Samsung Moment was launched years ago with the now-obsolete version of Android. While many appreciated the features of the phone when it got launched, there’re still some users who use it as their daily driver. If you’re one of those users, you may want to root your device for more freedom and more things to do, at least when your phone is about to die (sorry if it hurt your feelings for your phone!).

Here’s what you need to do to root your Samsung Moment:
