Important instructions

  1. Our unrooting tutorial begins with step one. Here is what you are recommended to do for it: download three files which are called Odin tool, Stock Firmware and Fastboot, respectively. Then, once you’ve grabbed each of these files, you should place them on your laptop, then go and take out their contents, with an archive opener, to the same place.
  2. The actions to be performed for the next step, the second one, are the following: enable USB debugging. The steps to take for this are as follows: go to the phone’s Menu, tap on Settings, choose Applications, opt for Development and you will see the option that needs to be enabled.
  3. Step three comes next and tells you to employ the USB cable of the Gio S5660 so that you are able to plug the handset to your computer. Now make sure to go to the laptop’s desktop so that you can open a Command Line Window; here is how we do it: select and keep pressed the Shift key and use the mouse to right-click on the display, after which you should opt for Open command line here.
  4. After such a long step three comes step four: enter this command
    adb reboot download
    into the Command Line Window.
  5. Now wait as the GT-S5660 reboots into Download Mode, then see what step five has to say; which is this: open the Odin file by double-clicking on it. Next: click on PDA.
  6. For step six you need to choose Stock Firmware and check F. Reset Time as well as Auto Reboot in Odin tool.
  7. The seventh step needs you to uncheck Repartition if you see it’s checked. Then start the installation of the firmware by clicking on Start.
  8. The Galaxy Gio GT-S5660 is going to reboot soon and you’ll see that it’s unrooted.
