Hi, I want to root my S6500 too. I'm stuck at entering the recovery menu. I just can't do it. I've tried all the methods I could find on the internet and still nothing.

The specs for the phone are:
Model GT-S6500D
Android 2.3.6
Baseband S6500DXXLC3
Kernel version 2.6.38.6 dpi@DELL166#1
Build number GINGERBREAD.XXLC4

I should mention before this I had a galaxy mini S5570 which I rooted successfully using the recovery menu method.

I've tried it but it just booted normally.

Coolsandie I think the unlockroot application is my best bet for now. But it apears that it doesn't suport the S6500 yet. Maybe in some time it will. So I just have to put rooting my phone on hold for now.

Thanks grigoreee it worked. Pressing all the keys until the samsung logo appears will enter in the recovery menu.
From then on is just like all the other phones.

The question is do you need a specific update zip file for this phone model and kernel version or you can use any rooting update for android 2.3.6?

Before you try anything backup your firmware.. and write software,hardware version in a safe place...
