How to Root Samsung Galaxy Q SGH-T589R

Galaxy Q SGH-T589R will have a great time with today’s tool. Getting it isn’t a difficult task. You need only spend some time with this tutorial!

Using a Build ID comes with the territory. Our post was created with this version: FROYO.UXKG2. SRSRoot is the tool to provide your phone with root access. This is an app that, besides being free, is available for plenty of different devices. Their release date also doesn’t matter. You’ll be met with numerous novelties after the app’s brought to your phone. The Samsung Galaxy Q SGH-T589R is around 3 years old. The SRSRoot app provides it with custom ROMs and these: new features.

The freeware is powered by an SRS Server. The phone’s operating system is Android 2.2.2 Froyo. This version isn’t going to disappear from the handset; this is possible because the app offers support for the whole number of Android variants launched so far by Google. The application is also responsible for superuser and admin permission. You can also get accustomed to root-only apps. Via the SRSRoot app, there are many methods to end up with a superior battery life. There are also many useful ways to customize the smartphone.Galaxy-Q-T589R

The benefits of this procedure

The phone comes with a processor that may not be as fast as it once was. The SRSRoot is going to make it move faster very soon. Bloatware is unheard of. The handset will have to be unrooted at some point if you don’t like its root access. For that there’s the same app you can use. The procedure doesn’t imply security-related problems.

The important data contained inside the phone doesn’t get lost if you ever update it. Neither are the phone’s internal and external SD cards. But an update will do this: erase the system partition and revoke the root access. Each of these losses will be nullified if you root the smartphone again. Another thing to be aware of before you start the rooting: your handset shall get its default warranty revoked. There’s no other way to get it back than follow a dedicated tutorial; this guide has to include your device’s model instead of a different one.


Time to move on. Between you and the phone’s rooting stand the following requirements:

  • install USB drivers on your laptop after you download them on it from this website;
  • the rooting requires a laptop that’s featuring Windows as its main operating system;
  • the smartphone must have a battery which is charged fully;
  • a set of standard backups has to be initiated;
  • create, after that, a full NANDroid backup;
  • your handset has to function with its security programs disabled;
  • its USB Debugging is to be turned on;
  • your laptop’s security software needs to face a deactivation.

Step by step instructions

Your laptop’s going to get the SRSRoot. This is the first step towards a rooted Samsung SGH-T589R.

  1. Grab this file from here and make sure it’s downloaded on that laptop; this requires the clicking of a button which is on that site. When it is, you must also do this with it: flash it there and open it next.
  2. Once these actions are completed, select Menu and tap it. Settings needs to be chosen and tapped, too. Unknown Sources should be selected next; it’s an option located under the Settings one from before.
  3. Tap it, then do the following: turn on USB Debugging. The latter should already be activated; you had to do it for the requirements.
  4. If you tapped it before, then move on by taking the phone’s USB cord. Then take the Samsung SGH-T589R and laptop. That USB cable will establish a necessary connection between the two devices.
  5. The smartphone can be rooted after the products have entered that plugging phase. To avoid issues here, here’s how to start the process: tap Root Device (All Methods). About 12 minutes should be enough waiting time; but if more than 15 minutes are up, you need to do this: redo the steps.
  6. Your smartphone is now prepared to start again. Restart it by tapping an option known as Reboot System Now.

When you’re done and the phone’s restarted, use the root access to experiment. Maybe you find out that a rooting isn’t what you expected it to be. Should you reach that conclusion, best use the same tool to remove the root access.

The Galaxy Q SGH-T589R is currently equipped with all those exciting novelties. Give them a try. If you’re not satisfied with them, restore the phone to how it used to be; the SRSRoot will be helpful here!
