Now please help which odin version should I use in order to root my phone. 2nd thing do I need to flash custom kernel before I flash JB custom rom? and 1 more thing sir, I could not find Clockworkmode anywhere through which I can take a backup of my device first if anything goes wrong in whole process. So, Please tell me as earlier I was using S5360, S6802 model in which I have rooted the phone in no time just flashed 1 update.zip file & done. But this time for this phone I am confused by reading lots theareds and different posts and have downloaded many files and tried to do but everytime I failed to root my phone. you can give me ans in few words i will try to understand. Currently I am using 16 GB model S advance i9070 firmware DDLK2. What should first step to root the device? what should 2nd step for new rom installation I mean by need to flash kernel first or just go to recovery mode & flash the zip file which contain rom? and last Clockworkmode recovery.
Thanks in advance.

Huh, where to start.

Thing about this is that you flash your fimware from this thread. All of those are with root. And you probably do not have your version, because it is updated, and this projec ti abandoned when we got JB. So what do you want? Rooted GB, or Rooted JB? If you want rooted JB use this: 1. Install JB, 2. Root it. You do not need rooted GB for that.

If you want to root GB do this. For kernel in step 10. read my post.

For Clockworkmode recovery you need to install some of custom kernels, because CWM and kernel is on the same partition in this phone. Any of JB custom kernels have it. And on GB we have TWRP, no CWM.

If you have any further qestions, ask.

P.S. JB root method do not increase binary counter. It is the same as on your previuos phone.

First of all thanks a lot for the prompt reply. I done it. I installed JB. Base band version I9070XXLPZ . Kernel version is 3.0.31-660490 [email protected] #2 SMP PREEMPT Sat Dec 22 15:11:36 KST 2012. Build Number JZO54K.I9070XXLPZ.

Now the thing is it has increased the ram to may 100 MB+. But the phone has become slow in responding. The buttersmoothness is not there. I run Temple run 2 to see its performance but it lags. The bettery was drain after use of 7 hours normal usage. So, I want to know If you have done something for this problem. I have rooted the phone. Please suggest something for the best performance in terms of speed of the phone and battery performance.

Thanks

It will work if you follow the exact steps. Just do not unplug the phone until you see the message "Pass" on screen.
And use the latest version. And sorry I told you I have 3.07, I have 1.87.

In PDA you put unpacked. It should be in .*tar.md5 extension (this: I9070DDLK2_I9070ODDLJ1_HOME.tar.md5). Do not unpack it more. One step before this what you got.

You can do factory reset after, but if everything works fine you do not have to.
