The benefits of this method

Available since 2012, the Galaxy Music Duos GT-S6012 will enjoy the rooting even if it has an Android 4.0.4 ICS version. This app offers compatibility with a wide array of Android variants. The same happens with Build IDs: this app can work with many different ones. The Build ID we used for this procedure was IMM76D.S6012XWAMH2.

If an unrooting is what you’re after at some point, the SRSRoot provides a way to do that, too. And the end result will happen smoothly so you won’t lose anything important on your handset. There’s an SRS Server which is powering this rooting tool. You will see that this app works with many brands.

Another advantages of having your device rooted with this tool: you won’t receive bugs or unnecessary programs, files and so on.

However, there are some cons which might put you off about the whole procedure. First of all, your handset’s warranty will be revoked. Second: if you ever look for an update method and apply it, the phone’s root access is going to be revoked. Third: the system partition will no longer feature on the device. A rooting will never damage important data or the handset’s internal / external SD cards.


We have a group of requirements for you to look into before you root the device:

  • the Galaxy Music Duos S6012 will need a couple of backups generated to store its crucial files;
  • use the tips here to create a full NANDroid backup;
  • your handset will need to have USB Debugging turned on;
  • a fully charged battery is very important, so charge the phone if charge levels are really low;
  • install USB drivers for the smartphone on your notebook;
  • in case the handset’s security programs are on, disable all of them;
  • next, be sure to deactivate the security programs working on your laptop;
  • our rooting guide has to be performed using a laptop that has a Windows OS.

Step by step instructions

If you are done following these guidelines, the rooting guide is on its way.

  1. The beginning of this rooting looks as such: have the laptop ready for a download. The newest addition to it will be the SRSRoot app. To locate the latter, access this page. Then click on the download button appearing on that site.
  2. When the file is flashed on your laptop, be sure to open this app on it. Unknown Sources is the option you’ll have to turn on next. The option called like that is under Settings (which is available from Menu).
  3. If you already enabled USB Debugging, you can go for another step. In case you haven’t done that, turn this option on now. The Samsung GT-S6012 and your laptop must enter a connection afterwards.
  4. If you’re unsure how this should be done, we’ll teach you: take the USB cable belonging to the handset. The connection is going to be over after a few minutes are up.
  5. Time to start the rooting. For that, have Root Device (All Methods) tapped. Approximately 15 minutes will have to pass before the process is over. So be sure to wait.
  6. In case more than 15 minutes tick by, you’d better repeat our steps from the very first one to the step just mentioned here. Reboot the device when the previous step is finished.

The rooting is now over. Which means that you can use the new features, personalize the GT-S6012 and so on. Once you don’t like what you see, you’re free to take the root access away with the same application.
