Angry Root your Galaxy Star
WHAT IS ANDROID ROOTING?
Android rooting is the process of allowing users of smartphones, tablets, and other devices running the Android mobile operating system to attain privileged control (known as "root access") within Android's sub-system.

Rooting is often performed with the goal of overcoming limitations that carriers and hardware manufacturers put on some devices, resulting in the ability to alter or replace system applications and settings, run specialized apps that require administrator-level permissions, or perform other operations that are otherwise inaccessible to a normal Android user. On Android, rooting can also facilitate the complete removal and replacement of the device's operating system, usually with a more recent release of its current operating system.


HOW TO ROOT YOUR SAMSUNG GALAXY STAR S5282 OR S5280
Well, there are several methods to root this device, choose which seems to be comfortable for you

METHOD 1

ii) Enable USB debugging in device.
iii) Now,choose puch supersu su binary to /system/xbin
iv) Click on push, and voila your device is rooted.

WHAT IS CWM RECOVERY
ClockworkMod Recovery
ClockworkMod Recovery (CWM) is a replacement recovery option for Android devices, made by Koushik "Koush" Dutta. It is based on the Android 2.1 (Eclair) recovery image. Features include Nandroid backup, adb shell, advanced update.zip options (ignore asserts and signature checks), and file browser for choosing update.zips
The Rom Manager app may be used for installing CWM, overwriting the device's stock recovery. As with the stock recovery, CWM can apply software changes to the device. Unlike the stock recovery, CWM is able to entirely replace the device's primary Android operating system ("flashing a new ROM"), including with aftermarket replacements such as CyanogenMod. Once installed, CWM it is accessed by turning your phone off, then triggering the bootloader prompt by holding down some device-dependent button combination as it is turned on.
CWM is also known as clockwork and CW recovery.


PROCEDURE -
1. Install USB drivers from here
2. Download ODIN v3.07 from here
3. Download and extract the ClockworkMod tar file from HERE
4. Boot phone into ODIN mode. Forget? ( Press Volume Down + Home Key + Power key simultanaeously)
5. Connect your device to your PC via USB
6. Flash the tar file using ODIN v3.07


Enjoy!

Note - In some of the devices key combo doesnt work so you can fix it easily from here

WHAT IS CUSTOM ROM?
A custom ROM is one that has undergone any modification from being a pure distribution of Android. Google make the Android source code available for anyone to play around with, and people take this code and alter it for themselves. Whether to add features they come up with, or to redistribute it with fun tweaks and additions. So a custom ROM can range in definition from some custom code modifications to make Android run better on a device, all the way to changing the homescreen, background services, and default software.

GENERAL PROCEDURE FOR FLASHING ANY ROM ON S5282
i) Put rom zip in extsd (Memory Card)
ii) Boot To recovery using key combination(Volume UP+ Home + Power), adb or thru some app.
iii) Do Factory reset, wipe cache, wipe dalvik cache
iv) Flash rom by choosing option of Install zip from sd card and then select ROM zip file.
v) Now, Flash any other fix.zip file which is given by ROM dev.
vi) Now, Select Reboot System now


Enjoy the ROM!

WHAT IS STOCK FIRMWARE
This is the operating system in its default form, without any modifications made to it except for any device-specific support required to run it on the particular device. Truly stock firmware provides the standard user experience of the operating system without any cosmetic or functional changes made. These days, truly stock firmware is primarily found in cases where both the device and the operating system is built by the same company. Amongst modern mobile devices, examples of truly stock firmware can be found on Apple’s iOS devices, Palm’s WebOS devices and some Android devices shipped without any modifications made to the operating system by their manufacturers.

PROCEDURE
i) Download stock firmware from here & EXTRACT IT
ii) Download Odin 3.07 from here
iii) Then connect your mobile to PC in download mode(Volume UP + Home + Power)
iv) Press Volume UP
v) Open Odin 3.07 and the box will turn blue after you connect your device.
vi) Click on PDA and select the .tar file of stock rom
vii) Click Start
viii) Your phone would be restarted automatically.

Congrats! You are on stock

@Niku-Droid nice idea..
and here's some suggestions.. hope you don't mid

* revert the font size of the disclamier/warning and the other texts.. the warning is in smallest text and other text are way too big.. it's good to use red for warning.. also, yellow texts on white aren't easily readable.. just stick to black, blue, red and maybe one/two other colors..

* while users shoul be allowed to choose whatever rooting method they use, also provide a recomended method to which is easy and convenient
in our case, cwm method.. cydia won't work on newer firmwares. so on cydia and pre rooted firmwares, they will have do download and flash 450+mb of file with odin.. whilst they can download 9mb of cwm just to get root..

* the dl link of cwm recovery you have provided is old one.. it wipes whole, /data partion when wiping data, so all the internal memory is lost.. the updated recovery also, allows installing zip files from internal memory... please suggest to use this updated, cwm recovery instead of the old one.. [Updated Recovery] CWM 6.0.3.7 for GT-S5282 and GT-S5280

* some of these phone have problem of not being able to boot into recovery with ( Volume Down + Home Key + Power key).. it would be good to point them to this thread, [GT-S5282] Fix Recovery Key Combo Problem for Galaxy Star Duos
