    My mobile is Samsung Galaxy Trend (gt7392) , it's new. But, my mobile is not so updated,its 4.1.2. But, I want to root my phone and install the updated andriod .
    Now, I have heard that , if I root my mobile, then, my phone would be totally useless !!!!! But, is it true ?? If I install a total new software or Android os , then, how my mobile is going to be totally useless ?

    Welcome to Android Forums.

    This thread was moved from Android Lounge to the forum where phones are discussed that don't have a dedicated forum.

    Rooting is risky because it "can" void your warranty. If something ever goes wrong during the "root" process or when installing a "custom ROM", you can be left with something as useful as a "brick".

    Rooting is not for the faint of heart, takes lots of reading to understand. I know this through experience, and actually prefer stock just because it's easier to maintain. An older version Android is not necessarily a bad thing, you'll find more apps that support it, and besides, you're running Jellybean which is currently the most widely distributed Android OS today.

    4.4: KitKat
    4.3.x: Jellybean
    4.2.x: Jellybean
    4.1.x: Jellybean*
    4.0.3–4.0.4: Ice Cream Sandwich
    3.2: Honeycomb
    2.3.3–2.3.7: Gingerbread

    Think this is a comparatively unknown Samsung, although it looks rather like a Galaxy Young to me, a budget phone that's intended for Asia. The people who do rooting tools tend to concentrate their efforts on the popular Samsungs, like the S series and the Notes. AF does have a forum for the Galaxy Young, but I don't know if what's in there would apply to the Galaxy Trend.
