III. Rooting the Samsung Galaxy Victory 4G LTE (SPH-L300):

1. Download and place the Root Package archive onto your Desktop.

2. Unzip files from the archive over to your Desktop.

3. Double-click on the RootDebugfs.bat file you extracted from the root archive.

4. When it says to connect the device, just plug in your device to your PC using the USB cable.

5. Follow the on-screen instructions.

6. And you should be rooted now!

    I want to say first, Thank-you, for this simple root and one click method for this phone, but second I feel as though I’m doing it incorrectly because i tried to use this on my girlfriends laptop which is windows 8 or 7 and when i “rooted” it, it didn’t do anything but add the super-user app which was useless because it said i was not rooted and i downloaded root explorer to double check and went to go into the “root” folder on my phone and it showed no files or folders and said “it seems the device is not rooted, this is required to view secured files and folders. so i am a bit confused on this but i will try again on a different computer.

      The procedure’s been confirmed to be working and make sure that you’ve followed all the steps properly in order to root your device.

      Sometimes, just missing a step or doing it incorrectly may lead to an unsuccessful root. So, give it a try on another PC and see if it works then.

      Thanks!

      • Mahesh Makvana

        Well, we’ll soon come up with a new method to root your device and will let you know about it.

        Thanks!

  • Jonathan

    Seems easy enough but I was wondering if this works on the virgin mobile version of the phone?

    • Mahesh Makvana

      This should work on the Sprint variant of the phone only. We’ll see what we can do for you!
