How To Root Samsung Galaxy Camera On Android Jelly Bean

The very first question that pop up into your head when you get an android device is, how to root this thing? And its the same with Samsung Galaxy Camera recently launched in India.
Well, thanks to  XDA Developers, proper method to root Samsung Galaxy Camera is out.

DISCLAIMER : Hackinthus will not be held responsible if you lose data or your device gets damaged while following this guide. Proceed at your own risk.

The instructions provided below are for Windows OS, as Odin works on that.
You can do the same with Heimdall on Linux.

  • Required recovery & cache package
  • Odin3 Flashing tool version 1.85
  • Jellybean 4.1.1 build:GC100XXALK1 (required only if your current firmware refuses to accept the CF root used above)
  • USB Drivers for your Galaxy Camera
All these files can be downloaded via link provided at the end. 


Step 1: Extract the CF-Auto-Root-gd1-ekgc100.tar.md5 file from the recovery and cache package that you downloaded, and keep it in the same folder as Odin.

Step 2: Open Odin3 1.85 as administrator by right-clicking on it and choosing “Run as administrator”.

Step 3: Start the Galaxy Camera in download mode (Turn it off, and turn back on while pressing and holding Volume Down+Camera+Power).

Step 4: Connect the Samsung Galaxy camera to PC using USB cable. If drivers are installed fine, the first box under ID:COM will turn yellow.

Step 5: Hit the PDA button and point to the .tar.md5 file you extracted in step 1. Do not make any other changes, but make sure Re-Partition is UNCHECKED.

Step 6: Click Start, and wait for the process to complete.

Done!! Your Samsung Galaxy Camera is rooted!!
