How to Root Samsung Galaxy S Relay 4G SGH-T699
Galaxy S Relay 4G SGH-T699 is perfectly suitable for a rooting. Allow this procedure to happen on your phone and you’ll experience something great from it!
This is what tool we used for today’s rooting: SRSRoot. This special software gets to share all of its goodies with you and your handset.
The Samsung SGH-T699 will accustom itself with a faster dual-core 1.5 GHz Krait. Likewise, it’ll have new features. The SRSRoot app has more to offer. Like these: custom ROMs and customization options. Root-only apps and battery tweaks are also part of the new software. As are admin and superuser permission. More is yet to come: the app is able to unroot the handset and is powered by an SRS Server.
The benefits of this procedure
The Build ID we found for your device was IMM76D.T699UVALH1. The SRSRoot software, however, delivers full support for many Build IDs. As it does for different Android versions; the one sported by your handset is the 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich variant.
Samsung Galaxy S Blaze Q is another name for your phone. Fortunately, the SRSRoot is an app which is 100% compatible with different available brands.
When you have a phone which needs to be updated, be careful. Applying an upgrade firmware when there’s already root access on it will wipe its system partition away. That’s not the only disadvantage you’ll have to face. A second con deals with this: the device will have to give up its root access.
Your smartphone comes with a warranty. But yours will be revoked once the rooting software is flashed on the SGH-T699.
We have a bunch of requirements we want you to perform now:
- a standard backup will help save the device’s data during the rooting, so provide one for this phone;
- a full NANDroid backup has to be created;
- your notebook must be running Windows;
- the security software installed on the notebook have to be deactivated till you’re done with the rooting;
- check and see whether your Galaxy S Relay 4G SGH-T699 is in need of a fully charged battery;
- if the battery levels are low, make sure you charge the phone;
- download, on your notebook, USB drivers for your smartphone;
- enable the smartphone’s USB Debugging;
- have the notebook’s security software turned off, too.
Step by step instructions
- Every rooting process must start in a certain way. Which is this: find the SRSRoot app online and download it on your laptop. You will have to access this page to locate said app.
- If you’ve reached that site, make sure you click on a download button that’s right on that website. After the app is downloaded on the laptop, do the following: open it there after you’ve installed it.
- Access Menu now, then tap Settings. There’s a certain option that should be activated now. It’s the one situated right under Settings. Its name is Unknown Sources.
- When it’s launched, you should continue by clicking on USB Debugging to turn it on. This option had to be activated when you prepared the device for the rooting. So, if you’ve already turned it on back then, you are free to perform the next step.
- This step has to be done like this: generate a connection between the smartphone and your laptop. You’ll be successful with this part if you use the phone’s USB cord. If the connection is achieved, move on. If it isn’t, go back and redo the steps.
- The next set of actions will begin with you tapping this necessary option: Root Device (All Methods). Allow some time to pass.
- In general, no more than 15 minutes are needed for such a process to be finally over. We suggest repeating all the steps in case the rooting does not end after fifteen minutes are done.
- Reboot your phone afterwards. For that, go to Reboot System and turn it on. That way, the handset is sure to start once more and complete the procedure.
Root access has just been acquired by your Galaxy S Relay SGH-T699. As soon as the device has the right app, play with the rooting goodies we discussed earlier in our guide.
If they don’t do anything for you, consider an unrooting. Once again, this will be available via the SRSRoot dedicated software.
