This guide is for rooting the Galaxy Ace Plus GT-S7500


Please follow these instructions carefully:
  1. Download and unzip Odin3.zip package.
  2. Download the ROOT.tar file.
  3. Put the phone into download mode(volume down+home+power on) and connect to the PC.
  4. Open Odin and flash the ROOT.tar file as PDA.Wait for the phone to reboot.
  5. Now root using DooMLoRD's Easy Rooting Toolkit available from here


Enjoy full access to your rooted phone :D

Hey!

What does ROOT.tar includes? Can this be used on other samsung phones?

i think i know...maybe qzem is trying to get it work on Galaxy S Advance...

logically, it should not work, since the ROOT.tar is built based on Galaxy Ace Plus's own boot.img... however, i am very interested to know how do you manage to modify the boot.img to allow access to DooMLoRD's Easy Rooting Toolkit for rooting purposes... that might help cos i'm actually has started researching rooting methods for Samsung new phones, since i planned to buy Galaxy S Advance as well.. :D:D:D

You are right, man I am searching and trying every way to root Galaxy S I9070 Advace :D. Ben even unpacking and repacking system.img.d5, but with no success. Problem is I don't have enaugh knowlage in this, and I don't use linux, everything I did so far was in windows in Cygwin and on the phone it self when the shell was needed. Maybe we could put our heads together and figure this thing out :)! You can PM, if you have any good ideas. I was playing with a thought of installing linux vitualy, and make some enviroment for compiling this android stuff. I have some knowlage about computers since I am computer engineer, but i work as system administrator in windows based environment.

Cheers

Well the steps are very easy & it should work on any android phone not just samsung phones.
First unpack the stock boot.img of your device.
Then open the default.prop file and set
ro.secure=0
ro.debuggable=1
persist.service.adb.enable=1
and save the file.
Now repack the boot image and tar it.
Then you can flash it via Odin
The changes give us root access to adb shell and we can push the su binary and Superuser.apk via adb.
But if you are lazy:) then run any of the available rooting tools which copy the necessary files via adb(eg Doomlord's toolkit)

whoa...quite simple...thanks bro...but i seemed to read somewhere that everytime our phone reboots, especially for Samsung phones, it will read everything back from the boot.img, so as this exploit is quite simple, will the root stick? sorry for the crudeness of the question...im quite a noob in android development as well..haha...

If using a root browser such as root explorer i make any changes to the files in the boot partition such as init.rc or default.prop then the changes will not persist after a reboot as the phone reads everything back from the original boot.img.

But if we change the the original boot.img(that is what we are doing here) and flash it then the changes will persist.

i see...thanks for the explanation...good job with the root guide for Ace Plus...

To qzem, yeah...im quite as much noob as most of the users here in xda...but maybe we have to do this in a Linux environment, cos i read somewhere for ROM making, its quite difficult to use Windows... now for me, rooting our Galaxy S Advance is quite probable, just that learning how to use Ubuntu just for making these exploits is quite unnerving... there are quite thorough guide for unpacking and repacking those .img files, but you have to be familiar with Linux...

How to unpack and repack boot.img? Is there any useful guide here. Can I pull boot.img straight from my phone or can I extract it from firmware (.tar file) on my pc, and how? Or do I need kernel source code, to compile insecure kernel? Thanks for your help!

now i have definitely run into some confusion here...your guide in remaking the boot.img is very clear, but the problem now is that i can't figure out where is boot.img located in Galaxy S Advance firmwares...all i have are system.img, cache.img, hidden.img, kernel.bin and modem.bin... is it in the kernel.bin? if so, how do i extract it?

i see...how do u manage to get CWM working for Ace Plus? do we have to root 1st for flashing CWM, cos i remember that it is not necessary... what are the files we need to port CWM to other devices?
