    Re: What is the Procedure to Root Android Samsung Galaxy Y phone? What is the Benefits of Rooting?

    Hello Friend,


    Rooting" is the process of modifying the operating system on your device (android) to grant you complete control over it which means that you can overcome limitations that the manufacturers put on your phone. It is basically “hacking” your Android device.




    Benefits of Rooting:-


    1)Installing Custom Roms:- you can actually change the entire look and feel of your phone.This can increase your phone's speed by replacing the kernel with hyper-optimized versions.


    2)Run Special Applications:-Use special apps like Titanium Backup,Samba Filesharing,AutoKiller Memory Optimizeretc.


    3)Ability to Back Up And Restore The Whole System


    4)Freeing up memory:-Rooting allows you to move installed applications to your SD card and thus saves you space for your important docs.


    5) Ability to tether a computer:-Use your phone as modem.


    However there are some serious disadvantages:-


    1)Rooting voids your device’s warranty


    2)Viruses:-you are playing with source code and you thought you'll not face them.


    3)Bricking your phone.


    Steps for Rooting your phone


    1)Backup your data


    2)Enable USB debugging:-Settings > Applications > Development and ensure Enable USB Debugging is ticked.


    3)Disable Antivirus.


    4)Put the phone into Recovery Mode:- press the Volume UP on Volume Down Key + OK button, and holding both simultaneously press the Power Button to get into recovery mode.


    5)Load up the insecure kernel using Odin3:-Connect your Galaxy S2 to your PC and Run Odin3 application on your computer.check that only the 'Auto Reboot' and 'F. Reset Time' check boxes are ticked in.




    6)Click the PDA button.


    7)Select the kernel you obtained




    7)Switch off your phone once again and reboot.


    8)Reload a secure kernel




    Hope It Helps!


    Thanks and visit again

    In simple words rooting means to upgrade your device.It can upgrade the Android version.
    Suppose someone has Android version 2.2 then with the rooting can upgrade it to 2.3 version.It performed to overcome the limitation.On Android, rooting can also facilitate the complete removal and replacement of the device's operating system.The process of rooting varies by device.Benefits of rooting is that it can let you control your Android very easily,also provide good backup & restore the whole system,also help you to save space,provide you special application & also install custom ROM.
    But overall I suggest you not to do Rooting.It might harm your device either in short term or long term.

    hey

    Normally rooting means to upgrade the version of android on your smartphone. That is if you have android 2.3.7 and you want to upgrade to android 4.0.3 ICS .

    You have many kind of roms available in the internet to load it in your device. But it will void your warranty if you have any

    For galaxy y unfortunately the maximum available update is android 2.3.7 you cant go beyond that because the hardware wont support.

    thank you
