I got this phone as a gift just recently and I have found it to be a very good device for a great price, but at times, I feel like it can go even more to hiigher potentials if it can be rooted. Since it's a new phone, there are no tutorials for it on the internet. The phone runs Android 4.1.2 stock w/ TouchWiz.

I'll be ready to give any information possible to help in the rooting of this device. I would love it if some of the developers here could make this happen, I'd be the happiest Android user in the world! :)

Just tested this and happy to report that it works perfectly! Here's how it went.

First, go to http://www.sammobile.com/firmwares/ and search for s7262, download the kernel for YOUR COUNTRY and flash it as PDA through Odin.

Make sure you have copied the superuser.zip to your SDcard before you begin the following.

- Flash the recovery as PDA (I unchecked the autoboot, just to keep everything in control)
- Remove data cable
- Remove battery
- Go in download again, and flash the BOOT file as BOOTLOADER (This time, checked the autoboot)
- Phone starts in CWM recovery
- Flash the SU and hit the thanks button!

I am not using CWM to flash update.zip
I am show u alternate way with adb sideload​


FOLLOW THE STEP


step 1:switch off your phone

step 2:press upvolume+homebutton+powerbutton

step 3:press 3 key combination for 3 sec

step 4:then u go into stock recovery mode

step 5:select update from adb

step 6:connect your mobile cable

(make sure u install adb,usb driver of your android phone on PC)
(make sure u enable the debugging mode)

step 7:eek:pen command

step 8:copy update.zip on your desktop

step 9:eek:nce you have done these things from ADB issue the following command:



adb sideload <path/to/update.zip>
Example:adb sideload c:\update.zip


Where path/to/update.zip is the location on your computer that the update file is stored at and update.zip is the name of the file. An example using adb to sideload an update:


adb sideload JDQ39.zip

After you enter the sideload command the file should transfer to your device and once it is done transferring it will begin the update process. Once it has completed the update process, reboot your device.

:cowboy:U r Rooted your Phone!!!!!!!:cowboy:



Download file ATTACH]2879514[/ATTACH] Dont' forgot to thanks me

i followed exact sequence, installed samsung usb drivers and adb fastboot essentials. but still it fails to verify the package in recovery "select update from adb" section when i use adb sideload C:\update.zip. i kept file in direct C drive. adb fastboot command on computer says sideload 100%, but mobile fails to verify it and installation gets aborted. what to do?. can you please help?

Dude I managed upto rooting with your method. I tried doing the part with build.prop but i still get a white screen in recovery.

However the recovery is done like this:

I first place a single zip file that i intend to flash in root of sd card. then reboot into recovery

1. press volume down
2. press power twice
3. Press volume up twice
5. Press power
6. Press volume down 7 times
7. Press power
8. Wait a minute and press back button a few times and press power button to reboot.

This trick actually worked....

    CWM For Star pro duos

    http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?p=48006606#post48006606

    Flash via Odin...
    For rooting flash superuser.zip via CWM.

    Even after flashing cwm via odin, stock recovery may boot due to security by Samsung...This happened to me initially, but after experimenting various things which i don't remember it worked...Do let me know if it works for u all...

    Rooting Unsuccessful tried almost every method available

    Dear Fellows,

    Disclaimer: I'm very new (5 days old :)) to Android Development, Rooting and Custom ROM installation and some things which are obvious for others, are New n Unknown to me.

    I bought this device Samsung Galaxy S-GT7262 (Actually fell for the marketing gimmick of Samsung as Galaxy Series).
    Here comes the Tricked part, This phone comes with Spreadtrum SC6820 1 GHz processor powering all chinese phones.( To figure this out took me 2 sleepless nights).

    I tried all methods prescribed in google search and xda forum to Root: (the worst part is reading others saying it worked like a charm for them not in my case :crying:)
    1. Cydia Impactor
    2. Unlockroot
    3. Motochopper
    4, Rootmaster
    5.Vroot
    6.Kingo Andro Root
    7.Galaxy Victory root by niemasd
    8. Even galaxy s duos rooting kit (but found the kernel is different)
    9. Z4Root
    10. Odin flash CWM recovery image from http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2165554 (random SC6820 kernel with cwm in it)
    11. Above mentioned universal root as well

    Trust me I have forgotten others :p

    Method untried:
    Spreadtrum Debug tool "ResearchDownload" (Reason: I dont want to end up with a bricked phone and too complex)

    Lessons Learnt:
    Samsung has shipped this phone with this "KERNEL-INS-S7262XXUAMJ3-1381823311.tar", which has patch for all security vulnerability defined in X-ray that why rooting didnt work. ( I Guess)

    My state:
    I have run around all through internet like a lunatic and hasnt slept for 5 days properly ended up with my head banging against wall.
    Over all very nice experience in learning Android. I am going to sell this device if no help available.

    Phone state:
    Phone has lost its stock recovery mode(Volume Up+Power Buttons which used to work earlier). It boots only into downloading mode (Vol Dwn+Home+Power Buttons).
    Other Functions working normally I guess

    Request:
    Can some one help in rooting this phone.
    Or Can some one direct me in making a root and Custom recovery and Custom ROM for this phone.:confused:

    Thanks to all the developers in the above mentioned list and numerous tutorials for all phones written for noobs (like me)

    Successfully Rooted Samsung galaxy pro duos GT-S7262

    Hello All,

    Disclaimer: Don't Blame me if anything undesirable happens to phone, Go to mirror and point at yourself :)

    Tools Required : Windows Xp/7, Odin v3.07, adb commands essentials

    I have managed to successfully root the Samsung GT-S7262 device.
    This is split into two sections
    1. unlocking your kernel
    2. Pushing the superuser into the system and allowing apps in the mobile
    Stage-1
    Please use odin (Select PDA) and flash the attached boot.tar.md5 in the fastboot mode. (unzip the file to a desired location)
    Check point-1
    After flashing successfully, please connect the phone via usb and run
    Code:
    adb getprops
    command.
    You should see something like ro.secure=0 (if so then your kernel is unlocked)
    Check point-2
    connect via usb cable in the command prompt
    type following commands one after other
    Code:
    adb shell
    [email protected]:/ $ /sbin/rootsh +p
    [email protected]:/ #
    If you see the # symbol then you are rooted.

    Stage-2 Pushing the Super user access.
    Download the 3.1.3 version of chainsDD's superuser file and extract (su and Superuser.apk) in the c:\android (where the adb commands are in ur pc) from (http://androidsu.com/superuser/)
    run the following commands on after another
    Code:
    c:\>adb shell
    [email protected]:/ $ /sbin/rootsh +p
    [email protected]:/ #
    [email protected]:/ # mount -ro remount,rw /system
    [email protected]:/ # exit
    [email protected]oid:/ $ exit

    Now change to following folder where adb tools and extract is present.
    Code:
    c:\> cd c:\android
    c:\android>adb push su /system/bin
    c:\android>adb push Superuser.apk /system/app

    Now we need to change the ownership and group for the su and superuser
    type following commands one after other
    Code:
    adb shell
    [email protected]:/ $ /sbin/rootsh +p
    [email protected]:/ #
    [email protected]:/ # mount -ro remount,rw /system
    [email protected]:/ # chmod 06755 /system/bin/su
    [email protected]:/ # chmod 0644 /system/app/Superuser.apk
    [email protected]:/ # chown 0:0 /system/bin/su
    [email protected]:/ # chown 0:0 /system/app/Superuser.apk
    [email protected]:/ # exit
    [email protected]:/ $ exit
    c:\> adb reboot

    Now after your phone reboots it should be rooted. Tested with my device 100% working.
