Hi members! Today I'm here to teach you how to root Samsung Galaxy Y GT-S5360.


====Rooting your phone====

1. Download the necessary root package HERE. (I replaced to the latest version.)

2. Copy the downloaded "update.zip" file to the top folder of the microSD card.

(NOTE: DO NOT EXTRACT IT! If you EXTRACT it, it will NOT working for rooting your phone!)

3. If plugged in, unplug the handset from the PC and turn it off.

4. Put it into recovery mode – To do this, press and hold the Volume up key + Home key (the middle button on the front of your device) and press the power button until it goes into recovery mode.

5. Select Apply update from SD card and locate the "update.zip" file you copied to the microSD card. Press the Volume up or down to navigate and then press Home button to select the option.

6. Let the rooting process complete. When done, select "Reboot system now" to restart the device.

Your Galaxy Y should now be rooted!!!

(NOTE: After you rooted your phone, I recommended you to install Root Explorer for game mod and much more!)


If you like this, just click "Thanks" button to me!
Take care and good luck!

OMG!!! What a guide!!! I learned rooting today! Now I will get a Ph.D. (doctorate) in rooting by following this guide. LOL

There are lots of guides (reynaldoj's, eatheat's and manoranjan2050's)
for rooting. Is yours special? New method?
If no then better stop spamming the forum. Read rules, stop spam, all is well!

you can disable signature verification in cwm if you need to



this is how I root my sgy
download cwm
download valkyrie 1.5
put both zips on root of sd card

put phone into recovery mode (vol up home button power button)
install zip
select cwm

now cwm starts
goto mounts and storage
make sure system is mounted (it will display "unmount system" if system is mounted - if it says "mount system" select it so it changes to "unmount system")
go back and select install zip from sd card
select valkyrie zip
select superuser by chainsdd
restart

this will work on any 5360 stock rom although it may not work with some operator varients

There are lots of threads available on rooting this particular piece of hardware, and this thread offers nothing new and/or revolutionary.
