First of all please make sure that your contacts are synchronized with your Google Account, and also backup all your apps, sms, videos and music because they will be deleted in the process.

Okay now, first of all be sure that your device is running on the latest firmware of XXJVK 2.3.3, because in other case you’ll brick the device. On the first hand download this files ( which can be found in the Rooting Package for XXJVK ; password: androidadvices.com ) :

  • CF-Root-XW_OXX_JV1 kernel

  • Kernel XXJVK

  • Odin3
