    Hi,

    I have a Samsung Galaxy Europa, which i would like to root. I have seen the thread dated dec 15th 2012, about this, but this hasnt been helpful for me so far, can someone please help me out with other ways it can be done for this specific phone. I also tried to do it through Androot, also without success.

    Thanks!

    Hi

    Thanks. The reason for my decision to do this, is so that i can get rid of the crap which came pre loaded with the phone, that i cant uninstall!!! Is this the right way of going about it , to get rid ??

    Cheers

    It is, but it's also dangerous if you accidentally delete something you shouldn't, for example, the launcher. Always double check what you delete before you do it and make a backup. Google that if you're not sure.

    Hey there Ceres, let me start off by welcoming you to the forums :)

    Anyhow, if you are interested in rooting, ExtremeNerd has told you the right steps, I.E. creating a backup and such.

    If you really want to know more you should read this: http://androidforums.com/faqs/443432-what-root-being-rooted-mean.html

    Within this is the reason you are rooting:

    If you have any more questions or concerns feel free to ask :)
