How to root Samsung Galaxy Fame

Your android device is not complete without root access, and that includes samsung galaxy fame which basically need root access. In this article i will show you how to root samsung galaxy fame GT-S6810.

Before i show you how to root samsung galaxy fame, you might want to update your phone if there is software update available for your phone (it's different for each region/country).

Because after successfully root the phone, you won't be able to do the software/firmware update directly from your phone, you'll have to manually update using software called odin.

Alright, now let's begin, first you must activate USB debugging mode on your galaxy fame, and then plug the phone to your computer, make sure the computer recognize the phone well (if not install usb driver for galaxy fame on your computer).

So here's step by step how to root samsung galaxy fame GT-S6810.
  1. activate USB debugging mode on your galaxy fame, read here if you don't understand.
  2. switch to PTP mode on your galaxy fame, read here if you don't understand.
  3. make sure when you plug your galaxy fame to the computer, the computer could recognize it (make sure the driver for galaxy fame already installed on the computer).
  4. download the motochopper tool here.
  5. extract the motochopper.zip to any where you like, for example c:/motochopper/motochopper/.
  6. click / execute the run.bat and then press enter (or any key to continue).
  7. wait until the whole process finish
  8. the phone will reboot, now you have root access.
If successful, you will see the superuser icon on your application drawer, just like this :

So what's the different before and after i root samsung galaxy fame besides now there is superuser icon? well the different is before the phone is rooted you can't access for example the /system folder as well as other restricted area of the android system. 

Now that you have root access you can install apps that require root privilege for example root explorer (my  favorite app), titanium backup, busybox, etc. You can do whatever you like because now you have full control of your phone.
