How to Root Galaxy Y Plus Duos GT-S5303

Galaxy Y Plus Duos GT-S5303 and the app we got ready for you will make a great team. Learn from us how to root the handset with it!

You have access to a wealth of opportunities if SRSRoot is used on your phone. The latter, launched in late 2013, will soon accustom itself to the kind of novelties which only a rooting can deliver. The application we want you to try out on your phone can be used at any time and it’s free of charge, too. The smartphone is also known under this alternative name: Samsung GT-S5303. Inside it is a processor of this variety: 850 MHz Cortex-A9. Thanks to this freeware application, the CPU’s speed will become better.

The app can be used on a very wide variety of phone and tablets (and they don’t necessarily have to be the most recent models, either). Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich is your handset’s OS; the SRSRoot app will feel fine with it being there, so it won’t erase it. Fortunately still, this tool offers its compatibility to every Android version ever launched by Google. The app is powered by an SRS Server and there are new features attached to it. You can experience your device without worrying about security-related problems.Galaxy-Y-Plus-GT-S5303

The benefits of this procedure

To unroot your smartphone, simply turn to the SRSRoot. Looking forward to customizing the device? The app offers many tweaks to do so. Once the phone’s sporting root access, you’ll end up using a lot of root-only apps and custom ROMs. Bloatware isn’t present, but admin / superuser permission is. And so are tweaks for better battery life. Our selection of a Build ID is this: IMM76D.S5303DDAMG3. The app will accept many other Build IDs you want to root your smartphone with.

If you’re willing to root your smartphone, you’ll have to be willing to lose the warranty that comes with it. But its loss won’t last long; a tutorial that includes your phone model should be used so that you get the warranty restored. Other than that, you have to know what happens if your rooted device ever experiences an upgrade. First of all, the root access will be revoked from the handset; second of all, the system partition inside it will experience deletion. Nothing else of great importance will be damaged. This includes the phone’s internal / external SD cards and its data.


For the time being, make sure you perform certain requirements. They’re all grouped below and sound like this:

  • download USB drivers on the notebook by accessing this particular site;
  • after that, flash them all there, too;
  • the Galaxy Y Plus GT-S5303 must have its battery unit fully charged;
  • having USB Debugging enabled on the phone is a must, so turn it on now;
  • standard backups will have to be created;
  • perform a full NANDroid backup as well;
  • it’s recommended to use a notebook which has Windows already flashed on it;
  • next up, go to the notebook’s security software and turn it off as well;
  • you’re then required to disable the handset’s security programs.

Step by step instructions

  1. This first step will need the phone’s owner to keep the notebook open. How so? Well, this device has to contain the SRSRoot app.
  2. To make the latter part of it, it’s required that you first download it from this specific page; to do that, we recommend clicking on the download button you’ll notice when you land there. The same app will then need an installation on the notebook.
  3. After the SRSRoot is launched on that product, Menu and Settings have to be enabled on the Samsung S5303. Right under Settings is this option: Unknown Sources. It’s your job to activate it.
  4. USB Debugging has to be enabled next; this task is only required of those of you who haven’t activated it so far. Those of you who have can ensure a connection between the handset and notebook. The USB cable that’s part of the phone will plug the two.
  5. Turn on Root Device (All Methods) so that you begin the smartphone’s rooting. After it enters this mode, you’ll need to wait for about 12 minutes; wait more than 15 minutes and you have a problem on your hands. To avoid this from ruining the experience, you should repeat the steps.
  6. If everything goes smoothly, the smartphone has to start again. For this to work, we suggest tapping the following helpful option: Reboot System Now. The device will take very little to restart. When you see it do that, the root access will finally be part of your Galaxy Y Plus Duos GT-S5303.
