    Theres no root for this phone yet beacause this phone was only recently released. seems there isnt any dev support for this phone yet anywhere so just be patient until some dev decides to take on this phone and find a way to root it.

    Hey everyone :) new to this forum and just got my Samsung galaxy attain 4g and have been wanting root for this phone. Im no dev or anything but certainly an Android enthusiast.

    I wanted to share something I discovered on this phone while turning it on and holding the vol.down or up button with the power button on the phone. It started saying something about a custom OS. and odin mode. Idk what it means, and I hope it works on others phones, or if everyone knows this.. Just a discovery that might help progress for the root exploit on this phone.

    odin is a program used to flash ur phone back to stock and i suppose the os feature allows u to manually update your os if there is ever an updated for the attain

    You are accessing the odin initiation thingie.

    Odin is used to flash samsung phones and restore to stock. Also used to edit some other stuff.

    What's up toke, how are things over on the Ascend side? I see you've added the Admire to the pot, I also upgraded to the admire, then quickly again upgraded to the connect. Have they gotten any further on developing any roms for the admire? It's now my daughters lol..

    I got the attain yesterday :D

    First true from for the admire came out Wednesday or so. Admiral beast theme (and name) zipalaigned and whatnot. Its not lightning compared to stock but it is much smoother.

    I just realized all the smartphones I have purchased have names starting with "a" ascend, admire, attain..... o_O o_O

    its funny, Not even Shabbypinguine or K0nane in XDA forums can Root this Phone, it has a 3e blocker on it that doesn't allow Odin to access it on the computer correctly, if you try to root it all you will do is BRICK the Phone! Sorry, Mate this is one Phone that Can NOT be Rooted :/

    Well technically you can't root it, however you can flash a pre rooted tar which will root it. If that makes any sense.
