Rooting is a simple but sometime complicated if not done properly. Rooting allow you to add super user access to the phone. That makes it more beneficial in using the phone. Now the device comes loaded with an optimized version of Android OS. You can install app, but you cannot go ahead with install custom rom or taking the backup. That remains limited as you don't have full access. Rooting offers a complete rom access that can be modified and applied. We will ahead with the process of rooting Galaxy Mega.


    Before moving ahead I want to give you a little information on Clockworkrecovery. What is the benefit of using it? ClockWorkRecovery is a popular feature of ClockWorkMod. CWM is a complete pack of advance features and option through which you can troubleshoot your phone instantly. It is very easy to use and provide you advance solution. Being a custom rom if you do not go ahead with proper rooting process your phone might brick. That means it will stuck on boot. It will not move ahead. To fix that through WM you can go ahead with installing custom rom back on the device. Rooting unlock all hidden feature of the device. You can extend the internal storage and do various new things. So letís move ahead with the process.

    Pre-Requirement:
    • Try to backup your data before. You can use Samsung Keis for that. Or you can go ahead with any third party application. You can install it to backup the internal contacts, photos, videos, sms, etc and restore them when the rooting process is done. This to stay on the safer side.
    • The process mentioned here is tested on Galaxy Mega. This might work on some other Samsung device also, but you must do that on your own risk. Because there is not guarantee that it might work on any other model.
    • Your phone must have maximum battery left. It must be above 80%. If the battery is low and the rooting process does not goes well the device will brick. So ensure that there is maximum battery left.
    • To use this process you will have to connect the phone to your pc. So just for temporary basis disable your antivirus.
    • Turn on usb debugging. Go in Settings > Applications > Development > Usb debugging. Turn it on.
    • Use the original Samsung cable only that comes in the package for this kind of process.

    • Download CWM Touch Recovery. There is a separate package available for Samsung Galaxy Mega 5.
