How to Root Galaxy Pocket Plus GT-S5301
One of the best ways to spend time with your Galaxy Pocket Plus GT-S5301 is if you root it. Should you want that, we suggest grabbing an app that’s very popular right now. There’s plenty of info on the matter in today’s post!
Your smartphone is not more than 2 years old. Released back in 2012, the device lets you enjoy many nice things. Very soon, you’ll have many more. These novelties aren’t the only additions; in exchange for our rooting tool, you’ll hold an improved smartphone.
The method we’re using today is an app which allows you to use it for free. The instrument’s name is SRSRoot. The thing about this app is that it’s also powered by an SRS Server. Besides all of this, the freeware has the ability to help you customize the phone. Once you’re done with that, you can move on to the new features you’re offered. The SRSRoot enables you to root your phone; but it also gives you the possibility to unroot it!
The benefits of this procedure
There’s something you need to know before you follow our tutorial. The procedure has to be managed with a Build ID. Use ours if you don’t know what to opt for: IMM76D.S5301XXAMC1. If, however, you have another ID on your mind, use that one; the SRSRoot won’t mind. Root access also offers a faster processor (which, in your device’s case, is 850 MHz). Root-only apps and custom ROMs will land on the phone afterwards.
Your handset uses this OS version: Android 4.0.4 ICS. The SRSRoot doesn’t take it away. The phone is going to enjoy battery tweaks and superuser / admin permission. The app doesn’t serve you bloatware and neither does it throw security problems in the mix. The last thing to be said about this app is that it works with numerous other gadgets.
Rooting the smartphone equals to losing its warranty. There’s good news: get it back with a guide that fits your device’s model. When the smartphone is rooted, you will probably want to flash an upgrade firmware on it. If so, your Galaxy Pocket Plus S5301 will lose both of the following: root access and system partition. Important stuff such as internal / external SD cards, data and such will function on it as usual.
In case you want a device with root access, you should first consider some important guidelines. They go by the name of requirements. Here they are asking you to perform these tasks:
- locate USB drivers (that are fully compatible with the phone) over here;
- download them on your notebook;
- after they are installed on the same product, turn on USB Debugging on your Samsung GT-S5301;
- quickly start the creation of a set of normal backups;
- have a full NANDroid backup created as well;
- Windows should be the only version running on your notebook;
- your smartphone’s security programs need a deactivation;
- same will have to happen with the notebook’s security options;
- use a fully charged device for this tutorial.
Step by step instructions
Time now to guide you through our steps. If properly performed, you’ll very soon hold a rooted device!
- This is the best way to begin the procedure: download, on your notebook, the SRSRoot app. The freeware can be found at this online address. There, you’ll see a download button that must be clicked on.
- Once you’ve gotten this app to be part of the notebook, you can enable Unknown Sources as soon as the SRSRoot has been flashed and launched on the same product.
- To turn on the Unknown Sources option, find it by looking under the handset’s Settings. While you’re here, activate USB Debugging as well (only do so if you haven’t tapped it).
- The next big thing is to have your phone and notebook connected to each other. Help them reach that state by using your smartphone’s USB cable. The two products will be plugged to one another soon.
- When they are, the actual rooting can begin! Enter this mode by tapping Root Device (All Methods). A period of 13 minutes is needed for the process to end.
- If you find yourself waiting more than a quarter of an hour, you have to redo these steps. If you aren’t unlucky at this stage, you have to launch Reboot System Now. Tap it, then let the Galaxy Pocket Plus GT-S5301 automatically reboot.
The rebooting once finished, you’ll find yourself with a rooted device. Explore the new stuff you have access to. If the rooting isn’t enough to keep you on your toes, the SRSRoot will revoke the phone’s root access as promised.
