Samsung unleashed a truckload of Android devices for almost every price range in the market this year. Its top-of-the-line phone, the Galaxy S2, made waves among those who want a high-end phone–although it’s a bit high-end on the price, too. For those who can make do with a phone with mid-range specs and a comfortable price range, there’s the Samsung Galaxy Mini GT-S5570.
Being another Android gadget, the Galaxy Mini is susceptible to rooting and further user customization. One common method for rooting the Galaxy Mini is through the use of SuperOneClick, which, unfortunately, doesn’t work for some owners of the Galaxy Mini or turns out to be somewhat cumbersome.
Luckily, there’s an alternative method. It’s still an easy method, although it takes a little more work than the one-click solution that many have been accustomed to. In this article, you will learn how to root your Galaxy Mini by flashing an update file to your phone. The update files used in this method were originally meant for the Samsung Galaxy Ace, but it was discovered that the same update works for the Galaxy Mini, too.
Before you go ahead with the steps, remember that you are hacking your phone at your own risk. There are no guarantees that this method will work for your device, and we are not responsible for any damage that arise from your following of the instructions in this guide. If you are willing to take the risks, go ahead and follow the instructions below.
Congratulations! You have successfully rooted your Samsung Galaxy Mini GT-S5570. Enjoy the many benefits of having a rooted device.
