  • Backup all the data present in the device as in the process of installing custom recovery image, there is a possibility that the data may get lost or corrupted. Only with the help of below mentioned tips you can backup all the data.

SMS – Use “SMS Backup & Restore app”,
Contacts – Sync with the Gmail application,
Call Log – Call Log and Restore
Images, Songs, Videos, Files – Copy to internal / External SD Card,
APN and MMS Settings – Note down from the path “Applications > Settings > Wireless and Network > Mobile Networks > Access Point Names

  • Charge left in the phone should be minimum of 60% so as to facilitate smoother installation process.
  • Enable the USB Debugging Mode in your phone from the path “Settings > Applications > Development > USB debugging”, tick the option.

    Firstly, to inter recovery mode, you have to press the Home key button (the middle button) while switching on the mobile (it’s galaxy FIT 5670 not 19000).
    Secondly, I had S5670JPKQ7 firmware (original firmware for middle east) & I followed the instructions. After I reboot system, it hangs on “SAMSUNG” logo ant it repeats it over & over again.
    I tried it on S5670JPKC1 firmware also, but the same happens.
    Finally, I want to know the difference between this article & that one:
    http://androidadvices.com/root-samsung-galaxy-fit-s5670/
    that one worked for me, so do I need this one too?

  30. Suyog

    February 10, 2012 at 3:09 pm

    Hi there is little correction. Combination for getting in to recovery mode is home button + power button. You have mention Volume up+Home+Power this combination leads to RAM dump menu and not to recovery please do the correction (2.3.6)

    I read in some articles that rooting the phone deletes all the safety programs, partitions and software loaded by the manufacturers like Samsung and makes the device vulnerable and open for Hackers and those trying to get all the secret information from your device. How far this is true and how to prevent this?

    what does it mean?

      phones which work only on single n/w is a n/w locked device! like contract phones!

      • ChaosPrince

        March 3, 2012 at 4:19 pm

        -I didn’t understand what does it mean network locked , Does it mean that i need a “Wireless Network That connects to Internet” cuz when i install the clockworkmod – Recovery … the recovery mode on my S5670 Goes Like when i get my Phone Powered on By Pressing Home button + Power button It views the Samsung Logo and Hang up forever which means there is no recovery on my phone now , and when i press ” Volume + button ” + Home button + Power button my S 5670 leads me to a RAMDUMB mode .

        -And if i Ignored this cwm – recovery step and install the Cyanogen ICS 4.0.3 Mod , after it updates successfully … my phone hangs on Samsung Logo too 🙁

        PS: Please Don’t Ignore I wanna know why my phone get its cwm – recovery not working 🙁
