  • 6For the same version android, why are there very different methods of rooting?

    I have an Android 2.3.6 device and the rooting method for it described on many websites is very different fron those of other 2.3.6 devices. For example, the Samsung Galaxy Y can be rooted by updating with a root package in the recovery mode, which is very simple. However, the method described for my phone is very lengthy and confusing. Could the method for rooting Samsung Galaxy Y be used to root my phone since they have the same version of Android?

  • 7Can I get android 4.2 on samsung galaxy s3 without rooting?

    I don't want to root because I'm not sure about it and I use a mac, not a pc. My Samsung GS3 was bought on January 18th, 2013. I'm in Switzerland and I use sunrise. Will sunrise, my carrier, let me update my phone? When I check for updates, it says it's up to date. I really want android 4.2.! Is it just a matter of waiting until I can get it through settings and updates?
