How to root Samsung Galaxy Y Duos.



  REQUIREMENTS:
                Required zip files
                Minimum battery level of 75%.

  PROCEDURE:
           Download the zip file and keep it at the root of your SD card (not within any folder)

         Switch off the phone and reboot into recovery mode (by pressing, volume up+power+home buttons together).


       In the recovery mode the touch screen doesn't work, hence you have to navigate through the Volume buttons and select using the Home button.
       Select the option 'apply update from sdcard', and select the UPDATE.ZIP.

   
      Your phone flashes the zip file, now select 'reboot', and your phone turns on.

     CONGRATS.....!!  You have successfully rooted your phone.
    You can check for the SUPERUSER app in your phone to verify.




Note: Rooting removes the warranty from your phone, do it at your own risk.
How ever you can get it back by unrooting our device..;-)
     

UNROOTING :

   By this process you will lose your root access in your phone.
Its simple and same as rooting your phone.

Instead of flashing UPDATE.ZIP, u have to flash UPDATE-UNROOT.ZIP for this process.
 All the steps are same.

FLASHING CWM RECOVERY:

  The stock recovery of ANDROID has limitations, hence for advanced uses we can use CLOCKWORKMODE recovery, which provides much more options like Backup and Restore, Mounts and Storage etc.
      Download and keep the CWM.ZIP in the root of your phone, then turn off the phone and reboot into stock recovery.
      From there select 'apply update from sdcard', and select the cwm.zip.
     That's it, you are now in the cwm recovery.

Download the files here,
         
              update.zip

              unroot.zip

               cwm.zip

    Perfect Camera for Galaxy Y.


         Here is a modded camera.apk for better clarity and performance


    The changes made are,


    • audio frequency increased from 16000Hz to 44100Hz
    • audio channels increased from mono(1 channel) to stereo(2 channel)
    • superfine quality has been increased heavily
    • audio bitrate increased to 128kbps AAC
    • maximum framerate has been increased to 30fps(its variable bitrate so u wont get 30fps everytime)
    • Access camera during call ( not so important but few might want it :P )


    So guys here is the recommended settings to get highest quality:

    640x480 resolution
    superfine video quality


    Installing :

                             Extract the zip file and install it, or simple push it to 'System/app' using root explorer and replace the current camera.apk, or flash the zip file through CWM.

    In root explorer mount as R/W not as R/O before pushing this apk to system/app. After pushing this apk to the system/app and overwriting the existing camera apk, you will not find the camera icon in the phone, restart your phone to use the camera.

    Make a backup of the current camera.apk before replacing using Titanium backup or some other apps.

      Overclock Galaxy Y to 1.2 GHz

      Galaxy Y has a 832MHz  processor. Which is sufficient for normal use of the phone, but for gaming part its really very low(even the GPU is lower), you cannot play many of the games because of this reason, and if it plays, game lag will never leave you.
      So i suggest you to Overclock Galaxy Y to 1.2GHz.
        But there are few disadvantages of this. By Overclocking, the phone may run faster but it drains the battery very fast, also heats up your phone. The circuits in the phone may burn off because of running the phone in that frequency for longer time. Anyhow you can underclock it to suitable frequencies.

      By flashing a custom kernel called 'Merruk's kernel' you can overclock Galaxy Y.

           How to flash Merruk custom Kernel:

      • BEFORE FLASHING MERRUK'S KERNEL TO THE PHONE, YOU SHOULD MAKE A NANDROID BACKUP OF THE CURRENT ROM THAT YOU ARE USING. THIS IS BECAUSE AFTER FLASHING YOU SHOULD RESTORE THIS BACKUP IN ORDER TO REBOOT. CLICK HERE TO KNOW HOW TO MAKE A NANDROID BACKUP.

      Files required:
      ·        Boot.img (Merruk 2.0)
      ·        CWM by mad team
      ·        Elite kernel modules

      Put all these files in the root of the sd card (not within any folder)

      • FOR SAFE INSTALL YOU MUST BE ON STOCK ROM AND KERNEL.


      PROCEDURE:
      1.   Turn off the device and go to recovery mode by pressing volume up + power + home buttons together.
      2.   Now select  ‘apply update from sd card’ and select the CWM.ZIP, you will enter the cwm recovery.
      3.    In cwm recovery go to ‘mounts and storage’ and mount system, data, cache and sd casd.
      4.   Now select ‘install zip from sd card’ and select KERNEL + UPDATE.ZIP and flash it (select YES when prompted).
      5.    Go back and mount system again.
      6.    Again select ‘install zip from sd card’ and flash EXT4-CONVERTER-SIGNED.ZIP in cwm, then flash ELITE KERNEL MODULES.ZIP.
      7.   In cwm go to backup and restore>Advanced restore(select the backup which you had made just before flashing this kernel) >restore system, cache and data. DONOT RESTORE BOOT.IMG.
      8.   Reboot the system.
      9.   If you are stuck at the bootloop, remove the battery again enter cwm recovery and wipe data and cache, and again restore system and data.
                      10.  If you still cannot reboot, remove the battery and enter cwm recovery, then wipe                            data and cache. Then repeat the same procedure from step 1.

                  * It’s a stable kernel with only a single bug ( boot sound ).

                  * IF YOU WANT TO FLASH ANY CUSTOM ROMS AFTER                         FLASHING THIS KERNEL,                    MAKE SURE YOU                       HAVE REMOVED THE ‘BOOT.IMG’ FROM THE ROM’S ZIP                 USING PC.


                  * This kernel has a wide range of clock frequencies 234 MHz,                     288 MHz, 312 MHz, 416MHz, 468 MHz, 624 MHz, 832 MHz,                   936 MHz and 1.248 GHz.

                  * Install No-frills CPU app and                    set the maximum clock                             frequency as 1.248 GHz and                   enjoy.
