How to Root Philips Xenium Dual SIM W832

Your Philips Xenium W832 has an opportunity to be so much better than in the past. SRSRoot is the helping hand your phone needs. To install it and benefit from its advantages, you have this guide.

For a device which has a release date of 2012, root access is more than needed. This is a procedure that does a lot of good for a product. To have the Philips W832 rooted is to go through many changes. They are all required if you want to use an improved device. Each of the new things the phone experiences contribute to its well-being.

The benefits of this procedure

That SRSRoot tool we introduced above needs a proper mentioning. It’s an app for which you have to pay nothing. The freeware will, once installed, improve this 2-year-old phone of yours. Besides doing that, the app can unroot it at any time. Powered by an SRS Server, the tool is compatible with the handset’s Android 4.0.4 ICS operating system.Philips-Xenium-Dual-SIM-W832

If you’ve been worrying about the device’s slow dual-core 1 GHz Cortex-A9 CPU, the freeware will take your distress away. The app can speed up things by a lot. The rooting should have a Build ID. Your phone can support every version you throw at it thanks to the SRSRoot. The variant we picked up was this: Philips_W832_1247_V05_RU. With this rooting tool, the smartphone isn’t in danger of security problems. This is avoided, too: bloatware.

This application is going to present these to your phone: custom ROMs. That’s only the beginning. You will afterwards experience root-only apps. Customization and battery options are coming up next. Also available are the following: admin / superuser permission and new features.

After every rooting, the phone you’ve performed this one loses its warranty. It’s also quick to have it returned; look for that tutorial which tells you how the restoration works. You can update the phone any old time you want. But by doing that, you lose its root access and this: system partition. An upgrade doesn’t mess with a gadget’s internal / external SD cards or its data.


This is how our requirements are all about:

  • download, from here, USB drivers on your laptop;
  • they must all be flashed on it, and after that launched on this device;
  • USB Debugging is to be enabled on your Philips Xenium W832;
  • generate a backup to keep the handset’s important content safe from damage;
  • a full NANDroid backup is to be created, too;
  • your laptop’s operating system must be, for this guide, Windows;
  • a disabling of the laptop’s security software must be performed;
  • perform the same action on the phone’s security programs;
  • your smartphone’s battery has to be charged fully.

Step by step instructions

You’re about to be introduced to rooting steps. Follow them and the root access will quickly show up!

  1. The action which begins it all tells you to download the SRSRoot on the laptop. The website you’ll find the app at is this one. On it is a download button which must be clicked on by you.
  2. Next up: wait for the download to be done, then be sure to install the freeware on the same laptop. This rooting tool should also be launched there.
  3. Settings needs to be activated, from Menu, on the smartphone. Your next job goes like this: enable, on the handset, the option under Settings. This one’s name is Unknown Sources.
  4. Another step to be performed is the following: tap, if you have not done so, the option referred to as USB Debugging.
  5. If did tap it previously, then plug the Philips Xenium W832 to your laptop through the handset’s USB cord. Your devices need a few minutes to complete the connection. When they are done with that, you can finally concentrate on the actual rooting.
  6. This mode is very easy to enter into; you just need Root Device (All Methods); after finding this option, enable it. Once activated, the process will only request a couple of minutes of waiting.
  7. After the procedure stops, you’ll move on to the last task. But if the rooting is not over in 15 minutes or even less, the phone has to go through the previous steps again. If, however, everything goes well, you don’t have to repeat anything.
  8. [sc name=”banner-jos”]Instead of redoing the procedure, here’s what you can do: restart the phone. There is even an option that, once activated, helps you with the rebooting. The name is Reboot System Now. Once the device can start again on its own, the root access it just received can be explored!

Use the new benefits to make sure they’re what you wanted. In case they aren’t what you so wished for, rely on the same SRSRoot for an unrooting.
