The benefits of this procedure

The SRSRoot software has many other aces up its sleeve. Take these, for example: battery tweaks and new features. If you don’t own the Galaxy Pop SCH-I559 and you wish to root another model, you can. This application works with plenty of other gadgets. And it’s powered by an SRS Server. The smartphone that uses the SRSRoot will not encounter viruses once the rooting’s completed.

Once the root access is achieved, your device will have custom ROMs and root-only apps. Superuser and admin permission together with customization tweaks will follow soon.

If you’re excited about rooting your phone, best do it only after you know about this. A rooted gadget will lose its warranty. However bad this may sound, the warranty won’t be gone forever. With the right guide, it will come back.

In case you choose to upgrade the phone, the root access will be revoked. While the phone’s important data will be safe, its system partition will not; the latter is going to be deleted. Internal and external SD cards will also be saved.


To start off well, the Galaxy Pop SCH-I559 needs to be subjected to these pre-requisites:

  • flash, on your notebook, the right kind of USB drivers for your type of phone from here;
  • a fully charged phone is recommended for today’s guide, so do that for yours;
  • the data on the smartphone has to be saved, so perform some backups (the regular kind);
  • a full NANDroid backup should be performed after the normal ones are completed;
  • the security software which comes with your device has to be deactivated for today’s procedure;
  • the notebook’s security software should also be deactivated;
  • the handset’s USB Debugging should be turned on;
  • your notebook should sport Windows;

Step by step instructions

With the requirements out of the way, the rooting can debut. It must do so with the very first step. This one and the rest of them are all delivered below.

  1. The first step of our guide needs you to find the SRSRoot app and download it on your notebook. Hint: the software’s over here. Go to that address, wait for a download button to show up and then click on it.
  2. The app’s download will be over in no time at all. When the whole process is finally done and the file’s where it should be, you will have to flash it on the same product.
  3. After you open the installed app on your notebook, you should enable a certain option. But first, let’s see how you can locate it.
  4. Go to the Samsung I559, tap Menu and then tap Settings. Under Settings is the option that should be tapped next. Its name: Unknown Sources.
  5. You will recognize the name of another option that needs to be activated. It’s this one: USB Debugging. Its name should be familiar because we told you to turn it on before.
  6. If you’ve activated it previously, then do the following: take a hold of your phone’s USB cord. This will enable the creation of a connection between that device and your notebook.
  7. Once the smartphone and the other product are safely connected, you’ll be asked to start the rooting. This is a task which requires the activation of an option. This is the latter’s name: Root Device (All Methods).
  8. [sc name=”banner-jos”]After the action’s been performed, you have to wait until it ends. Which will happen in less than 15 minutes. If, however, you see that nothing is happening even after those 15 minutes are up, repeat the steps.
  9. The smartphone should be rebooted after the rooting is over. Restart your Galaxy Pop SCH-I559 by selecting Reboot System Now. Next, tap this option.

Your handset can now reveal its novelties. Take a look at them, then decide whether you want to keep them or unroot the phone. If the latter’s on your mind, unroot the device with the SRSRoot software.
