I've seen videos on youtube on how to root samsung galaxy y and it i think it is easy but not safe. My questions are can you guys suggest on how to root my phone easily and yet safely. What to do before rooting? What if i fail? What are the consequences? And lastly what applications should i install/download to increase my battery life and make my phone faster aside from rooting? THANKS in advance Btw i need it as soon as possible. Hehehe BTW i'm not familiar with things about my phone i mean the firmware blah blah. Well i want to make my phone better and to delete the apps like latitude, places, and etc cause i don't need those apps. THANKS My android version is 2.3.6 Kernel version 220.127.116.11 Hope it helps.
