How to Root Samsung Rugby Smart SGH-I847

Samsung Rugby Smart SGH-I847 will have its fair share of elements after it’s rooted. The rooting method we offer with this guide will help your smartphone plenty. And it will do so after the steps below are performed.

The device you’re on the verge of rooting will have it good after the deed’s done. Consider this procedure in case you’re after something completely new. If you are, SRSRoot lets you get it absolutely free. The dedicated app we’ve mentioned allows the device’s user to use any kind of Build ID they see fit. We opted for this one: GINGERBREAD.UCLA4.

The smartphone you’ll root with the SRSRoot software has many goodies to expect from this tool. Your device is 2 years old already, so its 1.4 GHz Scorpion CPU needs new power; it will have that as soon as the SRSRoot comes on. Android 2.3.6 Gingerbread comes along with your phone. This version is supported by the new app, as are all the other

The benefits of this procedure

To have an easy to customize device, you need customization tweaks. The rooting offers just that. The SRSRoot app is powered by an SRS Server. This important tool works with many gadgets and it lets you unroot yours with complete success. You will have the opportunity to flash, on your AT&T phone, as many custom ROMs as you want. Moreover, the battery will receive options for stronger performance.

The SRSRoot app is one of the rooting solutions lacking bloatware. The app won’t let the smartphone deal with security problems, either. The Samsung Rugby Smart SGH-I847 can enjoy new features and root-only apps, too. Admin and superuser permission will follow up soon.

You have to perform the rooting if you want novelties, but the procedure will revoke the warranty. A rooted device that wants an update will look forward to a revoked root access. The handset will lose its system partition as well. The upgrade you may want to perform won’t make you lose internal / external SD cards or the important data on your Rugby Smart SGH-I847.


Your job right now is to cater to these crucial requirements:

  • take USB drivers from here and transfer them to your laptop;
  • after they are installed on the device, look at the phone’s battery;
  • if its charge levels are low, perform a recharge of the unit;
  • help the handset’s important content stay safe by generating a series of regular backups;
  • a full NANDroid backup should be initiated after the standard ones are performed;
  • Windows is the only OS version that goes with our guide;
  • the security software working on your smartphone need to be deactivated as you’re performing the upcoming rooting steps;
  • launch the laptop’s security programs to have them deactivated for this last pre-requisite;
  • follow the steps below to root your Rugby Smart SGH-I847.
