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:
Kernel version 22.214.171.124 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.
while playing with the keys:
1 shut down from menu (press power button)
volume up + volume down +home and press power. -ANDROID SYSTEM RECOVERY UTILITY
volume down + home and press power - DOWNLOAD MODE
and rom (ram?) dump mode sometimes appears on screen in don't know the key combination v
volume up + home and power nothing....
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?
