Furthermore this tutorial will work on any Galaxy SL despite the version of the Android system that is installed on your phone, so you have nothing to worry about. The best part is that you can gain root access in just a few minutes without using complex and risky tools that can damage or even brick your Galaxy SL. Anyway, do read all the following lines for ensuring that everything will work as planned.
This is not the only root guide that can be applied for your handset as you can anytime use a general root tutorial that is suitable with almost all the Android based smartphones and tablets, or you can complete a step by step guide that will offer a one-click root solution for several Samsung branded devices. Therefore read the mentioned procedures before deciding in which method to use for your Samsung Galaxy SL. Again, if you choose to resume this tutorial then you will be able to learn how to root the SL on any firmware; you don’t have to previously check the Android variant that is running on your smartphone.
Before beginning with the actual root operation you need to know that you will void the Galaxy SL warranty. This is something normal when talking about unofficial procedures, not to mention that by rooting we understand that the factory restrictions are removed and the system unchained, so it is impossible to keep the warranty “untouched”. Don’t panic, as you can anytime restore the warranty of your device; all you have to do for the same is to downgrade / update your SL to stock / official Android software. Then, the root access will be revoked and the bootloader relocked.
But, why to root your phone, you might wonder; well, the root operation is actually the first step that has to be performed if you want to improve the performances of your Galaxy SL. Without gaining access over the internal system of your device you will not be able to install complex and custom apps (such as CWM recovery), apply changes or customize and optimize the looks and the performances and more important you cannot update your SL with an Android ICS, or Jelly Bean based custom ROM firmware.
So, if you have decided to apply the present step by step guide then, before going any further backup the Samsung Galaxy SL data. Even though we will use a one-click root solution, you still have to save your personal info just for avoiding the unpleasant situations. Use backup and restore apps from Google Play, or follow our suitable tutorials (use our search engine) and learn how to backup the text messages, call logs, EFS folder, internet settings, market apps, contacts list and more.
Then, ensure that you can use a Windows running computer, where you will download and install the SuperOneClick tool (you have the download link and more info about the same below). Also, and as you can already tell, your smartphone and its USB cable should also be there. Now, on your device and computer uninstall the antivirus tools, the Firewall protection and all the others security programs. Enable the USB debugging option on your handset by going to “Menu -> Settings -> Applications -> Development -> USB debugging”. And check the battery status for ensuring that your phone doesn’t get turned off in the middle of the root procedure (you should plug in the charger if you notice that there is less than 60% power left).
The SuperOneClick tool for the Galaxy SL has been provided by those of xda-developers so we have them to thanks for the present step by step guide. Also, do remember that this tutorial is compatible only with the mentioned smartphone so don’t use it for trying to root another or a similar handset.
