    Hey guys, Im looking to root my Samsung galaxy stellar.

    Anyone have good instructions for this? I've searched around a bit and haven't found much...

    Go to forums and search there.

    xda developers is a decent site. Look for your phone and go from there.

    Are you aware if these are updated and aren't bricking roots?

    Don't know... don't have a Stellar. No experience with any of them.

    Right now, debating the merits of hacking my P&S camera to enable an intervalometer.

    Yeah i''ve pretty much looked at all of these...its difficult to find a GOOD, easy root for the stellar.

    I'll keep hunting.

    The steps outlined in those links are pretty universal for any phone. Can you explain more what you're looking for that is easier?

    One click roots are notorious for bricking phones and should be avoided.

    I guess what Im getting at is.

    What is the safest way to root my Stellar sch-1200. It's currently completely bone stock, 4.2.1, Jellybean.

    Will I need Samsung usb drivers?
    WIll I need to revert back to ICS before rooting?
    What root program is the best in terms of safety. I know this varies by the millions. But like you said phatch, the one clicks aren't the safest.

    If anyone can find me a good program and process to follow I'll give ya a gold star :) haha.

    Yes. You have to plug it into your computer and it needs to recognize it properly rather than as a generic USB device. Counterintuitive to the principles of USB, I know.

    No, the root should still work, though you'll probably have to update the Superuser app when you're done.
    I'd follow the Android Forums steps of those links listed, but this is opinion, not declaration of safety. Since I don't have this phone, I can't say it worked for me. Rooting increases the risks to your phone and is inherently done at your own risk. Most mistakes can be recovered from though.
