How to Root Galaxy Transform SPH-M920
Galaxy Transform SPH-M920 is in luck. And you with it. How so? Because we have an unrooting guide for you if you’re interested. Should you look for customization tweaks, new stuff and much more, we give you SRSRoot. Its qualities and installation method are displayed below!
With the SRSRoot you have the promise of great novelties. They’re all very welcome since your Sprint’s Galaxy Transform SPH-M920 will become so much better. It will all begin with new features. The goodies also contain stuff such as a much faster 800 MHz Samsung S3C6410 CPU. Once your phone can deliver that, it will also have root-only apps and superuser permission along with battery tweaks.
The benefits of this procedure
FROYO.EB28 is the Build ID we went with. As an unrooting app, this tool is compatible with other such tools; that means you can use a completely different one for your smartphone. The fact that it’s free of charge makes this app even more appealing. The SRSRoot is a tool that offers its services to a wide variety of products. The one you own comes with Android 2.2.2 Froyo; this OS won’t be affected by the freeware. The SRSRoot will gladly revoke the root access for you if you want that.
There are custom ROMs and also admin permission to expect from the rooting. This app brings with it customization options and a lack of bloatware. Powered by an SRS Server, the app has no viruses to damage the handset.
If you’re set on upgrading the phone after the root access lands on it, there’ll be consequences. Such a one is the loss of root access. Another consequence is the loss of the phone’s system partition. Even if these get damaged, you’ll still enjoy the internal and external SD cards. No data will be lost in the process, either. The warranty, however, will become scarce if you root the phone (to get it back on the device, use a suitable guide).
You’re now in need of requirements. They are crucial to a rooting post. As such, prepare both your phone and laptop, then be ready to do the following:
- locate, on this page, USB drivers which work best with your handset;
- if the smartphone’s battery levels are low, you must take precaution and charge the device;
- backups are needed so that nothing of importance is lost from the phone during its rooting;
- a full NANDroid backup is needed, too, so create one as well;
- the security programs used by your laptop need to be deactivated for the time being;
- then go to the phone and have its security programs deactivated, too;
- the Galaxy Transform SPH-M920 has something called USB Debugging and you need to turn it on;
- Windows is the only OS version that your laptop must sport.
Step by step instructions
When each of these pre-requisites has been dealt with, you can start with the rooting.
- As far as first steps go, here’s your task: go here. After you launch the page we indicated, click on its download button. The SRSRoot will quickly begin its journey on to your laptop.
- Wait until the freeware’s download is over. After a couple of minutes of doing that, you should go to the app and install it.
- Afterwards, open it on the laptop and tap Menu on the phone. Next, tap Settings on the same device; this will take you to Unknown Sources. This option needs to be turned on; that’s why you should tap it.
- Moving on, here’s what’s required of you now: activate, if you haven’t already, an option called USB Debugging. This time around, follow that task with another one.
- This step asks you to do something different: create a connection between the SPH-M920 and laptop. This is an action that will use the help of your smartphone’s USB cord. When this tool has been used and the plugging is established, continue with the next step.
- Here is how this one looks: find and tap an option which will start the rooting. The name of this is Root Device (All Methods). After the procedure begins, you need to wait around 12 minutes; but not more than 15 minutes.
- If 16 minutes pass and the Samsung SPH-M920 is not rooted, you’d better try and repeat the steps from before. When the situation’s been mended, time for one last step.
- This will ask you to do the following: return to the phone and restart it. Reboot System Now is the right option for this job; tap it and wait until the rebooting has been completed.
Once it is, you need to see if you like those rooting benefits. Because if you don’t, the SRSRoot will take the root access away.
