To the best of my knowledge I followed all of the instructions for the one click root , but my phone seems to be stuck at the Samsung logo and is still vibrating. Been doing this for about 10 mins now. Am i being impatient or omething went wrong and I f-d up my phone ? Please help , I dont know what to do . Also , if you have any suggestions, be kind enough to explain as if to a 12 year old. :) THANK YOU !!! Oh..how do i copy the log so I dont have to type out the whole thing ?

    pull the battery and reboot. install superuser to get full root capabilities after it boots up

    Well you could just flash cwm through odin, install cwm and flash stock++ since it's basically just a tweaked and rooted stock

    Follow this guide : http://androidforums.com/admire-all-things-root/488848-odin-clockworkmod-recovery-not-compatible-rom-manager-yet.html to install cwm.

    Next you're gonna want to download this : Dev-Host - CM72RC1-Kernel.zip - The Ultimate Free File Hosting / File Sharing Service and install it in cwm. Then you reboot recovery and install this from your sd card : Stock++-requisite0.zip - 4shared.com - online file sharing and storage - download

    Christ , I feel like such a ****** right now. The instructions are self explanatory and I should have been able to do it .I pretty much followed these instructions except for the "back up your data part" ... tried with an sd card , without , with unmounted card . Tried with and without superuser. Did all of the above on 2 different computers with 2 different usb cables. btw, do i have to combine the admire-root folder with the admire drivers folder ?
    1. These instructions are based on a rooting method using a windows based PC, so make sure you have a Windows PC.

    3. Download and install Samsung Drivers.
    4. Enable USB Debugging on the Samsung Admire. To do this, head to Settings -> -> Development and check the box next to Enable USB
    II. Rooting the Device

    1. Download the One-Click Root zip file.
    2. Connect your device and make sure USB Debugging is enabled once more.
    3. Extract the downloaded zip file to folder on your
    4. Navigate to the unzipped folder and double-click run.bat.

    5. Once the process is complete, the device.
    You should now find the Superuser app installed on your device, signifying that you now have root. If you don’t have Superuser, try installing this from the Market to check if you have root but not the Superuser app. If that fails too, repeat the whole process once again. Many users have reported the same process working on the second or third try, so keep at it – just remember to enable USB debugging before you do so.

    Okay if none has fixed the problem,
    1.Try doing the metro update from
    Support - More Cell Phone Providers SCH-R720 | Samsung Cell Phones

    2.That should update your phone to a even newer version of your admire,
    Now if you want to root your phone try doing this guide from there.
    (To root)

    If you follow the above i can almost bet you will be happy with it.
    I had the same problem at one point:)
    Now I have android 2.3.6 and rooted all the way with busy box and all.

    And head's up one click root puts super user on your phone for you, all you have to do is update the app, Injoy:D

    Hello: guys I've been reading about this article because I have the same issue, but I have another problem I was downloading the programs that I need to get my cell phone back on again but the problem is that the little usb port that I use to charge my phone is broken. So I was wondering if I can do this trough the sd card and what are the steps to do it thanks a lot for any information. I really appreciated

    NO root - No cwm- under the first year.
    Sounds like a true warranty job. ( PLEASE INVESTIGATE LOGISTICS)
    Your phone can be made somewhat usable, but this looks like a replacement would be best. with no usb port functioning, it stops you from entering d/l mode.

    ps; you did try pulling the battery didn't you?

    Yes snake 557 I took off the battery too but nothing worked. So you don't think that there is another way to recover my cell to the original condition?
    I though that I was going to be able to recover it through the sd memory card.

    The most simplest and easy to understand way would be to download the simple upgrade tool. You can download it HERE.

    Just run it on your computer and follow the instructions :)
