  29. Simple way to root your phone, just download
    root master and open it
    after that
    turn on your mobile data and click on root in root master app. That’s it

  30. In the last step, where we need to install SuperSU from recovery mode,

    while installing the Update-SuperSU v1-1.80 (which i downloaded from it gives the following error message:

    — Install /sdcard–
    Finding update package…
    Opening update package…
    Verifying update package..
    E: failed to verify whole-file signature
    E: signature verification failed
    Installation aborted.

    “added message was not showing in odin after connecting my samsung mobile using cable

    • You haven’t installed the USB drivers or the drivers you have installed are not working properly. Fix it and you will be able to see the Added message.

  50. hey dude thanks for all that but I’ve a query will u please give the solution.
    THE QUERY is what exactly is recovery.tar ?
    you have used it but how.
    I ve already download ODIN3
    and superuser-3.1.3v.
    will u let me know.
    as soon as possible rest all thing are perfectly explained!!!!!

    • recovery.tar is a custom recovery file. When you install it via Odin, you will be able to boot into the custom recovery and from there on you will be able to install SuperUser.

  51. Good day. Pls my phone is not going into recovery mode. What should I do?

  52. it shows “failed to verify whole file signature” and hence gets aborted
    while in recovery mode

  53. I’ve downloaded the root files from the link u gave above, but I didn’t get the file “SuperSu’ that you mentioned above.
    i found these 2 : CWM-SuperSU-v0.96 & CWM-Superuser-3.1.3
    which one should i use ?

    • You can use any of them.

      • Thanks bro, it worked fine
        now can you recommend me the best + safest mod to install on my phone ?
        it’s kinda very very slow and i wanna make it better

        • ok i take back my words … the root didn’t work
          i did all the steps right and like in the video u gave in comments
          and at the end i found the superuser app icon so i thought it’s rooted now
          but with root checking apps it’s not rooted
          can you help ?

          • Check whether you will be able to install and access applications which only supports rooted devices, then you will know for sure whether your device is rooted or not.

  54. So i followed all the steps till the end, but no rooting and i think something wrong happened to the phone
    how can i remove the root and all the stuff that have been changed ?

  55. Successflully completed ! Thank you

  68. Hi, friends …Root your phone in one Click with Root Genius. I already tried it.It works…..

  69. Good job you are doing here.

    I have gt kies and all the root fies. But whenever I try connect my s duos 7652 to pc, it keeps showing ‘usb drivers not sucessfully installed’. I have downloaded diff. samsung usb drivers, all showing same thing. My pc only recognises the phone as another drive, so I can copy data out and into it. Does anyone know a link to a tested and woking samsung usb driver? Or is it problem with the pc?

    I use win7, usb debugged ON.

  70. Thnks for your response.
    1. Is download mode the same as Factory mode? I asked this because when I pressed down and held the three keys (vol down, power and home buttons) and releasing them, I was only led to Factory Mode with this options:
    . Full test
    . Item test
    . Test report
    . Clear eMMC
    . Reboot.

    I CANNOT SEE ANY YELLOW TRIANGLE OR MESSAGE as in no.6 above. Am I in the right direction? If yes, what option do I select here? Or is there anything I am doing wrong?

    2. The usb drivers in the link is v1.5.49.0. I tried it but my phone still show ‘drivers not installed successfully’. I also tried diff. USB cables. Pls what could be the problem? I REALLY WANT TO ROOT THIS PHONE.

  71. sir. iam press down button up button home button and power button but not coming cwm recovery button press but come normaly mode. please help me .

  72. abhinav bisht says:

    does i need sd card for this

  73. anjit pandey says:

    I followed all the steps mentionedmentioned but when I booted in to recovery mode it was not cwm ….but it was my stock recovery….pls help

  74. Ankur Patel says:

    I have completed all procedure on my phone (Samsung GT-S7562 DUOS) successfully. but after rebooting phone, SUPERSU icon doesn’t appears on screen.
    does my phone rooted? as I can not see any changes in phone.

  75. mobile network signal strength reduced after rooting ,no signal in 3g mode. !!!

  76. after completing root ,root checker saying ‘root access in not properly installed’!!

    • Sathish says:

      If you see SuperSU app in your device, then your device is rooted. Forget what the root checker says!

  77. sir, when i tried to install the superuser apk zip file in the android recovery mode, i was facing a problem.
    it shows me error –>”E:failed to verify whole-file signature” and “E:signature verification failed”
    and at last it shows, installation aborted. what should i do sir? please help me

  78. I cannot still get my phone drivers intsalled successfully on my pc bt with a wide reading thru d internet I was able to discover “kingroot” app and this did d job within three minutes even without pc. So my s duos 7562 is now fully rooted and tested.

    1. I’m now faced with how to install custom rom, if possible without pc. Pls how can I go about this? Remember no usb drivers have worked so far.
    2. Using kingroot to root the phone now made “kinguser” app installed automatically on my phone. Since much importance is attached to “superuser” app before installing rom, can I still go ahead and independently download and install “superuser” app on the same phone?
