DISCLAIMER:


I'm NOT responsible for any damage you cause to your phone.
Be sure to follow the steps correctly.



REQUIREMENTS:
  • Windows

  • Samsung KIES and all drivers installed.

  • ODIN for flashing the firmware.



HOW TO ROOT:
  1. Download the Pre-Rooted firmware that matches the firmware your using.


  2. Extract the RAR file, you will end up with a folder with two files in it.
    SYSTEM_YOURFIRMWARE.tar.md5 and CSC_YOURFIRMWARE.tar.md5


  3. Close any KIES application that might be open.


  4. Open ODIN.


  5. Select the file SYSTEM_YOURFIRMWARE.tar.md5 as PDA.


  6. Select the file CSC_YOURFIRMWARE.tar.md5 as CSC.


  7. Verify that ONLY "AUTO REBOOT" and "F. RESET TIME" are selected.
    Do NOT select "Repartition"


  8. Boot your phone in "DOWNLOAD MODE" by holding POWER + HOME + VOL. DOWN


  9. Plug your phone usb cable to your computer.
    If you've never connected your phone to your computer in download mode you'll have to wait for it to install the drivers


  10. Click the "START" button and wait for it to finish.
    Do NOT unplug the usb cable before ODIN finishes its job.


    If you did everything correctly, after a few minutes, ODIN will show the message "PASS"
    Then you can remove the usb cable.
    Your device will reboot in Recovery Mode and will finish the installation.
    When it finishes, it will reboot and start the Android System.



  11. Now, go to the "Google Play Store" and Install the app "Super SU" (or "Superuser").





That's it! :good:
Now, enjoy your rooted Galaxy S Advance! :cool:
You can go back to Download Mode to check that your Binary Counter hasn't increased.

Request for DXLD1....
Thanks...;)

Sent from my GT-I9070 using xda premium

could you especify the firmware region? there are 8 DXLD1 firmwares.
http://samsung-updates.com/device/?id=GT-I9070


I believe this will work for the GT-i9070P....you just added the su binary and Superuser.apk into the .tar right ? I wanna do it for the GT-i9070P ;)

superuser.apk can be installed from google play store.
I could add i9070P to the list later.
but I'm uploading the ones I already made for I9070

If you need another firmware,
make a request and I'll root it when I have some time

Can you please tell the method of how to do it?
Just push the su binary in the zip and flash?

Could you root: I9070VSLD I9070TFGLD1?

I forgot to ask: this includes TWRP recovery, doesn't it?

yep. but I need some time to download, root and then upload it,
and there's already a few firmwares on the list.

this doesnt include twrp recovery.
you can flash TWRP after rooting you phone by using the DD method.
your counter wont increase unless you flash a kernel via odin ( my TWRP Kernel, CoCore Kernel or any other kernel )

It's on the first post.
This is meant to be flashed over your Stock ROM using odin.

I wanna help you do it for the i9070P :)

Sent from my GT-I9070P using xda app-developers app

You'll need a machine running linux.
Then all you need to do is convert the system ext4 sparse image using ext4utils
mount it, copy the su binary to it and repack it using tar, but remember to verify everything using md5sum


OFF: How can i check the binary counter btw?

reboot in download mode

Thanks, i'll wait as much as you need.

Regarding the DD method:

3. Start adb shell (do you mean terminal emulator?)

4. Do the following commands:
Code:
$ su
# dd if=/sdcard/kernel.bin.md5 of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p15
# reboot

5. Wait for the device to reboot.

adb shell is the command line tool that you use to execute commands on any android device. ( it runs on windows/mac/linux )
but yes.. you can do that with terminal emulator app


Not that.

another user asked this and I answered him a few posts back.
