Hi guys,

Rooting this device is just unfairly easy. What you have to do is download the update.zip for the galaxy pocket (see below) and place it into the root of you phone (I think thats somewhere at /mnt/sdcard (at my phone atleast)). Then put off your phone and boot into recovery mode (VOLUME UP+HOME+POWER). Click apply update from sdcard (navigate with volume, select with home button) and at the top there should be the update.zip . Just select it , press home and wait a little while. Press reboot and BOOOOOM youre rooted. You can check this by searching for the app Superuser between your installed apps.

(download update.zip: http://www.mediafire.com/?oh8h3aob7mja9mk )

Hit thanks rather than typing it

With this method, do you still need to put the device into usb debugging mode before you power down, and reboot into download mode?

Good day guys.

I need help in rooting this phone.
I've been trying to do that three-button combo to get in to recovery, but every time I do, the phone just boots straight to Android.

Is there any other way to get to the recovery menu?
By the way, the Vol_Down button is damaged, it cannot be used.

After rooting phone vibrates randomly (one 1 sec vibration followed by 2 shorter vibrations). Any ideas how to solve this problem?
