Safely root your Samsung GT-S6312

Monday, January 6, 2014

Today i will show you how to safely root your Samsung GT-S6312 smartphone, without 'bricking' it. Note that you can just as well 'unroot' your phone the same way.
Although what I am going to show you now is a very simple procedure that I have succesfully tested on my own Samsung GT-S6312 phone and that should probably also work on any Samsung phone that has Android on it, I still give no guarantee that it is what will happen if you try it on a different model/brand.
In any case, you try this at your own risk. What i am saying however is that, if you follow my advice and if you own the same phone as I do, everything should go great.

Also, i am assuming you understand what root is, and basically that you know exactly why you wish to root your own phone, that you have weighed the pros and cons and everything, right?.

Having rooted mine, i have not lost any app or personal file/data or whatever, but it's never a bad idea to backup, so I encourage you to do a backup in any case. Better be careful than sorry afterwards.

Okay so let's get started.

Step 1 - You need to download a free app called Framaroot, the version I've found on the net was Framaroot-1.8.1.apk, that you can download safely from here. Note: Android forums are the closest thing to an android resource site you could find nowadays, probably because Android being very new, so don't panick.

Step 2 - Once you have donwloaded this app to your comp, your need to transfer it onto your phone and execute it, or execute it directly if you have downloaded it right from your phone. So, complete action using Package installer and click yes when asked if you want to install the app.

Step 3 - Open the app and you will see a dropdown menu where you can select either install SuperSU or Unroot, choose Install SuperSU if you want root your phone, choose Unroot if you want to unroot it, that's as simple as that.

Step 4 - Now select the first exploit presented to you bellow, should be called Aragorn, and if like me you get an error message that the exploit failed etc., choose the next one on the list. Actually i have only two exploits on the list, Aragorn and Gandalf, and Gandalf works without any issue, so that's what probably will work on your phone too, Gandalf. If everything goes great, clicking Gandalf will result in the display of the following : 'Sucess :) Super and su binary installed. You have to reboot your device'.

Step 5 - So now time to reboot your device and check if everything went smoothly. To do so, just go to Google Play and look for a free app called Root Checker. Install it, launch it, click on 'verify root access' and find out. If everything went well, you'll get a congratulation message in green saying 'Congratulations! This device has root access!'

Note : many tutorials advise to go first to Settings->Developper options etc.. to enable debugging, allow mock locations, but in my case this was not a necessary step, rooting worked perfectly witout have to switch on developper options.

That's it, that's all there is to it. Stick around for more!
