    How To Root Samsung Galaxy Grand 2

    Samsung Galaxy Grand 2 is the next version of Galaxy Grand released before. This new model is more better and bigger. 5.2-inch TFT Capacitive Touch screen display provide full HD output and maximum resolution of 1280 x 720. It is an ideal mobile phone for internet surfing, multimedia and gaming. The device is bit popular for its camera features and amazing screen. It has the TouchWiz UI that makes usage very simple.

    The device is powered by Android 4.3 Jellybean OS. With 8MP front camera you can take amazing photos. The camera is also supported by many additional features like Autofocus, touch focus, smile detection, etc. The device is packed with all required features. .2 GHz Quad-core processor, Android 305 GPU and 1.5GB of RAM is quiet enough to run variety of application. It works really fast and has a smooth output.

    In this guide I am going to show you how you can root the phone. Rooting is the process where you unlock the phone bootloader, you can modify the rom that hold the operating system. Custom OS are available on web. You can download different OS taking maximum benefit from the powerful hardware of Grand 2. There are ample of benefits in rooting a device. You can create more space inside by removing pre-installed apps, you can improve battery output, backup rom, etc. And with Custom OS you get several tweaks and mode that make your phone more better. So let's move ahead.

    Things to do before:

    • Remember rooting will cause warranty issues. Once the device is rooted you won't get warranty benefits. This is because it is an unofficial method.
    • Backup your entire phone data before moving ahead. Also your device must be charged atleast 70%.
    • Rooting and Custom ROMs brings additional benefits but if it you do not carry out the flashing process properly your phone can brick. Take maximum precaution before flashing.
    • After rooting you will fail to receive all official OTA updates from the manufacturer.
    • Update your system with latest USB drivers for Galaxy Grand 2. If you are unable to find them just install Samsung Kies.
    • Go in Settings > Development and enable USB debugging.
    • Download Pre-Rooted Stock Firmware and Odin Tool v3.09. We are going to use odin here which is the easiest method.

    Rooting Galaxy Grand 2:

    • Extract the download files on your desktop inside the folder. Keep it in a place where it can be located easily.
    • The next thing you have to do is switch off the device. We will boot that in the download mode where it will be flashed through ODIN.
    • Now hold the volume down + home + power button. This will put the device in download mode. You can see odin on the screen.
    • Go in the folder where you had extracted all files and double click on odin.exe. Once the program is on the screen connect the mobile with the pc through original usb cable.
    • If everything goes well then the ID:Com section of ODIN will turn to yellow. That means the device is detected. If this does not turn then your system is not having usb drivers. You have to install it back. But once it is detected we can move ahead.
    • Now click on Pda button. You will see a windows explorer and from that go in the folder where you had extracted all the files. From there choose Stock Firmware file.
    • And tick on Auto Reboot and F reset. Click on Start and wait back. The process will take some time.
    • Once it is over you will get a pass message and the phone will restart.

    Your device is now rooted successfully. Enjoy !!!
