    to make ur device more responsive i have way to do that.
    as u r rooted now then using root explorer go to etc folder and verify that init.d folder is present or not.
    tell me via private message.

    @everyone as many of u r rooted now then before proceeding further wid any action backup ur current stock rom in recovery.
    so that anything messes up ur phone then u can restore ur phone to good state any time

    My friends, I live in Brazil and my galaxy Y came with V2.3.5, I wonder what root can use it, because you have here, at the end of an error where the operation is aborted.

    Thank you!

    PS: Sorry, but my english is so bad...

    1) Download the file here - LINK
    2) Now copy this file into the root folder of your phone's SD Card
    3) Switch off your device and restart it into recovery mode using the following key combination Volume UP + Home Button + Power Button
    4) You will find your phone in recovery mode with blue coloured UI. You cannot use touchscreen while your phone is in recovery mode.
    For making selections and movements, you have to make use of volume up/down keys and make the selection by pressing home key.

    5) In the recovery mode menu, there is an option 'apply update from sdcard' Select it.
    6) Choose the pasted and click on "yes".
    7) After the patching of that file, you will be back to the menu, and there it's written "reboot system now". Select it.
    8) After the reboot, go to phone's main menu and if you are able to find the "SuperUser" App on it, but once you click it you will notice that it doesn't work anymore, (You can verify it by opening any rooting needed app like Chainfire3D)

    Well guys now that you have finally unrooted your phone Samsung Galaxy Y, it will now be impossible for you to run the HD games
    See this video for further details: Un-Rooting Samsung Galaxy Y S5360 (Tutorial) - YouTube
    Hope this works for you.
    Thank you.:cool:
