Today our tutorial How to Root Samsung Galaxy S Advance I9070 on all Android Gingerbread 2.3.6 firmware versions. Check the latest baseband firmwares ZSDL1, DXLD1, DDLI1, DXLD2, PXXLD2, DDLD4, JPLD3, ZSLE4, XXLD1, XXLD2 and XXLE2. If your device is running with anyone of above firmwares then you can root the device easily by following my guide. Samsung Galaxy SII is successor of Galaxy S but Samsung launched a modified form and named it as Galaxy S Advance I9070. This is a mid range Android Gingerbread phone with some added features like Dual core 1 GHz processor with Mali 400MP GPU.  With that features Samsung wants make Galaxy S Advance device better than Galaxy S and comparable to Galaxy SII. We are here with a detailed guide to help your with rooting your Galaxy S Advance I9070. Samsung has not released any firmware updates yet to update to ICS. But if you root your phone and install clockworkmod CWM recovery then you can install Custom Android 4.0.4 ICS ROM.

Warning: Rooting will voids the warranty of the device. If anything happens to your device we won’t responsible for that damage. Do it as your own risk by following below steps carefully.

Requirements

1. This root tutorial will only works on Samsung Galaxy S Advance I9070.

2. Make sure that you have backup the data, apps and settings from your Samsung device such as SMS, MMS, Call Logs, Contacts, Images, Audios, Videos, Bookmarks, Wi-Fi, APN settings and MMS settings etc as this process is going to wipe every data from your device.

3. Check of security suites such as antivirus and firewall whether they are disabled on your Computer.

4. You need to turn on the Enable USB Debugging on your Samsung Galaxy S i9070. This can be done simply by following the path ‘Settings > Applications > Development > USB debugging’ and ticking the USB Debugging option box.

5. Please put your battery in charge and make sure that it was charged to at least 80%.

Advice: Before going to start the root process you must go to phone settings->click about phone and look for basedband version number. Note down that number in notepad and save it on the desktop.

Steps and Procedure for Rooting Samsung Galaxy S Advance I9070:

1. Download working root package zip file from here to PC.

2. Once you have downloaded the file, then you need to extract the zip file in the PC.

3. After extraction is done. Open the folder there you can see a file name Odin3 v1.83.exe.

4. Launch the Odin3 v1.83 application in the computer.

5. Turn off the device in order to enter into download mode. For that do like this press and hold the Volume Down + Home buttons together and Power On the device simultaneously. After 1 min you will get a download mode with green android robot image.

6. Connect your device to the Computer via USB data cable while Odin is open. Once your device get connected, ID:COM section turns yellow in colour. If it doesn’t than you need to reconnect your device.

7. In Odin tool you need to two select two files into their respective fields.

a) Click PIT tab and then select the GT-I9070_EUR_XX_8G_20111220_KL6.pit file from the extracted folder which we done in step 2. Once you selected the file left side Re-partition filed will be tick marked automatically. So you need to uncheck it manually. For more idea see the below picture.

b) Click PDA section and then select the rootkernel.tar.md5.

c) You need to uncheck all other option except ‘Auto Reboot’ and ‘F Reset Time’.
8. Click on ‘Start’ button and wait for the process to get completed. The Samsung Galaxy S device will reboot automatically.

9. Now you must try to install Superuser and Busybox from Google Play Store which is the easiest way to do it. Once you installed both apps then your device will be rooted successfully.

Well it’s time to switch back to stock original kernel basedband firmware version number. Because above we used kernel for rooting the device have some problems like sudden reboots and lags. So that you need to install exact kernel to the device again. I already told you above advice note down the number and save it on the PC.

Download anyone of the them based on current firmware DDLD4, JPLD3, ZSLE4, XXLD2, XXLE2, BULE2, DDLI1, DXLD2 andr PXXLD2.

Right now my baseband version is XXLE2. So I’m going to download xxle2 file to go back to stock version. Choose the file according to your device baseband version.

1. Run the Odin application again in the PC.

2.Turn off the device and Boot into Download mode. For that press and hold the Volume Down + Home buttons together and Power On the device.

3. Connect the device to PC via USB cable.

4. Click on PDA tab and select the file which you downloaded recently. I selected xxle2.tar.md5 because before I was running on this firmware.
5. Click on Start and the process will be completed. The device will be reboot automatically.

That’s it your device is rooted perfectly without any problems. In case if you find any issues with above procedure comment here. We will try to solve your problem

  34. hello @Ashish have you wiped the factory reset and cache partition in recovery manager. Some people noted that they solved the rebooting problem after wiping both of them. I think you should have try it and give us feedback.


    @Raja i think you told that you installed stock ROM right? have wiped both options. If not wiped while installing the update then you should have do it.

    1. Go to recovery manager wipe both things.
    2. Again Update the device with stock rom via Odin

    ReplyDelete
  35. Please tell me how to wipe the factory reset and cache partition.
    and one more thing as u have told that all data and installed applications will wipe away after rooting, but when i rooted my phone then none of the applications and data were deleted from my phone.

    ReplyDelete
  36. yes rooting will not delete the apps and data. But wiping will delete apps and date like contacts, sms, call log and photos. The only way to avoid restarting problems is to wipe both things.

    For entering into recovery mode. Turn off the device and now hold volume up and home buttons together. Power on the device with in 3 minutes you will going into recovery mode. There you can wipe factory and cache partition.

  75. Hey Shenoy, I am not able to find the OTA update version.(like u had asked me). i hv a doubt though. I had DDLJ1 before rooting, but for rooting I had to use DDLL1(as DDLJ1 wasnt available for rooting).Could that be the reason why I get error Invalid base error checksum wen I try to do OTA update?

    Also I saw in one of ur comments tat we can install stock JB update manually once it is available even if the phone is rooted. Can u please tell me how can we do that. Because I m worried that I wont be able to update to JB since I am not getting updates from OTA or kies as of now.... I am in two minds if i shd stay rooted or go flash stock firmware and get all OTA updates

    ReplyDelete
  76. Yes you can install the update manually without any problems. I m doing regularly changing to different Samsung official Stock ROM's. Here you goes the tutorial to install any firmware updates manually.

  78. HI i bought a new samsung galaxy s advance. I need to root it. can i unroot it later to get warranty. My phone have the follwoing specifications:

    Android version: 2.3.6
    Baseband Version: I9070DDLK2

    By doing rooting can i get 768 MB ram as mentioned in their site.
    I dont want to loss warranty. plz help me :)

    ReplyDelete
  79. By rooting you can get some memory but not full because the inbuilt default apps will consume RAM memory. Well installing custom Cyanogenmod ROM's you will get more RAM up to 700 MB.

    Are you worrying about warranty? Just re installed I9070DDLK2 firmware again into the device. You will get warranty back.

    ReplyDelete
  80. Hey Shenoy, thanks for that link. Just one more doubt, heard that JB update is available in Russia and will eventually come to India. How do I get that update with flashin to stock firmware. Also if I go back to stock firmware do I hve to factory reset the phone.

    Build number: GINGERBREAD.DDLK2

    I just wanted to know if this is the latest official firmware or
    is there anything new out there. Also what is the difference between DDLK2 AND XXLE2

    ReplyDelete
  82. Hey Shenoy, One more doubt. Do I have to do a factory reset after I flash stock firmware? I flashed DDLK2 and did cache wipe but did not do any datawipe and factory reset. I am sorry but I am actually a novice and have flashed my phone for the first time on my own. I had asked my friend to root my phone as I wasnt sure how to do it.

    ReplyDelete
  83. Can u help me find the rooting software for DDLK2?I'm unable to find it.

    ReplyDelete
  84. even i can't find the tutorial for rooting DDLK2 firmware. Because it was latest firmware developers will find a way to root the device. So that you have to wait somemore time to get this.

    ReplyDelete
  85. @Kunal Initially Jelly Bean update available for Russia but it will take sometime to come India may be 3 months more.

    difference between DDLK2 AND XXLE2. DDLK2 is latest firmware recently rolled out for Indian users and when comes to XXLE2 it was meant for Germany it got some Bluetooth and WiFi problems.

    It would be good if you done factory reset. Sometimes the device will stuck at boot screen and pre-installed apps will not work properly on newly installed firmware.

  86. @shenoy joseph:
    I have rooted before when my baseband was JPLD3 then an update came and i updated via kies so root has gone. My baseband now is JPKL2 ufter the update. Can I still root my phone using this method? If any problem, can i go back to my original stock ROM?

  106. Hey shenoy...
    I had flashed my sgs Advance to official JB 4.1.2 now.
    When i was using ginger bread my baseband was DDLJ1 and as i told u before that i got it bricked while rooting it.
    One thing more i want to add that at that time i accidentally clicked on the repartition button in odin.
    Now after that i flashed it with Jelly Bean rom.
    Now the problem is that instead of 16 GB internal memory i am only left with about 3.9 GB memory.
    Can i get my lost memory back?
    plz help me out.

    4. you can change the kernel to another but problems will arrive. So it's not recommended to change but there is chance to change whole firmware version without changing the kernel.
