    The link to the root.zip file is not working please check and provide a working link or the original source. A source to unroot.zip would also be helpful.

      Hi Sorry, It is working – for some reason it was not working from my office PC. Thanks. It will be useful if you could post a link to ‘unroot’ the device as well and one more question in relation to that.

      What will happen now, since now that I have rooter, if I do a hard reset? will it become like how it came from factory?

    How to Root Samsung Galaxy Pocket S5300:

    1. First of all download the rooting package on your computer and transfer it to your Phone by connecting your phone to computer in USB mass storage mode.
    *copy it to your root folder. Open the “My files” on the Home menu and you will see the folders. Putting it on the micro sd card will not be seen once you go to procedure #3.

    2. Now switch off your phone and remove the battery. Put the battery back again and restart it back again into recovery mode.

    3. For entering into recovery mode, press the Volume Up button, Menu button (center button) and Power key all together simultaneously.

    4. Once you have booted into recovery mode, choose the option “update etc…” and choose the file *update.zip* that we copied. You can use volume key to navigate through the available options.
    5. Confirm the installation by pressing yes and wait until the process completes.
    6. Up next, press back key and choose the “reboot system now” option.

      Turn off your phone.

      First Press Volume UP + Home Screen Button and then Press Power button,as soon as the phone turns on release the power button but keep holding the Volume UP + Home Screen button until it boots up into recover mode.

      Hope it helps.

    How can i get rid of the branded(signed) logo, name of Mobistar of my samsung galasy pocket even when i have new firmware installed i still get to read in KIES S5300XXLF5/S5300OXXLF5/S5300XXLF5/S5300XXLF5 (MST) and (MST) stands for brand name Mobistar.

    Now after installing new firmware all the widgets of Mobistar are gone but yes i had branded widgets in my firmware when i bought the phone. So any one knows what i got to do to get rid of that problem.

    Because now still marked with (MST) in none branded software i don’t get support for sosfware upgrades in KIES and because of that i lost my warranty. I have back warranty when this problem is fixed.

    Hi, I have done something really stupid. I was re installing windows while the phone was still charging though usb charger. I didn’t notice the phone connected and when windows was asking for partition, I unpartitioned my phone memory also. Lucky that the phone still works but but several vital applications don’t work at all. I also had an external sd card which is totally not accessible. So for example, the music player can not load any music.

    How may I solve this problem? Please help. Thank you.
