How to root Samsung Galaxy Avant in Android 4.4.2 [Guide]

samsung-galaxy-avant [1]The Samsung Galaxy Avant is a smartphone that came out during mid 2014 last year. It had a quite release with Android 4.4.2 KitKat out of the box. Almost unbelievably, Sammy hasn’t updated this operating system since to a fresher version of KitKat. With that being said, we are unlikely to see Android 5.0 Lollipop coming any time soon.

REQUIREMENTS

The phone comes out of the box with Android 4.4.2 KitKat and still sits on that today–the time of the exploit release which cracks open the operating system away from the restrictions. We cannot recommend using the file below to unlock the internals if you are running jelly Bean or any software below KitKat. Likewise, we cannot guarantee or recommend installing the file if you are reading this and running Android Lollipop in the future.

BEFORE WE BEGIN

HOW TO ROOT THE SAMSUNG GALAXY AVANT

  1. Download the rooting package here [2].
  2. Download the Odin 3.10 file from here [3].
  3. Launch the executable Odin file on the desktop.
  4. Extract the rooting pack zip file.
  5. Turn off the Galaxy Avant by holding the Power button until it’s off.
  6. Reboot the Samsung Galaxy Avant in download mode [4].
  7. Connect the smartphone to the computer with the USB cable.
  8. Click the PDA/AP button depending on what your Odin version says.
  9. Search for the executable rooting file from the desktop.
  10. Don’t adjust any other default settings.
  11. Click the start button when you are ready for the flashing to start.

That’s all you need to do! Wait until the phone reboots by itself and when it does you are ready to disconnect from the computer and start searching for extra application from the Google Play Store or custom ROMs. Speaking of apps from Google Play: you can verify it’s working by installing the root checker [5] app.
