  1. I have found this tutorial to be less than informative. None of the techniques described here are viable at all. Universal root says that the device cannot be rooted, and to say that XDA has a lot of stuff on the SCH-i110 is also not true. They have nothing but a few people asking questions and getting no answers. I am not new to Android nor am I new to rooting. I have tried this exact procedure to the T on 3 Illusions, and each one says the same exact thing… Something tells me that you, yourself, did not try this. Now, I feel like I am being somewhat of a douche in this, so please accept my apologies for that. And if you can offer some legitimate advice and proof of this device being rooted with this method, I am all eyes and ears. I have also tried other methods of rooting it, all have failed… Its looking like this device is un-rootable.

    1. Then Why is it telling me, that all 3 devices I have tried cannot be rooted with a message that reads, “I cannot root this device” Am I missing something? What version of the program did you use?

      So far, every one click program I have tried has failed. I need this device rooted…

  2. doesn’t work I also tried universal root gives you the sorry! I can not root this device :( “…. The search continues for the root the oder universal root says “Failed! NO ~~~~~Fu goo~~~~~
