      • ignas

        • Viraj Kshatriya

          Try the same while your phone is up (i.e. don’t use recovery mode while running runme.bat file. Instead keep it in normal mode)…

  • Rajanikanth

    Rootme.zip having virus buddy. my antivirus Norton 360 showing the folder contains the virus.

    What will I do now?

    • Viraj SK

      It isn’t a virus. It contains an exploit called ‘pseutner’, which will be injected into your phone while rooting process (being an exploit, antivirus detects it as a virus). In order to avoid this problem, please disable your anti-virus for a while…

  • jefferson santanna

    One question: is there an alternative rom compatible with S7500L – version for the Hispanic market? I read that the normal version does not work on this model S7500. A big hug from Brazil!

  • Mattyninegrand

    you said i need to root to use titanium but no need to install CFW rom

    Further up the posts, I posted along time ago same thing happened and you said cant run custom recovery without custom rom installed so i flashed with an OFW

    I’m confused!!!!!!!!

    Right I have followed your instructions to root my phone and it has worked, but…

    I am stuck in the CWM recovery

    Please what do I need to do from here to get my phone working and be able to run titanium

    • Mattyninegrand

      help!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Mattyninegrand

    Bugger!!!!! phone now just re-boots into recovery mode

  • Mattyninegrand

    right so i take it now i’m rooted – how do i get titanium on there please?

  • Mattyninegrand

    sussed it!!!! – only get error if you run the runme.bat as administrator – if you just double click the runme.bat then it works

  • Mattyninegrand

    Hi

    I want to delete Virgin mobile apps that cant be deleted through the usual way, I have read to use titanium backup – Do I need to install a custom rom to be able to run titanium? if not, what is necessary to get titanium installed and running

    Thanks

    • Shreyas

      You must root your phone to use titanium backup.
      No need to install custom ROMs

      • Mattyninegrand

      Check if you’ve rooted your using Root Checker App. If it shows ‘Rooted’ then install Superuser from Play Store..

  • mattyninegrand

    all worked fine had to use the fix permissions function – problem is every time i try and re-boot it just boots back into recovery mode – help!!!!!!!

    • Viraj SK

      You can’t use CWM with stock ROM. That’s why it is booting into recovery mode again & again.

      If you’ve planned to flash a custom ROM then only keep CWM installed, otherwise flash any stock firmware to make your device work again..

      • mattyninegrand

        Ah right i see thanks, did download a stock FW incase i needed to put it back on but i was able to recover it by just running odin again and all booted fine – thanks for quick response, i was thinking of putting a CFW of JB on but see various issues especially with wifi so think i’ll wait for the official overdue release of JB – though I dont think it will ever happen :(

      using vol up + home + power button is also one of the way to enter in the recovery mode as suggested by viraj but u can also try any app such as “rom manager”, “rom toolbox”, “root toolbox” etc to enter into the recovery mode easily…!!! :)

  • sriram

    And please show me the process,how to un root ??!

  • sriram

    then whats the use of rooting ??what changes can i make after rooting to my ace plus ??

    • https://plus.google.com/109451511715592775195/posts Viraj

      You can use apps which requires root access (for eg. Titanium Backup)..

    • pravin gaikwad

      rooting n its uses:

      as “admin” is to “pc” same “rooting” is to mobile..!!!!

      1. you can increase your processor speed and install big apps.
      2. u can install or uninstall system apps.
      3. you have all the root acces to change any system file.
      4. you can install custom roms.
      etc etc./…..!!!!

      eg. >> take the case of “galaxy fit”… if its not rooted then u cant install “swype” in that mobile but once its rooted n u its processor speed is increased you can easily install this app.. (tested practically…)

          u can try flashing your phone using ODIN.

          ( go in download mode>> connect usb >> wait for the box to become yellow (in odin)>> selected the required files>>slick on start>> wait till “pass” msg appears in box.)

          hope it will work..!!! n dont worry about brick n ol cz there are lots of ways to make the phone work again… :)

      there are many roms available for galaxy ace plus such as… gaple, inspiration, alacritus, kk9, cm 10.1… out of these “inspiration” rom is the most stable rom for galaxy ace plus. it is based on gingerbread 2.3.6 but it has ICS like user interface. everything is working in that rom..
