; so perform this task next. If you have no idea where this option’s located: start by tapping Menu on the Galaxy M Style SHV-M340S, then Settings.
  4. Your option’s under the last one you just tapped. Once the Unknown Sources is finally turned on, time for a different action.
  5. This time you’ll be asked to enable USB Debugging if you haven’t. In case you have turned it on already, then do the following: go to the box that contains the handset’s USB cord.
  6. Take the cable out, then use it as a way to plug the phone to your notebook. If the connection’s created, you can move on to this step: click on Root Device (All Methods). The device is going to end up in a rooting phase.
  7. When it ends in around 15 minutes, you’ll finally experiment with the novelties we introduced you to. Should you have to wait for more than 15 minutes, though, repeat the steps.
  8. Once rooted, the Galaxy M Style SHV-M340S will have to be helped via Reboot System Now. This option needs to be activated so that the phone can restart itself.

If you are not pleased with the root access, you know what to do to revoke it. The same application will do its job as smoothly as before!
