Author: | Posted in Android Rooting 44 Comments

Samsung Galaxy Pop is yet another budget Android phone just like the LG optimus Me or Samsung Galaxy Y. There has been an official update for this phone which lets you run Android 2.3.6 on your device. So if you are still on Froyo, make sure you update it to Gingerbread. You can use Odin for the same. In this tutorial I will tell you how to root your phone S5570 running Android 2.3.6. It is quite easy. If you face any issues, feel free to comment below 🙂


  • Backup all your applications using ASTRO File Manager.
  • Back up all contacts to SD Card.
  • Disable Anti virus and other security apps

Steps to Root

  1. Download the rooting Package
  2. Copy the rooting package zip file to the root of your SD Card. Make sure you do not extract the contents of the zip file. Just copy the zip file to your SD Card. The reason why you should copy it to the root of your SD Card is that you need not search for it when you are in recovery mode and it becomes quite easy to flash the zip file
  3. Boot your phone into recovery. To do this, turn off your phone and press the OK button and Power button. You can release the buttons when you see the Samsung Logo to enter the recovery mode.
  4. From the recovery menu, select “Apply update from SD Card” and choose the zip file you downloaded in step 1.
  5. Flash the zip and then choose “Reboot system now” option.
  6. After your phone reboots, check if you have the superuser Application installed.

Did you find the superuser app?

  • I do already have SAMSUNG GALAXY Y and I wanted to buy Samsung Galaxy Pop S5570. What’s the use of it? What are the effects on phone?

    • Rooting lets you install custom ROMs on your phone, overclock it and lot more. However, Galay Y would be better than Pop in my opinion!

  • arsh agarwal

    the phone shows downloading with an android bot in the middle of the caution triangle
    this happens when i press the volume down key and the ok button(the middle button) and power key. then the proces does nt go any further.
    plz reply asap

    • Can you remove the battery and try again?

    • arsh agarwal

      i removed the battery and tried again bt no change
      is there any other way of doing this ????

    • Press the three buttons again and tell me what you see? If this happens again, press Volume up button instead of Volume down button!

    • arsh agarwal

      i did tht now the screen show
      # #
      # RAMDUMP MODE #
      # (ARM9 mode)#

      this exactly what my screen shows after doing the volume up instead of volume down

    • Okay, now what happens if you re-insert the battery?

  • arsh agarwal

    I reached the bootup screen and selcted the file u gave in the link bt it says that file could nt b found

    • By bootup screen, do you mean the recovery mode? You need to have the zip file in the root of your SD card and then flash it!

  • arsh agarwal

    Yes i mean that
    I hav the file in my sd card bt wt do u mean by y flashing it?
    When i choose the apply update from sd the syastem says file nt found

    • After choosing apply update form SD card, do you see the file you had downloaded and copied into your sd card?

  • Aatish

    Dont press volume down key. Press ok button+power key. Wen u see samsung logo leave both d keys. U wil reach recovery mode. If u press volume down with other two, u wil go to downloading mode. Downloading mode is used wen u wanna update ur firmware

    • Thanks for the update Aatish. I apologize for the inconvenience. The post has been updated!

    • The only disadvantage is that you will lose the warranty. To backup contacts, go to Contacts>Menu and select “Export” If your phone does not support this feature, you can backup contacts to your Google account!

    Hey Lalit, I am also getting the same error which Yash is getting. Can you just explain me about “Superoneclick”?

    • Superoneclick is a one click rooting tool. You can download it from and connect your phone to the pc via USB cable having USB Debugging enabled. After this just click on “root” in Superoneclick.

  • Surya

    I was going through some of websites where I found that its necessary to download Android SDK package in order to use Superoneclick. What do you have to say about this?
