How to Root Samsung Galaxy Pop/Mini GTS5570 Running Gingerbread 2.3.4 OS?

Gingerbread is another great android operating system which is capable of doing lots of interesting and useful stuffs. But, it also lacks the root permission so you don’t have full control over you device. With root access you are able to tweak it for better usability and effectiveness with the help of various applications that require root access to run. And as always, rooting galaxy mini/pop gts5570 has never been so easy.

So, if you have got Samsung galaxy mini/pop and you want to do all cool stuffs in it then you should root your device. If your galaxy mini/pop is running android 2.2/2.2.1 then please follow this link to root your device. Or if you want to upgrade your Samsung galaxy pop/mini smart phone to gingerbread 2.3.4 please go through this article first. Please remember that rooting your phone voids your warranty and if you don’t do it the correct way you might even brick your phone. Just follow the steps given below and everything will go fine.
  1. Download the zip file from here or from here.
  2. Mount you sdcard to your pc and copy the file you downloaded to the root directory of your sdcard (don’t copy inside any directory/folder). 
  3.  Unmount your sdcard from your computer and reboot your Samsung smart phone in recovery (Press Home + Power Button).
  4. Select ‘Apply update form sdcard’ or similar option and choose the file you copied earlier to your sdcard (Use volume keys to navigate and home key to confirm selection). 
  5.  Reboot your device. (If your device doesn’t boot after applying update.zip file try wiping cache and data in the recovery menu).
Congratulations! You have rooted your Samsung galaxy mini/pop gts5570 successfully. Enjoy the full power of android OS. If you are wondering what to do next, read this article to find out best application for your rooted device. I’ve tested this method of rooting in my galaxy pop/mini gts5570 and it works fine but this process might even work on other smart phones running gingerbread. If you happen to know any of such devices please share with us in comments.

  3. @yagya,
    Thanks
    I need to know the difference, features, merit and demerits between froyo, gingerbird, cynongen Mod.
    Can you make a post regarding this?

    ReplyDelete
  4. Froyo and gingerbread are basically same and you can notice the changes from outside but the bugs are fixed and security features are upgraded in the later one giving you better performance. Cyanogenmod is based in gb 2.3.5 and it looks quite different that other.. To find out merits and demerits it is better to try yourself cause same thing can be a demerit to one but merit to another.. Sorry, but can't post in the next weeks have to get prepared for my exams but in future i might do that...

  5. Yagya,

  6. @Yagya,
    I have done the root.
    I would i confirm that my phone is rooted?

    ReplyDelete
  7. @Nachi My full Name is Yagya Gaire.
    If you want to test if you phone is rooted or not search for superuser app on your phone or alternatively search for 'root' on your market and you will get many apps that need root to run. Install one and if it asks for superuser permission allow it and run it. It will be proved that you have rooted your phone if the app shows superuser request and work well...

  8. I am going to try this now. I have 1 question, how can I unroot my gingerbread once I have rooted it??

    ReplyDelete
  9. Pra, to unroot your phone you can simply flash the stock gingerbread firmware (like as you did while upgrading from froyo...)

  10. Hi,

    I have update my phone to the new gingerbread but now i cant root it. It says at the recoverymode that it cant open the zip file.... and i have done it several times over. What are my options because if i want to try to open a .tar file for the new cm7mod it doesnt even let me see the .tar file....
    How can i fix this?
    Thanks you so much for you answer!

    ReplyDelete
  11. Try SUper One Click latest version... It can root gingerbread devices too with the help of gingerbreak... You can only falsh zip files in recovery not the tar file. THey are flashed using Odin.

    ReplyDelete
  12. i think this method doesnt work with clockworkmod installed in galaxy mini gingerbread.. T_T
    it always say that installation aborted cmon... help yagya

    ReplyDelete
  13. it also says that
    E:Can't open /sdcard/update.zip
    (No such file or directory)

    then it comes...

    Installation aborted.

    i already copied the update file to my sd root... but why??? help plsss :(

    ReplyDelete
  14. Hello, Rain. Either you rename the zip file to update.zip OR instead (recommended) in CWM recovery select these options one after other and choose the file you copied to sd card. Go to Install Zip from sd>>Choose Zip from sd>> Select the zip file you copied earlier.

    ReplyDelete
  15. I don't know if it's me but upd_1.zip link does not work, it opens then when I click on download I am taken to 500 - Internal server error page. I found a copy in mediafire but wanted to confirm if it is the same file - http://www.mediafire.com/?f8jzvi7f6s29xjd


    Thanks in advance :)

  16. Oh never mind I got confused XD I didn't read "or" anyway. I shall try this :) Hope it works.

  17. i m unable to root my galaxy mini. it says aborted

    ReplyDelete
  18. Please, try again and follow the steps carefully. Also, if you are trying it in Clockwork mod recovery then i suggest you use the system's recovery or upgrade to cm7 which comes pre-rooted --I'm fairly having an idea that it doesn't work with CWM recovery, but not so sure. Also, read the comments above and follow the links at the article above to find out more.

    ReplyDelete
  19. mine is same problem like rain. *
    E:Can't open /sdcard/update.zip
    (No such file or directory)

    then it comes...

    Installation aborted.

    i already copied the update file to my sd root... with not any change. i also tried z4root nd super one click. its not happening. is it necessery to instal rom manager before doing root?

    ReplyDelete
  20. You are selecting the wrong option in recovery. Don't choose apply update.zip option --for this you will have to rename the upd_1.zip (or whatever it is) to update.zip.

    Choose these options instead: Install zip from sd-card>>Choose Zip from sdcard>> Select the zip file you copied (use home to select).

    ReplyDelete
  21. i did same as u said.
    Choose these options instead: Install zip from sd-card>>Choose Zip from sdcard>> Select . but again it saying installition aborted. then i try root with super one click v2.1.1 it says root #6 gingerbreak not found FAILED.

    Or, if you are not satisfied with gingerbread, you can flash cyanogen mod ROM. Follow the link below:

  24. yagya please post the credits where you got this information

    ReplyDelete
  25. Netas3k, I have given the links of those place where you can get detailed information on rooting. I have collected the info from many places and after selecting the best method and testing it, only I've included the info here. Since, I don't know who made the update zip I can't give exact credits to him/her (I would like to thank the one, for his incredible job). For others the links should be enough. If you want me to give credits to someone who you think deserves it, please be clear. I have no problem in crediting his/her work.

  27. IT IS TELLING THE FILE IS WRITE PROTECTED IT CANT BE COPIED TO THE SD CARD

    ReplyDelete
  28. abu mulla,
    Root directory is the first folder or drive that you get after opening the Removable disk (your mounted sdcard) in the PC. It is the /sdcard/ folder in your android smartphone. And, it doesn't really matter so forget about the root directory if you can't get what it mean.

    Also, how are you trying to copy the file to you sdcard. Make sure data cable or card reader or whatever you use for connection are not protected. If you are using SD card adapeter to connected to your laptop then there is a lock that need to be opened in your adapter. Also, try again, or trying fownloading it right to your Mobile.

  29. Alright guys. Here's my guide.

    For those who HAVE CWM, please reinstall back the STOCK firmwares or kernels to get back the ORIGINAL RECOVERY mode.

    I REPEAT, this rooting method posted here DOES NOT WORK with CWM.

    Once you have rooted it, then only you install CWM. CHEEEEEEEEEEEERS!

    I hope that helps!

  34. Hi..
    I updated my galaxy pop to gingerbread 2.3.6. thanx!
    but my phone is delivering very slow performance... any fixes??

    ReplyDelete
  35. Go to Recovery (While your phone is off, press Home + Power button) and then select wipe data/do a factory reset option and wipe cache option and reboot. Your phone's speed should be improved.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Hello,
    I have gingerbread 2.3.5. Can I use the same method or should I do something else.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Yes, you can; this method will probably work on galaxy mini having GB 2.3.4 and above.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Thanks a lot. I've been messing about trying to root my Samsung Mini to unlock the phone and discovered that it has Gingerbread rather than Froyo. None of that means anything to me, but this simple walkthrough gave me SU.
    Straight away it told me that my provider was forcing a data connection through the phone rather than wifi, which is why it was costing me a packet, and why I wanted to change providers.

    Anyway, I'll still change providers, and thanks to you guys I'm a lot wiser. Especially now I know these phones are a simple version of Linux, not some super weird OS.

    I did find the connection of the SDcard 'as another drive' didn't always work, and had to connect and transfer the file through Kies in the end.

  42. Try doing a factory reset (data and cache wipe) by going to recovery and see if the problem is solved. Backup your apps before factory reset.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Sorry for the late response. No, your device is not bricked. Just flash Gingerbread firmware using odin and it should boot fine. Make sure you do a data and cache wipe after flashing is complete.

    ReplyDelete

  48. Anonymous, It's because you don't read the article above as well as comment in here, properly. If you did, you'd have been successfully already.

  51. No, you won't lose your apps while rooting. But, you can do backups of important files for extra precaution.
