Hello guys, i have a Gt-S5300b (galaxy pocket)

I'm trying to root it, i followed the guides here and from other sites but i always get an erro message when i try to apply the update.zip ( i tried many files from different sites), i even tried to apply from CWM but it didn't work.

Just rooted a Samsung Galaxy Pocket GT-S5300B using Root_Cori.zip - did not work on the first attempt because the updater sript does not have GT-S5300B just GT-S5300. You have to open Root_Cori.zip file and navigate to /META-INF/com/google/android/ directory. Open the updater-script file and add GT-S5300B to assert lines:

Quote:

assert(getprop("ro.product.device") == "GT-S5300B" ||
getprop("ro.product.product") == "GT-S5300B"||

Save the updater-script file, cose the Root_Cori.zip and copy it to your phone.

Maybe we had the same problem. If that is the case then this shold work.
