The advantages of this method

To enjoy a rooting’s advantages, your phone won’t have to renounce its Android 2.1 Eclair OS. SRSRoot makes sure that no Android version is harmed during the rooting. Here’s the CPU which arrives with your phone: 720 MHz. Its speed will see a good deal of improvement after the rooting. The battery will not lag from now on; and you’ll see new features on-board the handset. ECLAIR is the Build ID we used; once this app is used, many Build IDs will be compatible with your phone’s rooting.

There’s more to the new app. With it come the following, too: superuser and admin permission along with customization options. Custom ROMs, root-only apps and zero bloatware are also part of the app’s deal. If you wish to avoud security problems, use this app.

An update will cost you; by that, we mean a revoked root access if the handset’s already rooted. Also, expect to lose the smartphone’s system partition. If you don’t upgrade your phone, you won’t go through this. If, however, you own a rooted device, its warranty will be a thing of the past. We advise you to rastore it via a guide (pick the one which only works with your Galaxy Beam GT-I8520).

  3. After having turned on the latter, look for Unknown Sources under it. Upon locating this option, we must urge you to tap it. Once its activation is done, you can perform this step: have USB Debugging turned on if you didn’t get around to doing it till now.
