Should you be totally fine with that, then step right in and we will tell you what steps to follow from now on.

Important instructions

  1. And they start with number one, which instructs you to download, on your laptop, an archive called Odin tool 1.85 and another one called Stock Firmware. Do you see them on your comp’s desktop? If yes, you should now use a tool to extract their files to the exact same place: your laptop’s desktop. The minute you extract their contents, you have to open the Odin executable file. How? Use your mouse and double-click on this file.
  2. Now the second step is going to recommend you the following actions: click on PDA, choose the Stock Firmware file and then check mark both F. Reset Time and Auto Reboot. Once these two options are dealt with, you need to make sure that the one named Repartition is not checked.
  3. What you should do next is this: read about step number three which prompts you to switch the Pocket GT-S5300 off. After it’s in that state, your phone needs to be booted into Download Mode by you holding down Volume, Home and Power, all at the same time. Continue by plugging the smartphone to the comp and then clicking on Start; this will make sure that the Pocket S5300 starts its installation of the firmware which will unroot it.
  4. Step four will then ask you to be patient, because the flashing won’t happen in just a couple of seconds. So do something else in the meantime and come back to your phone after a couple of minutes and reboot it.

When you’ll have returned, your Samsung Galaxy Pocket GT-S5300 will have been unrooted at long last.
