Unless you root your Samsung Galaxy Ace 4 smartphone, you cannot enjoy what it truly has to offer you. From overclocking the CPU for a boost in performance to flashing a custom ROM, all that can only be done when you’re rooted.
Rooting the aforementioned device is not a big deal. All you need to do is grab the required files from the following section, and then follow the steps to gain root on your device. It shouldn’t take too long to root your device.
Files You Need
1. This requires you to have a computer that runs Windows. Sorry Mac and Linux users!
2. You must have Samsung USB drivers installed on your computer.
3. Download Odin to your computer. It’ll be used to flash root files on your device.
4. Download Root Package to your computer. It’s the whole package to root your device.
5. This only works for the SM-G357FZ device.
