Please note that as soon as you root the device the warranty gets void, though it’s a reversible process wherein you can revoke the root access at any point of time but for which you will have to follow a simple procedure which we will see in the due course.

The best part of the rooting process is that anyone with the Galaxy 3 irrespective of the current firmware, you can proceed with the rooting procedure. Please note that at least you should be on a Froyo 2.2 operating version of Android and not on Eclair as this method which we will be checking out will only be compatible with the Froyo and Gingerbread builds of the firmware. To check the firmware all you need to do is to just go to the path of Settings > About Phone > Firmware Version where you will find the version of Android OS where it will show that you are on a Froyo or Éclair OS.  If it’s in Éclair 2.1 version then you will have to visit the AndroidAdvices site and need to update with the Froyo atleast.

Just in case if you wanted to know on what are the benefits of rooting then you will be happy to hear that there are tonnes of benefits of rooting and out of which we have selected few important benefits which you can find in the list below. Rooting basically opens up the device in such a way that it allows one to access the system level files so that the customization can be made.

The main advantages of Rooting are :

  • Rooting allows you to use tools like Voodoo & CWM,
