  • First of all take full backup of all the important files residing in your phone. And it’ll be better if you do it manually instead of using backup programs. Just connect it to the PC and copy everything important to a secure place.
  • Second thing you need to do is charging your phone at least 80% if it’s not charged that much already.
  • Third, you need to enable Developer Options in your device. Just navigate to Settings >> About and tap the build number five times to enable developer options.
  • Lastly, you need to enable USB debugging in your device from the developer options. To do that you can go to Settings >> Developer options and from there you need to check the checkbox assigned to the option of USB debugging.

How to Root Samsung Galaxy Grand Neo

  1. Download the Kingo Root Software from here and install it on your PC.
  2. Connect your Galaxy Grand to PC via original Samsung USB data cable. If drivers related to your phone have not yet been installed on the computer then first of all Kingo Root will install those drivers, so wait for it.
  3. Once it’s done, disconnect your smartphone from PC and reconnect it after launching Kingo Root. If drivers were installed properly then Kingo Root will identify your device and will show a dialogue box with “Root” button. Just click that button and tap the “Grant” button on your Galaxy Grand when it asks for your permission. Now you can sit back for a while until the rooting process completes.
  4. After the process is complete you’ll land on another screen with a “Finish” button. Click that button and disconnect your device from the PC.
  5. The last thing that you need to do is doing a little bit more wait until your device reboots completely.
