How to Root Samsung Galaxy Mini GT-S5570

| On 13, May 2012

The last couple of weeks, I was busy writing tech news and I haven’t done any guides then. In the next few  days, I will burst out 3 rooting tutorials for the most common android phones Pinoys have in order to give them a slight lift and help them find it here. The first stop is how to root Samsung Galaxy Mini. The procedure we are going to use also applies to “other” android but be sure to check it before using.

[important]

DISCLAIMER: NoypiGeeks will not be responsible for any damage   that may possibly occur to your device in any part of the process although it is unlikely to happen if you’ll follow the instructions carefully. Root at your own risk.

[/important]

Rooting a Samsung phone if you’re running Android 2.2.1 Froyo is very easy and it can be done in just a few steps. 

[important]NOTE: If you don’t have Samsung Kies installed, download the Samsung Galaxy Mini drivers.[/important]

  1. Download  SuperOne Click v1.7 HERE.
  2. Enable USB debugging in your phone. Go to Settings>Applications>Development. Put a check mark to the box.
  3. Launch the software on your desktop. It is portable and doesn’t need installation. Your antivirus might detect it as a malware but don’t mind it. It’s fine. Here is a sample of the UI of SuperOne Click.
  4. Super-One-ClickConnect your phone with the use of a USB cable.
  5. Click on the Root Button and patiently wait for the process to finish.
  6. Voila! You now have a rooted android phone.
If your Samsung Galaxy Mini is running Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread, don’t be sad. I have another way for you. Follow this simple steps below.
  1. Download the needed zip file HERE. I suggest to download it directly to your phone and put it in the root of your SD card (not in any folder). If you downloaded it using a computer, transfer it to your SD card.
  2. Turn off your phone and got to recovery mode by pressing the HOME+POWER BUTTON simultaneously.
  3. Choose “Apply update from SD card”. Use the volume rocker for navigation.
  4. Choose the zip file you downloaded and wait for it to finish.
  5. Your phone will automatically reboot. If not, reboot it yourself. Done!
To check if you’re really successful, see your app drawer and look for the superuser icon.
Questions? Doubts? Post them below and I’ll answer them.

    • http://www.noypigeeks.com/ NoypiGeeks

      What do you mean? Please explain the problem further so that I can help you.

  • Htileamas

    bakit may mga surveys yung download mo?.. eh free lang naman yung tools na yan. pinagkakakitaan nyo yung gawa at idea ng iba tapos di man lang kayo nagbigay ng credits sa sources nyo.

    • http://www.noypigeeks.com/ NoypiGeeks

      Dude these links are not mine. It was taken from other sources so the surveys are not mine too. Why would I bother uploading them myself? It is the uploader who locked it and I can’t do anything about that. When I first got it it was not locked. Anyway, you can just find another link. Credits are given where it is due so can you please tell me who’s the very first maker of this tutorial? Hindi ko po siya pinagkakakitaan kung gusto nyo po ireupload nyo at ibigay niyo sakin ang link para mailagay ko dito. Mahirap din kasi maghanap ng link para sa downloads na yan at yan lang ang nakita ko. Salamat.

    How will I know if the process is done? I’m not sure if it froze or nagmamadali lang talaga ako? lol. Anyway, the last sentence was “Running psneuter” and it’s not doing anything na. I checked if i have the Superuser app, but wala pa din, so does that mean hindi pa tapos yung pag-root?
