    As of now, there is no suitable information available for Samsung Galaxy Music Duos. Though, you can try [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] or below procedure to root almost any Android Device:

    This is not my tutorial and i have not tested this on my phone so please dont ask me for troubleshooting
    the link of the original poster is given at the end of the post and all credit goes to him. I am just posting here so that fellow members can make use of this tutorial

    Requirements and rooting process


    • Your pitiable unrooted Android device
    • ADB drivers for your device installed on your pc (I used WinXP. You may use Win 7/Vista or the Linux distro of your choice) [SPOILER=CLICK]
    • [Only registered and activated users can see links. ][/SPOILER]
    • A working linux distro with Nautilus (I used a [SPOILER=CLICK][Only registered and activated users can see links. ][/SPOILER])
    • Strength, courage and whatever makes you a man according to Emerson.



    Rooting Process

    To start, you must have adb installed on the OS of your choice.

    I used my trusty WinXP system.

    To confirm your device is properly detected, in the command prompt, run

    Code:
    adb devices
    Now copy busybox, su, superuser.apk to /data/local/tmp/ using adb.

    Code:
    adb push busybox /data/local/tmp
    adb push su /data/local/tmp
    adb push Superuser.apk /data/local/tmp


    Now run adb shell

    Code:
    adb shell
    Note that you see a "$" sign in the command prompt. That means you are not rooted.

    Next run the following commands in the shell to change permissions and get some limited privileges for the Superuser files:

    Code:
    chmod 6755 /data/local/tmp/su
    chmod 755 /data/local/tmp/busybox
    chmod 644 /data/local/tmp/Superuser.apk
    Note that the names of the files are case sensitive.



    Done?

    Turn off your Android device using the power button.

    Now you need to reboot your system into a Linux distro which has Nautilus.
    Android and Linux, having a similar heritage, makes it possible for us to get root access over the Android phone if you are running with root privileges within Linux. I used an Ubuntu 11.04 Live USB disk to save the hassle of installing another os.

    When you have booted into Linux, open up terminal and type:

    Code:
    sudo nautilus
    This would open up the Nautilus file browser with root privileges.

    Now put your Android device into Download mode.
    For Spice MI-410/Huawei Ideos X6/CherryMobile Magnum HD/Wellcom A99 the method is to hold down the Volume up button and simultaneously turn on the phone using the power on switch.

    Once in download mode, connect the Android device using the microusb cable to the computer.

    Now using the open Nautilus window, navigate to /UserData/local/tmp/ folder and verify that you have the files you sent to the device viz. su, busybox and Superuser.apk

    Move/cut-paste su and busybox to /system/bin/ using Nautilus.
    Move/cut-paste Superuser.apk to /system/app/ using Nautilus.

    Now pull out the battery from your Android device.

    I swear, this was the most tedious part on my MI-410 which has such a crappy back cover.

    Now simply turn on your device.

    You must now have root.

    Verify by running:

    Code:
    adb shellsu
    You'll note that the "$" prompt will turn into a "#" and you'll be prompted by a Superuser permission notification on your device



    You have now completed your initiation brethren.

    Welcome to the root club.

    I must assert that although I am aware of no reason why this should not work on *any* Android device, phone or tablet, I have only tested this on my Spice MI-410 crossflashed with the leaked CherryMobile MagnumHD Gingerbread 2.3.4 firmware.

    I have tried to explain it in the easiest way I can, but I must state here that this is by no means an easy task and you must persevere. If you can't follow the steps to the letter, its better you don't follow them at all and wait for a single click app for this or a custom rooted firmware.

    I tried it, but when i connect the phone in download mode, i can't see anything... How is even possible that in download mode it shows on nautilus, it isn't like a pendrive... I'm using Ubuntu 10.10, if you can explain how do you access the phone via nautilus i'll appreciate it, thanks

    You need to connect Android Device to PC in Download mode as well as open Nautilus with Root Priviledges by using "sudo nautilus" command in Linux Terminal.

    After that the Nautilus File Browser will detect the device as USB Storage and you can then continue with moving the files to the Root folders on the device.

    More Info:

    About Download Mode:



    • Download Mode is a state your phone can be in that allows you to flash firmware through Odin or other desktop software.
    • When in Download Mode, you will see a triangle with an Android image in it and it says "Downloading..."
    • If you are stuck on the 'Downloading..." screen, you can just remove and re-insert the battery then power the phone back on.
    • If you are flashing firmware while in download mode, then you unplug it or remove the battery, your phone probably won't turn on any more.
    • Download Mode is essentially the same as Bootloader Mode.


    How To Access Download Mode:


    • Button Combo - this varies by device. Generally, it's some combination of holding a volume key or both volume keys and plugging in a USB cable that is plugged into a computer while your phone is powered off.
    • [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] (requires root)
    • CMD/Terminal



    1. Install ADB
    2. You must have USB Drivers installed for your device.
    3. Enable USB Debugging on your device and plug it into your computer via USB cable.
    4. Open CMD (windows) or Terminal (linux/mac). To open CMD, hold windows key, then press R, then type cmd.exe and press enter.
    5. Type adb reboot download


    P.S. - I tried it on my HTC Desire HD and it worked! You might need to install appropriate ADB Drivers on your computer.

    With your phone powered off, hold Vol up + Vol down + power button until you get into fastboot. Once in there you should be able to read some lines on the bottom left of your screen. One of them will read "lock state - locked" or "lock state - unlocked".

    Might be a driver issue. Try rooting from here:

    sir when i press all three vol up+vol down+power keys, the phone starts as normal boot but on the left bottom corner i can see a transparent word "safe mode". but the phone works exactly like the normal mode, with an exception of those two words "safe mode".

    is it the same "fastboot" mode or anything else ?
    plz help
