  • Now, Shoot the recovery (.bat) file which would be there in the extracted folder.
  • Now, download the “Superuser Package” in your computer and transfer the file to the Root of your SD Card.
  • Enable USB Debugging Mode in your mobile phone (Settings > Applications >Development > USB Debugging).
  • Now, Turn off your mobile phone and start it in the Recovery Mode (Volume UP Key + OK button holding both of these press the power button).
  • When, your mobile phone is booted in the Recovery Mode, You need to select “install zip from sd card” and then “choose zip from SD Card” and then choose the superuser package file which you had transferred earlier in your mobile phone. It will take some time to install that file in your mobile phone. Now, select “+++++Go Back++++” then “reboot system now“.
