How to Root Samsung Galaxy SL I9003 on Gingerbread XXKPE 2.3.4 Firmware

Turn On Smart Life LogoSo, yesterday we saw on how you can easily update your Galaxy SL I9003 with the Gingerbread XXKPE 2.3.4 Release and now you would want to root your phone so as to further customize your device the way you want to as rooting allows you to access the system level files and then it’s all your play to customize the phone. Please note that rooting voids the warranty, so you better be careful about this, though rooting voids the warranty, there is a way to un root as well.

To un root the device all you need to do is to just update with any of the firmware versions for your phone and then the root access gets revoked and then the warranty reclaims automatically. But before you proceed you will have to ensure that you have the current version of firmware on your Samsung Galaxy SL I9003 as XXKPE. Just in case if you don’t know on how you can check the version then all you need to do is to go to the path Settings > About Phone > Firmware Version where you will find the version of Android OS where it will show XXKPE 2.3.4 version. If any other version name is being shown then that means you will have to update your device with the XXKPE version from the link which is mentioned above.

Rooting ensures that you can enjoy the benefit of the custom ROMs and also other things which you can do with the rooting of a device. If you are a developer then nothing can be better than rooting the device as this opens up your device to a whole new gateway of services and applications as some of the hardcore applications which needs the system files level access requires the rooting access and rooting the device is actually what it needs to satisfy this.

Note: Please note that you will have to reconfigure the APN settings after updating the firmware to access the data services and the Internet services as all the Internet APN settings will be reset. You will have to contact your Service provider to get more info on the APN Settings or alternatively you too can make a note of it. Not to forget also configure the MMS Settings or take down the MMS Settings as this too will need to be re configured after the rooting process. Also, we take no responsibility if you download the files and apply the below procedure to root your phone.

Please ensure that you follow all the below mentioned instructions carefully or else there is a high probability that you may end up bricking up the phone. So, let’s get started with the pre root instructions and then followed by the procedure on how you can root your phone.
