Root Samsung Galaxy Grand Quattro GT-I8552 [CWM+ Root +Unroot]

How To Root Samsung Galaxy Grand Quattro GT-I8552 [CWM+ Root +Unroot]









I have got my hands on a new Galaxy Grand Quattro White 8GB. First impression was really good. Compared to the Original Grand , the most striking difference is the reduced screen size. Quattro has a 4.7inch screen compared to the 5inch one from Grand. Also the Camera is 5MP instead of 8MP. But picture quality is decent. You also get many modes and options from camera.

 Performance wise ,it was good. It runs on Android JellyBean. The one thing i didnt like on Quattro is the 480x800 resolution. I mean come on , we have already passed the era of those resolutions. Its time to move on to the HD realms. Basically we expect a minimum of 720p. As a result the pixel density is lower compared to most of its competition. 

Since there is a Grand 2 out on the market @ 20k Rs., the price is justified for this device.

Any how, Lets just get to our topic here. This article will help you to flash CWM recovery , then root and also shows you how top unroot Samsung Galaxy Grand Quattro.

Warning:

  • Rooting voids warranty. Do this steps under your own risk.
  • We are not responsible for any damages occurred to your devices.
