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! :)

Dude just found this new exploit that works like miracle on my S7262XXUAND5 firmware.
U will need odin latest version 3.09
recovery image(recovery.tar.md5)
Supersu apk
In this method u edit your build.prop to patch kernel due to which white screen issue is occuring.
1. Put Supersu apk in extsdcard of ur phone
2. Boot in download(odin) mode by pressing power+vol. down+home and leave power button when samsung logo appears after that press vol. up to enter dwnld mode.
3. Connect your phone to pc via usb and open odin.. it will show added when successfully connected.
4. flash recovery file by clicking on pda and selecting recovery.tar. md5 file.
5. Press start and wait ur phone will restart and wait until pass appears on odin.
6.Shut down phone again then press Vol. up+Home+Power button leave power button when logo appears.
7. Now As kernel is not yet patched the recovery will open but white screen will appears to u but it is actually cwm recovery up and running in background
8. Now as u cant see cwm u have to write these instruction on a page which I am about to tell or save them
Press vol. down button one time
Then power button
Now u have entered in install zip from sd card menu
Now again press power button now u have to choose zip from sd card u
press volume down 2 times and then press power button
Now u have selected supersu..zip
Now press 7 times vol. down and then power button
Cwm recovery will flash the zip
Wait for a minute or so and u will have installed supersu app.
9. The hard part is over now take battery out then put back in and start phone normally.
10.When phone is booting it will display android is upgrading message at boot it means phone is rooted and su binary is installed
11. Now phone is rooted. Install root explorer and open system/build.prop
13 Remember to mount it as R/W and grant superuser access.
12. to open build.prop long press on it and choose open with Text Editor.
13. now change ro.product.model to Galaxy S4
14. ro.product.brand and ro. product.manufacturer to Samsung with Capital S it would be small then save changes and restart phone.
15. Voila kernel is patched permanently ...
16.Enjoy.

Sent from my Galaxy S4 using XDA Premium 4 mobile app


Please tell me the instruction on how to:-
1. Unroot
2. Unbrick
3. Install Cyanogenmod 12
If anybody tell this all I will root my device. OR if anybody tell me about how to install cyanogenmod 12
And plz also tell how to unbrick and unroot the device

NOTE:- i am on build J2054k.S7262XXUANJI

    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]:/ $ 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.
