Detailed Guide CWM,ROOT,UNROOT For Samsung Galaxy Grand Quattro GT-I8552

Hi..
As Rahul has already posted about rooting,unrooting but i c still people having problem.
So,here is detailed guide for it with
latest Superuser and binaries

================================================== ================================================== ======================

CWM RECOVERY v6.0.3.6

Flashing With Odin

Install USB Drivers of your Device and remember an odin flashable file is supposed to be in .tar or .tar.md5 format only.

DOWNLOAD SAMSUNG USB DRIVERS

Lets Begin :-

1. First be sure USB Debugging is checked in ur device ( Settings>Developer Options>USB Debugging )
2. Extract the Odin file from the zip.
3. Open Odin3 (Run As Administrator).
4. Put your device in download mode. To do so, press Volume Down And Home And Power Button all together and when it vibrates release
Power Button but keep pressing left ones. You should have a triangle with an android janitor while it's saying downloading ..
VOL UP TO CONTINUE...
5. Now connect USB to PC ,you should see a blue rectangle with COM:xx and saying Added. It means that your device is ready to be flashed!
6. Go into the PDA section and select your .tar file.(CWM Recovery)
7. Dont check any option (F.reset time and Auto reboot are checked by default) So just uncheck Auto Reboot.
8. Now click Start.
9. When it's finished, it should say that "Res OK" in Odin..
10. Now remove ur USB and remove ur battery and put it back and go to Recovery Mode (Volume UP And Home And Power Button all
together and when it vibrates release Power Button but keep pressing left ones).

GUESS WHAT :- U r in CWM Recovery

NOTE :- Never click reboot recovery in advanced option in CWM Recovery it will cause bootloop or factory reset from phone settings do factory
reset from CWM Recovery,if by mistakenly u got bootloop just flashed CWM Recovery again.
( Remember this time Auto Reboot should be Checked )

but its totally safe ,just follow each and every step carefully
good luck
