- SuperSU binary v0.93 (new)
- Root Validator
- BusyBox binary v1.20.2 (new)
- New signed release key of the zip files for better compatibility on the phone models (new)

FAQ

AFTER ROOTING I SEE ONLY ROOT VALIDATOR BUT NOT THE SUPERSU APPLICATION?

As some people reported there is sometimes problem with the rooting procedure files can't be extracted properly (applications,binaries) so from today (04.08.2012) in every new update there will be an extra second alternative root zip file recognized with the letter "b" in the end of the version number. As always in life we must have a B PLAN. In this root zip file package it will be only the SuperSu application and the supersu binary, no Busybox, Rootvalidator or anything else. So if the rooting procedure from above didn't work for you then you should run again in recovery mode the universal_gb_unroot_v8.zip to delete all the half extracted files from the root procedure previously done. After that you can apply universal_gb_root_v24b.zip known as Root Only.

IMPORTANT: If for some reason after rooting with the universal_gb_root_v24b.zip want to install Busybox then when you open the application it will give you a location to install busybox to /system/bin (this is for the reason becouse there is no busybox binary in this root zip file) you just need to simply relocate the installation to /system/xbin (to relocate the path simply press on the text /system/bin it will open a new window and change it to /system/xbin) . This is for a reason becouse in the future you might want to remove busybox and many times happend that it can't be uninstalled properly leaving all the applets in bin folder mixing the files with the system files from your Android OS. Then you need to install root explorer and delete all the applets manualy and trust me is a painful job. So the problem it will be solved very quickly by installing in /system/xbin. if you don't like it to have anymore later just use the procedure for unroot (READ: HOW CAN I UNROOT MY PHONE?) universal_gb_unroot_v8.zip it will delete all the remaining stuff from busybox in /system/xbin and use again the universal_gb_root_v24b.zip to root.

THERE IS NO SU BINARY AFTER ROOT?

From today (02.04.2012) I can proudly present the third update zip universal_gb_c.c.b.s.f_v7.zip. C.C.B.S.F stand for "Cleanup Carrier Branded System Files" What makes this package very interesting is allowing you to cleanup your System files (applications) from your branded carrier provider such as Shops, Music, Web Launchers, Widgets...Games: Tetris,Sims3 etc ...making free space in the system partition ROM (not internal memory) so later the root installation can take place and have a sucessfully rooted phone. This package will clean up most of the carrier providers like:

What's new in this version:

IMPORTANT: The universal_gb_c.c.b.s.f_v7.zip can be applyed in recovery like the rest of the zip files for root and unroot. It will delete all Carrier Branded System Files (Applications) without to interfere with the system files of Samsung Stock ROM's all functions will work normaly only the applications from the carrier branded apps will be deleted. In order to bring them back you need to unroot your phone and make a Factory Reset and all will be back as usual. This zip file should be only applyed if you have Carrier Provider Phone (like the above list already mentioned) and can't root the phone becouse of the carrier apps making a full capacity of the Android OS (system partition).

I HAVE TRY ALL THE ABOVE METHODS NOTHING IS WORKING?
Chapter I
-Removing Quickoffice-

Well some Stock Firmwares have been made that in the system partition you can not even copy via recovery a single file. So my task search begin and finaly I found the bug to solve the problem. In many Stock Firmwares they put Quickoffice application, this stock firmwares in some cases are very problematic to make root on them. So finaly here is the solution and very simple to make a free space for rooting. Apply in recovery the universal_gb_remove_quickoffice.zip and then you can use the universal_gb_root_v24b.zip to finaly root your phone. So Quickoffice will be deleted from your system partition but you can always install the Quickoffice.apk whenever you want and it will be installed on your SD card (you can have the rooted phone and using again the Quickoffice). If for some reason you need to take your phone to the samsung service center problem with hardware,software or anything like that you can reverse the process to install Quickoffice back to the system partition (if you have installed the Quickoffice.apk uninstall it first from the Task Maneger)using first the universal_gb_unroot_v8.zip to unroot and after that use the universal_gb_install_quickoffice.zip to install Qucikoffice back to your system partition and all will be back as normal.

Download link to install Quickoffice back on your system partition (by StoneBoyTony): universal_gb_install_quickoffice.zip

Chapter II
-Removing Thinkfree Office-

Same as Chapter I in many Stock Firmwares we find the application Thinkfree Office, this stock firmwares in some cases are very problematic to make root on them. The solution is very simple we just need to make a free space for rooting in your system partition and remove Thinkfree Office. Apply in recovery the universal_gb_remove_thinkfreeoffice.zip and then you can use the universal_gb_root_v24b.zip to finaly root your phone. Thinkfree Office will be deleted from your system partition but you can always install the ThinkfreeOffice.apk whenever you want and it will be installed in your internal memory (you can have the rooted phone and using again the Thinkfree Office). If for some reason you need to take your phone to the samsung service center problem with hardware,software or anything like that you can reverse the process to install Thinkfree Office back to the system partition (if you have installed the ThinkfreeOffice.apk uninstall it first from the Task Maneger) using first the universal_gb_unroot_v8.zip to unroot and after that use the universal_gb_install_thinkfreeoffice.zip to install Thinkfree Office back to your system partition and all will be back as normal.

HOW CAN I REMOVE ROOT VALIDATOR I DON'T NEED IT ANYMORE?

- You need to open SuperSu application and under "Apps" press the icon or the text for RootValidator. A new window will open and press "Forget". Power off your phone and enter in recovery mode to apply universal_gb_remove_validator_v3.zip file.

Download link for Remover of RootValidator (by StoneBoyTony) : universal_gb_remove_validator_v3.zip

HOW CAN I UNROOT MY PHONE?

- First thing you need to remove all the applications that they are depended from root, after that open SuperSU -> Settings -> Full Unroot and press Continue. Your phone will reboot once and after that enter Recovery mode and use the universal_gb_unroot_v8.zip to delete all the traces remaining. If you were having Superuser app (the older one) just get in the Recovery mode and then apply the universal_gb_unroot_v8.zip

You can download the UNROOT (by StoneBoyTony) from here: universal_gb_unroot_v8.zip

What's new in this version:
- Deleting all traces of Superuser
- Deleting all traces of Suhax
- Deleting all traces of Busybox and Busyboxpro (and all applets created in xbin that they are symlinked causing sometimes Busybox to fail of uninstalling them so that problem is solved i add them all to be deleted and for the leatest version 1.20.2. )
- Deleting all traces of Superoneclick
- Deleting all traces of SuperSU and SuperSU Pro
- Deleting Root Validator
- New signed release key of the zip files for better compatibility on the phone models (new)

*NOTE* - FOR ALREADY ROOTED PHONES WITH SUPERUSER

For those who already have root with Superuser or any other kind of root method and want to update your root with the new SuperSU package you need first uninstall all app that they are depended from root then apply in recovery mode the universal_gb_unroot_v8.zip and enter again in recovery mode to apply the universal_gb_root_v24.zip or you can use Only Root universal_gb_root_v24b.zip .

This is how it looks rooted phone you will have application SuperSU

Hi,

Just downloaded V14 and whilst it says it is rooted and superuser app is loaded, i do not believe the phone is rooted.
Is there a definitive and SIMPLE way i can test
to see if it is actually rooted and that the software i am trying to use is incorrect ??

OR maybe, i dont have the latest V14....

Can i get a link to the latest V14 ??

install root apps like root explorer, titanium backup or freespace.. if these apps prompt you to allow or deny SU access, choose allow.. if you're phone is rooted, SuperUser app will display that these apps were granted superuser permissions.. simple..

Hi,
I want to root my phone, a Galaxy Mini, but before I do that I have some noob questions, because I don't want to do something stupid...

1. This should work on android 2.3.6 S5570XWKT2, right?

and...
2. Is there any risk that this can brick my phone?

Thanks!

    FAQ

    AFTER ROOTING I SEE ONLY ROOT VALIDATOR BUT NOT THE SUPERSU APPLICATION?

    As some people reported there is sometimes problem with the rooting procedure files can't be extracted properly (applications,binaries) so from today (04.08.2012) in every new update there will be an extra second alternative root zip file recognized with the letter "b" in the end of the version number. As always in life we must have a B PLAN. In this root zip file package it will be only the SuperSu application and the supersu binary, no Busybox, Rootvalidator or anything else. So if the rooting procedure from above didn't work for you then you should run again in recovery mode the universal_gb_unroot_v8.zip to delete all the half extracted files from the root procedure previously done. After that you can apply universal_gb_root_v24b.zip known as Root Only.

    IMPORTANT: If for some reason after rooting with the universal_gb_root_v24b.zip want to install Busybox then when you open the application it will give you a location to install busybox to /system/bin (this is for the reason becouse there is no busybox binary in this root zip file) you just need to simply relocate the installation to /system/xbin (to relocate the path simply press on the text /system/bin it will open a new window and change it to /system/xbin) . This is for a reason becouse in the future you might want to remove busybox and many times happend that it can't be uninstalled properly leaving all the applets in bin folder mixing the files with the system files from your Android OS. Then you need to install root explorer and delete all the applets manualy and trust me is a painful job. So the problem it will be solved very quickly by installing in /system/xbin. if you don't like it to have anymore later just use the procedure for unroot (READ: HOW CAN I UNROOT MY PHONE?) universal_gb_unroot_v8.zip it will delete all the remaining stuff from busybox in /system/xbin and use again the universal_gb_root_v24b.zip to root.

This package will clean up most of the carrier providers like:

    IMPORTANT: The universal_gb_c.c.b.s.f_v7.zip can be applyed in recovery like the rest of the zip files for root and unroot. It will delete all Carrier Branded System Files (Applications) without to interfere with the system files of Samsung Stock ROM's all functions will work normaly only the applications from the carrier branded apps will be deleted. In order to bring them back you need to unroot your phone and make a Factory Reset and all will be back as usual. This zip file should be only applyed if you have Carrier Provider Phone (like the above list already mentioned) and can't root the phone becouse of the carrier apps making a full capacity of the Android OS (system partition).

    I HAVE TRY ALL THE ABOVE METHODS NOTHING IS WORKING?
    Chapter I
    -Removing Quickoffice-

    Well some Stock Firmwares have been made that in the system partition you can not even copy via recovery a single file. So my task search begin and finaly I found the bug to solve the problem. In many Stock Firmwares they put Quickoffice application, this stock firmwares in some cases are very problematic to make root on them. So finaly here is the solution and very simple to make a free space for rooting. Apply in recovery the universal_gb_remove_quickoffice.zip and then you can use the universal_gb_root_v24b.zip to finaly root your phone. So Quickoffice will be deleted from your system partition but you can always install the Quickoffice.apk whenever you want and it will be installed on your SD card (you can have the rooted phone and using again the Quickoffice). If for some reason you need to take your phone to the samsung service center problem with hardware,software or anything like that you can reverse the process to install Quickoffice back to the system partition (if you have installed the Quickoffice.apk uninstall it first from the Task Maneger)using first the universal_gb_unroot_v8.zip to unroot and after that use the universal_gb_install_quickoffice.zip to install Qucikoffice back to your system partition and all will be back as normal.

Apply in recovery the universal_gb_remove_thinkfreeoffice.zip and then you can use the universal_gb_root_v24b.zip to finaly root your phone. Thinkfree Office will be deleted from your system partition but you can always install the ThinkfreeOffice.apk whenever you want and it will be installed in your internal memory (you can have the rooted phone and using again the Thinkfree Office).

    Hi,

    Certainly doesnt work on a Samsung galaxy ace S5830T on 2.3.4 and GINGERBREAD.DVKQ3.

    anyone know what i can root this phone with ??

    I tried everything on the web ..no luck.

    Redownload v14 now is fixed problem was that I forgot to put the script it in Unix Format...see if you have any luck now ;)
    1
    would be great of we could get a new version cut (V15 ??) with Thor's recommendations as well....
    I am nearly at wits end with this S5830T rooting issue.
    :confused:

    Sry oldernerd but GT-S5830T have some kind of security protection and not allowing to copy anything from the root binarys. This is common problem even and for the GSM-Forum for unlocking, If some new information come out you will be informed untill then I must removed from the tuorial.

    Small bug in the package for unroot, i've download and tried this package and works but i've also see the scripts for delete the root and not there the script for delete the data file of superuser in the dalvik cache ([email protected]@[email protected]) and if not delete this file keep in the dalvik cache and is impossible delete after the unroot, only the hard reset delete this file after the unroot, then please fix also this small bug.

    Unroot method now is updated no need to wipe cache partition or any kind of factory reset now unroot method is complete ;)

    Please redownload everybody the universal_gb_unroot.zip it is updated now even if it is downloaded from the mediafire links or from the attached files it is the same :)
