    i have done this my self im not the dev but if you google it you will find all about it im now going to find a way to get twrp for this device (this may work for Samsung Galaxy Stellar 4G LTE as well)

    update:if you have updated to the mk2 the impactor will no longer get you root but the link be low will root you and its just as easy i did update with out useing root keeper and lost root so i tryed this and boom all good i did not make this my self im not the dev but if you google saferoot you will find all about it

    How did you get root on the Samsung Galaxy Legend? I tried using Cydia Impactor and get an error message

    If you update you will lose root and this way will no longer work just a heads up

    That wasn't the case for me. I downloaded "Root Keeper" from play store , made a backup of su then installed update then went back into the root keeper app and restored root.

    If you have received the MK2 patch and lost root or just now thinking about rooting your Legend, There is still a way.

    It's called Safe Root. It's designed for the S4 but it works on the Legend just fine. I failed to do restore root when the patch went to my phone, I consequently lost root, tried to root again with Cydia and V Root, and they both failed. After going through the search process again, I found Safe Root here:

    Thanks to dev. k1mu for this great work.

    I have made a request to the development at Twrp to compile one for the Legend. There is one for the Stellar so it shouldn't be a big deal for it to be done. I'll keep everyone posted as I get feedback on that

    Get an app to set ur cpu and thrn u can start by deleating some stock apps that u dont need to hopefully free up some ram.... After making a backup of course.... And thanks woodybjr that sounds great.. I realy like this phone and im sure ill be keeping it for awhile. So oc and roms would be great.... :)

    What method for rooting the I200PP Galaxy Legend (Stellar) would be recommended? Ive seen 3, and everyone says theirs works.

    Also, is it going to be useable as normal?

    Ive had rooted phones before, done them myself, and not afraid to do it. I just want to make sure that I am going to still be able to use my phone as I can now. Ive read a lot of bad things about Verizon and this phone.

    All it does is remove the samsung lock pad screen that shows that you have a custom device its good for keeping the warranty it is a custom triangle away app that was made for the Steeler because the one in the Android Market did not work for our device

    I wanted to try this ( since I have an extra legend) but can't do anything because I am unable to load up the recovery on the test phone. So my only option is using Odin. But these are .zip not .tar or md5. If I could get these zips in any of those formats then I could try with Odin. Until then there's nothing I can do.
