How to Root and Install ClockworkMod Recovery on Samsung Galaxy Ace Plus S7500

If you have a Samsung Galaxy Ace Plus S7500 smartphone, then you should root it to enjoy a bunch of new apps that work only on rooted phones. Here’s a guide showing you how you can root your Galaxy Ace Plus S7500 smartphone.

I. Before You Begin:

1. Warranty of the phone will be voided once it is rooted. If you need, then you can get back the warranty by installing either stock firmware or unrooting your phone.

2. Make sure your phone has at least 60% of battery life left to last through the process.

II. Downloading Required Files:

1. Download the ClockworkMod Recovery Image from here.

2. Download the Rooting Package from here.

3. Download the Odin Tool from here.

III. Installing ClockworkMod Recovery on your Galaxy Ace Plus:

1. Extract files from the Odin Tool archive and place them on your Desktop.

2. Double-click on Odin3 v1.85.exe file to launch the Odin Tool.

3. Turn OFF your smartphone using the Power key.

4. Put your phone into the download mode. To do that, press and hold Volume DOWN+Home+Power buttons together.

5. Connect your phone to your PC using the USB cable.

6. From the Odin Tool, click on PDA tab and select the CWM Recovery Image file for flashing.

7. Hit the Start button to commence the process.

After the recovery is successfully installed on your phone, it will reboot. Now, move on to the following procedure to root your phone.

IV. Rooting Galaxy Ace Plus:

1. Turn OFF your Galaxy Ace Plus smartphone.

2. Press and hold Volume UP+Volume DOWN+Home+Power buttons together to boot your phone into the recovery mode.

3. Connect your phone to your PC using the USB cable.

4. Extract files from the Rooting Package and place them on your Desktop.

5. Double-click the runme.bat file to start rooting your phone.

6. When the rooting is done, reboot your phone by choosing reboot system now from the recovery menu.

That’s it. You have successfully rooted as well as installed ClockworkMod Recovery on your Galaxy Ace Plus smartphone. Now, you have open gates to the world of custom ROMs and Root-only Apps.

If this procedure helped you, then please head over to the XDA Forum to thank/donate to the original developer of this root method !

  • anggatape

    i never succes root my phone
    fail in runme.bat
    can anyone help me?
    sorry bad english

    • Mahesh Makvana

      Could you please tell us what error are you getting while running the batch file?

  • arjun

    dude, it says that ur device was not found when i go for the last step i.e. rooting my phone!!

    • Dax Krishna

      arjun, did you let your PC install the necessary drivers when you connected it in recovery mode? If you are running Windows 7, they should automatically install when you connect your device. Wait for it to finish and then click on runme.bat

      • Ric

        My phone has CWM recovery mode as per instructions above. I turn on the phone in recovery mode and plug into the PC. PC finds the phone and informs me that the device is ready to use. I click on runme.bat, it goes through the motions, but each line declares that the file is not found, and nothing gets installed. What might be wrong?

        • Mahesh Makvana

          Make sure that you’ve extracted all the files from the Rooting Package. The file “runme.bat” alone can’t root your device.

          File Not Found error usually occurs when the required files are not present in the directory where you’ve RUNME.bat file.

          • Krish

            But the File Not Found error comes even after having the required files.

    • Mahesh Makvana

      You need to follow Dax’s suggestion, just install the necessary drivers and your phone should be recognized by your PC.

    whats the matter?

    • Dax Krishna

      are you sure you are in recovery mode? if yes, then did you install all the necessary drivers?

  • Shiyas

    When i started the ‘runme.bat’ file, it says:
    The system cannot find the path specified…
    What am i supposed to do??

    • Dax Krishna

      what operating system are you using Shiyas?

    • Mahesh Makvana

      The batch file works on Windows operating system only. If you’re using Linux or Mac, then it won’t work.

  • john

    how to
    unrooting??
    and can i know where to get the stock firmware??

  • jishnu

    I cant get into recovery mode…when recovery mode opens it just blink and athe phonw will restart

    • Dax Krishna

      flash the stock recovery using the same procedure as above and try if you can get in to recovery mode then. Then try flashing CWM recovery without missing any steps!

  • eeprom

    Did we must to instal some driver in windows first, before all of this?

    • Mahesh Makvana

      Yes, you should first install the required drivers on your PC, so it can recognize your smartphone.

  • Mohit Sakhuja

    Can anyone tell me which drivers do I need to install in my Windows pc so that it can recognize my smartphone? I’ve installed CWM recovery manager, Also I’ve downloaded the Root.tar file. the only problem I’m facing right now is that whenever I connect my phone (recovery mode) to pc and double click on runme.bat file, it shows “Device not found” but still the process is over and I’m unable to root my phone. Please help.

    • Mahesh Makvana

      You should check out the Official Website of Samsung to download the drivers for your smartphone. After downloading the drivers, install them on your Windows PC and your PC should detect your smartphone.

      Hope it helps!

    • simar

      sorry super user app is installed but none of data is deleted and in superuser app.. every list is empty?.. how to upgrade and do other things

      • Mahesh Makvana

        What are you trying to upgrade with Superuser?

        Superuser is meant to provide root access to the apps that ask for it. It doesn’t do anything like upgrading, etc.

        Hope it helps!

        • simar

          • simar

            if i delete all data using clockworkmod recovery then… will the clockworkmod go?

          • Nop, the CWM Recovery should be intact and just the data you selected will be erased.

            Thanks!

    my samsung galaxy ACE plus is not reeboting after installing CWM recovery plz helllllp

  • My galaxy ACE plus in rebooting after installing CWM recovery plzzz hellllp

  • Moni

    Hello! First: Thanks to provide this tutorial.

    I’m afraid, I’m stuck in step 7 of the process of installing CMR. I’ve followed the instructions and now my phone is connected to the computer and says “Downloading… Do not turn off target !!”

    In Odin I didn’t change any options, the options “Auto Reboot” and “F. Reset Time” are checked. I’ve chosen the file clockworkmod-5.0.2.8.tar.md5 in the PDA-section to download and hit the “Start” Button.

    Then the first text field of the section “ID:COM” turned yellow and says “0:[COM3]”.

    The message field says:
    Enter CS for MD5..
    Check MD5.. Do not unplug the cable..
    Please wait..
    clockworkmod-5.0.2.8.tar.md5 is valid.
    Checking MD5 finished Sucessfully..
    Leave CS..
    All threads completed. (succeed 0 / failed 0)

    But nothing else happens. We’re waiting for the phone to reboot for several minutes now.

    What can we do now? How long should we wait? Cancel and restart the process?

    • Moni

      Ok, we tried again, now it seems to work! πŸ™‚ Thanks πŸ™‚

      • Mahesh Makvana

        That’s great! Glad we could help you Moni!

    • Mahesh Makvana

      It looks like you’ve to start everything from very beginning as the flashing part didn’t go well. As the commands say, 0 thread succeed, that means the file wasn’t flashed on the device.

      Go back and start from the step-1.

      Hope it should work fine then!

  • Mika

    I get an error while i run the runme.bat file…bellow the lines, it’s written “error:device not found”. A little help please?

  • i’m gettin’ an error when i run the file runme.bat…bellow the lines it’s written “error:device not found”. A little help please?

    • Mahesh Makvana

      Hey Tny,

      You must have drivers for your device installed on your PC. “Device Not Found” usually indicates that you do NOT have proper drivers installed. You can head to your manufacturer’s website and download the drivers.

      Hope it helps!

  • old father thames genesis

    it appears that this guy did not explain properly enough to do this rooting.
    you do need drivers from samsung on your desktop before you start and must be windows operating system.
    not linux etc.
    may i recommend you read up more on the subject before doing this to your phone

  • Dan

    Hey guys, I was just wondering if there’s any alternative for 5.0.2.8 Cwm. Cause It had bug issue, like, After I rooted my device, I restarted it and I got stuck on the Cwm recovery menu, and can’t past through it, i managed it by updating it to 6.0.4.5, but now the problem is, I can’t go to the recovery menu, white screen comes out, but when i restart it, I could boot normally.
    Please help guys.

  • Dan

    My concern is, I would like to install a newer format of cwm that is compatible with ace plus, cause the 5.0.2.8, it just keeps going to the recovery menu, even though i reboot my phone.

  • Hicham Kazan

    • Search our site for an Unroot procedure for your device, do it, and then do this procedure again. It should work.

      Thanks!
