DISCLAIMER: ---You will have successfully rooted Samsung phone only for the models that are mentioned above. Any other phone model is incompatible at the present time. Rooting your device will not brick your phone but it could void your warranty so be careful to reverse the process with unrooting before you decide to take it back to Samsung Service for any further problems (hardware, drop the phone etc.) I’m not responsible for any of your actions bricking your phone with third party programs, custom roms, applications that works under rooting etc. ---

This is only for the people that they are using Gingerbread and can't root their phone with SuperOneClick. You can root your phone with universal_gb_root_v34.zip file for your phone model.

FAQ
AFTER ROOTING I CAN'T SEE SUPERSU APPLICATION?

As some people reported there is sometimes problem with the rooting procedure files can't be extracted properly (applications,binaries) so from today (04.08.2012) in every new update there will be an extra second alternative root zip file recognized with the letter "b" in the end of the version number. As always in life we must have a B PLAN. In this root zip file package it will be only the SuperSu application and the supersu binary, no Busybox or anything else. So if the rooting procedure from above didn't work for you then you should run again in recovery mode the universal_gb_unroot_v13.zip to delete all the half extracted files from the root procedure previously done. After that you can apply universal_gb_root_v34b.zip known as Root Only.



IMPORTANT: If for some reason after rooting with the universal_gb_root_v34b.zip want to install Busybox then when you open the application it will give you a location to install busybox to /system/bin (this is for the reason because there is no busybox binary in this root zip file) you just need to simply relocate the installation to /system/xbin (to relocate the path simply press on the text /system/bin it will open a new window and change it to /system/xbin) . This is for a reason because in the future you might want to remove busybox and many times happens that it can't be uninstalled properly leaving all the applets in bin folder mixing the files with the system files from your Android OS. Then you need to install root explorer and delete all the applets manually and trust me is a painful job. So the problem it will be solved very quickly by installing in /system/xbin. if you don't like it to have anymore later just use the procedure for unroot (READ: HOW CAN I UNROOT MY PHONE?) universal_gb_unroot_v13.zip it will delete all the remaining stuff from busybox in /system/xbin and use again the universal_gb_root_v34b.zip to root.

THERE IS NO SU BINARY AFTER ROOT?

From today (02.05.2012) I can proudly present the third update zip universal_gb_c.c.b.s.f_v11.zip. C.C.B.S.F stand for "Cleanup Carrier Branded System Files" What makes this package very interesting is allowing you to cleanup your System files (applications) from your branded carrier provider such as Shops, Music, Web Launchers, Widgets...Games: Tetris, Sims3 etc ...making free space in the system partition ROM (not internal memory) so later the root installation can take place and have a successfully rooted phone. This package will clean up most of the carrier providers like:

IMPORTANT: The universal_gb_c.c.b.s.f_v11.zip can be  applied in recovery like the rest of the zip files for root and unroot. It will delete all Carrier Branded System Files (Applications) without to interfere with the system files of Samsung Stock ROM's all functions will work normally only the applications from the carrier branded apps will be deleted. In order to bring them back you need to unroot your phone and make a Factory Reset and all will be back as usual. This zip file should be only applied if you have Carrier Provider Phone (like the above list already mentioned) and can't root the phone because of the carrier apps making a full capacity of the Android OS (system partition).

I HAVE TRY ALL THE ABOVE METHODS NOTHING IS WORKING?

Chapter I

-Removing Quickoffice-

Well some Stock Firmwares have been made that in the system partition you can not even copy via recovery a single file. So my task search begin and finally I found the bug to solve the problem. In many Stock Firmwares they put Quickoffice application, this stock firmwares in some cases are very problematic to make root on them. So finally here is the solution and very simple to make a free space for rooting. Apply in recovery the universal_gb_remove_quickoffice_v2.zip and then you can use the universal_gb_root_v34.zip or universal_gb_root_v34b.zip to finally root your phone. So Quickoffice will be deleted from your system partition but you can always install the Quickoffice.apk whenever you want and it will be installed on your SD card (you can have the rooted phone and using again the Quickoffice). If for some reason you need to take your phone to the samsung service center problem with hardware,software or anything like that you can reverse the process to install Quickoffice back to the system partition (if you have installed the Quickoffice.apk uninstall it first from the Task Manager)using first the universal_gb_unroot_v13.zip to unroot and after that use the universal_gb_install_quickoffice_v2.zip to install Qucikoffice back to your system partition and all will be back as normal.

Chapter II

-Removing Thinkfree Office-

Same as Chapter I in many Stock Firmwares we find the application Thinkfree Office, this stock firmwares in some cases are very problematic to make root on them. The solution is very simple we just need to make a free space for rooting in your system partition and remove Thinkfree Office. Apply in recovery the universal_gb_remove_thinkfreeoffice_v2.zip and then you can use the universal_gb_root_v34.zip or universal_gb_root_v34b.zip to finally root your phone. Thinkfree Office will be deleted from your system partition but you can always install the ThinkfreeOffice.apk whenever you want and it will be installed in your internal memory (you can have the rooted phone and using again the Thinkfree Office). If for some reason you need to take your phone to the samsung service center problem with hardware,software or anything like that you can reverse the process to install Thinkfree Office back to the system partition (if you have installed the ThinkfreeOffice.apk uninstall it first from the Task Maneger) using first the universal_gb_unroot_v13.zip to unroot and after that use the universal_gb_install_thinkfreeoffice_v2.zip to install Thinkfree Office back to your system partition and all will be back as normal.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hi derev, cwm recovery will not work on this files that you see they are designed only for original stock recovery and is already mentioned in "IMPORTANT". To workaround on this issue you need to flash again your phone by using the same firmware that you already have (or any other compatible with your country) but this time do not install cwm recovery. Stock firmwares you can find at http://www.samfirmware.com/ good luck.

  12. flash a stock recovery or flash a stock rom? sorry for the lots of asking.. im so noob about this.. :)

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Here how it goes stock recovery is included in every stock rom updated via kies, via odin the firmwares included in the link that I have provided you http://www.samfirmware.com/ for your phone model (go under FIRMWARES and search for your device) and the update software included in your phone to update your firmware via wifi in all this 3 options stock recovery is included. Now if you update your phone in any of this 3 options and install after that CWM the zip files wont work, you will need to remove CWM. And best thing to do is re-flash your phone with stock rom simple as that.

    1. Your phone model: SGH-T589W from Windmobile is supported for root with universal_gb_root_v34.zip. As for the carrier Network it is only directed for universal_gb_c.c.b.s.f_v11.zip file that can remove bloatware applications from the Network Carrier.
