Important instructions

  1. Step number one gets us in the groove with the following instruction: activate the USB Debugging by clicking on Settings, then choosing Applications, after that selecting USB Debugging and in the end choosing the button situated close to this option. Then plug one of the phones to your laptop (after performing the following steps, connect the other handset and do the same once we finish this guide).
  2. Step number two requires the following task: get access to the USB Storage mode.
  3. The third step says as follows: copy universal_gb_root_v15.zip archive to the first directory from the phone’s microSD card the second you see the phone asking how to perform the connection. At this point it’s best to move the archive using the USB storage option.
  4. Next: unplug the smartphone from the comp.
  5. Step number five has you doing as follows: switch the handset off and get in Recovery Mode by the old-fashioned way: keep pressed at the same time for about 5 seconds the buttons for Volume Up, Home and Power.
  6. For step number six you need to keep pressed the buttons and wait until the Recovery mode appears on the screen. Go to Recovery Menu then and opt for Apply update from SD card.
  7. Step number seven tells you this: locate universal__gb_root_v15.zip archive.
  8. Step number eight will want you to choose this option by tapping on Home and then looking whether or not Install from SD complete comes on-screen. When it does: choose Reboot system now.
  9. Now you should get an app called Root Checker. You will find it in Google Play. Or try and see if Superuser is installed on your handset. If it is, then the rooting went as desired and there’s nothing else left to do other than experience a rooted device.

When you’re done with all of the above, repeat the same steps for the other smartphone like we mentioned. If you decide to unroot the B5510 or B5512, you can follow this guide.
