Smile [Q] Need help rooting Samsung Galaxy Young s6310

Hello, everybody! I recently bought a Samsung Galaxy Young s6310 and I want to root it. I have read about rooting, and about different methods of doing so, and I resorted to Framaroot, which didn't quite work. I tried many versions of Framaroot, and every single try had two outcomes: the Aragorn exploit didn't work, the Gandalf crashed (I tried restarting the app 5 or 6 times, but still it wouldn't work).
So Framaroot would be out of the picture. A quick mention: my phone had JB 4.1.2 as a default OS, and most of them come with GB 2.3.6.
I abandoned the idea of rooting it with Framaroot, and I saw another possibility in SRSROOT. Did anyone root his phone with SRSROOT? Are there any risks involved? (mainly in the rooting process, not what it implies afterwards) I have heard that this method is safe, because no flash is required, you just connect your phone to USB, press a button and it's done. Another method I found was the Unlockroot application.
What is the simplest method to root my phone? And the safest one, of course.

I have a Galaxy Nexus so I don't know many ways to root the Galaxy Y. But I have a solution to root it that almost certainly will work.
First flash or boot a custom recovery than flash the latest supersu.

Here's a CWM recovery for your phone:

It says there to "flash with Odin". Not sure how to do that, you might want to check Google.

I tried flashing a recovery file from Djalo96's FTP, and Odin doesn't recognize my phone while in download mode, and yes, I have the ADB and fastboot drivers. Odin detects my phone while in normal mode, but when in download, it doesn't show me anything. Sheesh, I never knew it was SO hard to root a phone. I heard something about unlocking the bootloader. I understand the concept behind this, but how do I achieve that?
P.S. I tried rooting it with Unlockroot Pro and SRSROOT and it didn't work. I suppose it's because of this bootloader issue.

you have the samsung drivers do you? you don't need to unlock anything, i have rooted mine with the same guide, and it worked, so if you have installed kies or just the samsung usb driver it should work. you dont need adb or fastboot drivers, odin and samsung drivers should be enough

Find the update.zip file for sgy and zip it using cwm. Also download the update-unroot.zip file in case you need to unroot later on

Press thanks button
