Today’s the day your Galaxy S2 HD LTE SGH-I757M gets a taste of root access. The introduction of the latter to your phone is done with a dedicated app. Things will then start to change for the device!
Dealing with a rooting app has both advantages and disadvantages. Let’s get the latter out of the way. The phone will have its system partition deleted once you install an update firmware. The root access will be no more on your handset. The Samsung SGH-I757M comes with an internal and an external SD card; both of them will remain unaffected by a potential upgrade. Likewise, the device’s important data will stay undamaged. When the device is rooted at last, the default warranty shall be revoked. This doesn’t mean you cannot have it restored. There are tutorials that work with this phone; use one of them to retrieve the warranty without problems.
The benefits of this method
Now for the advantages that arrive with root access. Your handset was first thrown on the market in 2012. The SRSRoot is free to use on whatever gadget you wish to root, no matter its release date or manufacturer. The app is OK with all of the Android OS versions Google sent out till now. Your own handset uses Android 2.3.6 Gingerbread. Have you always wanted to try out new stuff? The SRSRoot will make your dreams come true; starting with the addition of many new features. Likewise, the phone’ll have a generous amount of root-only apps.
Before starting the procedure, decide upon a Build ID. This can be used if you don’t know which one to pick: JZO54K.I757MUGMC5. The app from this post accepts other such tools, as well. Its many qualities include this one: the ability to improve the phone’s 1500 MHz CPU. What’s more, the freeware comes with a wide selection of customization tweaks. An SRS Server powers the app; its presence means custom ROMs, too. It also deals with superuser and admin permission. Battery tweaks are the last novelties to be mentioned.
If you ever feel like experiencing the SGH-I757M without the root access, today’s app can work as an unrooting option. A lack in security problems and bloatware alike also makes the SRSRoot appealing.
