Root Samsung Galaxy Spica i5700 With LeshaK’s Kernel

As promised, I am back with a complete, step-by-step guide to rooting Samsung’s Galaxy Spica/Lite/Portal i5700 Android handset, using LeshaK’s Kernel Spica v.LK2.02. Not only is this root easy without any complex commands, but also it brings nicety such as full root, su+Superuser, support for ext2, ext3 and ext4 SD card partitions, recovery mode, etc.

A few things before I begin with the walkthrough. First, the whole credit for this guide, the kernel used and everything else goes to LeshaK, the administrator of Samdroid forum. I have just simplified his guide for average users, since most of the forum is in Russian. Second, this guide assumes that your device is running on firmware 2.1, any version above JC3, and you know how to use Odin. If you want to know how to upgrade your firmware, check out our 2.1 update guide for Spica.

Third, this guide also assumes that your Samsung Android drivers (USB modem and Composite device) are properly installed, and that you have Android Debug Bridge (adb) properly configured. If not, check our the 2.1 update guide for drivers, and tutorial for setting up adb.

Please remember that any modifications to your firmware are potentially dangerous, and while they reward greatly, you must proceed at your own risk. If you don’t know what you are doing, it is advisable to avoid rather than having a bricked device. You have been warned!

This process will not delete any of your files or settings, both in SD card and internal memory.

Without further ado, here’s how to gain root and flash LeshaK’s kernel 2.02.

To begin with, download these two files.

  1. LK2-02-1_update.zip
  2. i5700_LK2-02_PDA.zip

Also download the Odin Multiloader for Android here if you don’t have it already. You need the spica_jc3.ops file for this guide, which we have bundled with Odin.

Mount your SD card, and place LK2-02-1_update.zip in the root of SD card (it should be inside the root folder of the card, not any subfolder). See the screenshot below.

memory card update placement

Unmount the SD card in Windows, turn phone off and remove your SIM card just to be safe. Let the SD card remain inserted, and put the device in Download Mode by pressing and holding Volume Down + Camera + Call End keys. The phone screen should look like this:

Download Mode

Your phone should not be connected with the PC at this time via USB cable. Run Odin as administrator, and load the extracted i5700_LK2-02_PDA.tar file as PDA in Odin. Load spica_jc3.ops as the OPS file. You may need to click Reset Files once before Odin will clear previous settings. Make sure your selections match the screenshot below.


With your device in Download Mode, attach it to the PC via USB cable. The message box will now show the Added and Detected message, as shown above. If all is set and handset has been detected, click the Start button to begin flashing the new kernel to the device.


Wait for the flash to finish until the following screen appears. The device will reboot during this time and enter recovery mode.


To be safe, wait for the process to finish entirely, which shall be indicated by a ‘PASS’ replacing the ‘RESET’ message.


Meanwhile, your phone’s screen will be showing the following image.


Use the D-pad to move up and down between options. Select ‘Apply any zip from SD’ and press OK button. The next screen will show all the zip files present in the root of your SD card. Select the one indicated in the screenshot below, and press OK.


You will be asked for confirmation to install the update. Press the Home button to confirm.


The update will install, delete some files, copy some more, and after about a minute you will see the following screen.


Reboot the device by either clicking OK on Root system now, or press the Home + Back keys together. The device will reboot once more and that’s it: you have successfully rooted your Spica. Go to Settings > About Phone on your device and scroll down to verify the new kernel.

phone status

You may also run the adb command to verify su status, indicated by the command prompt showing ‘#’ instead of ‘$’ when you access the shell.


With LeshaK’s Kernel 2.02, you get the following advantages (as mentioned on the Samdroid forum)

1. Fully rebuilds Spica Linux Kernel from Samsung sources, plus:
– full root in adb (you can use cp etc, not only cat)
– root – su+Superuser
– add Netfilter/iptables (Walldroid, Wifi Tether)
– support ext2/ext3/ext4
– cifs (smb – support windows network shares)
– squashfs (for recovery utils)

2. Recovery
– apply update.zip files (android install/update system)
– samdroid backup – create .tar file (system + data), restore via Odin
– wipe (data, cache, dalvik-cache)
– you can repartition your SD card on 2 partitions FAT32 + ext2

3. Apps2sd based on CyanogenMod apps2sd
– move applications from internal memory to SD card with two partitions (FAT32 + ext2/3/4)

Soon I will come up with a guide on configuring and using apps2sd on Spica. Meanwhile, happy rooting and good luck. Please use this process with care, we are not responsible for bricked devices. Feedback, questions and general comments are greatly appreciated.

    I’m doing all the steps as they are mentioned but when I get to the Odin step, I execute Odin as admin. (OK!), I load OPS (OK!), I load PDA (i5700_LK2-02_PDA.tar) (ok) but when I press RESET the PDA field is cleared again and in the space where it was to be the 1 (COM 5) in yellow, nothing!!!

    What am I doing wrong???

  22. Hi
    can someone help me? i cant connect my phone in download mode to PC. I try it in another PC but it doesnt connect.
    Mobile phone info:
    firmware version: 2.1-update1
    Baseband version: i570EXXJC1
    Build number: ECLAIR.XXJCF
    Kernel version: 2.6.29 root@SE-S610 #2

    If you know how to repair it pls send email to juraj.tomecek7@gmail.com thx 🙂


  24. If I were to not want this anymore how would I be able to get rid of it? Would i just go on the SD card and remove the .zip file?

    • No, the file copied to the SD card is used for installation. Once installed, removing that file won’t remove the installation. You will have to find another kernel like the stock kernel and install that to get the device back to the way it was.

  25. Nothing to do for this, just go in samsung Authorized service center and asked him about your problem they shawl your problem within a minute. Trust me. Thnx

  26. worked for me

    I wonder if somebody else has the same problem with me, after rooting and install M900 wifi tether, my wifi does not start anymore, it always “unable to start wifi”.
    Please share with me how to solve this case.

  40. Thank you so much for this step by step guide in rooting spica. The images helped a lot for newbies like me, specially those who are not that so tech savvy (both in the android and PC programs). I followed every step to the letter including the steps needed (adb and the samsung android), and voila – I have a rooted spica as of last night.

    I will await your promise: “…Soon I will come up with a guide on configuring and using apps2sd on Spica…”

    Again, thanks for helping this newbie.

  42. hi, i followed the steps and all seemed to work fine until after it reset it doesn’t get past the samdroid loading page. Is it bricked? what should i do?

    • There is nothing to worry. Just boot into recovery and do a factory reset, ie, wipe cache and data.

  43. Hi Please help.
    My Spica firmware version is i570EDDJC5
    I have rooted my spica successfully using LeshaK’s kernel 2.02 from using this guide
    But I don’t see any SamdroidTools icon in app drawer. There is only Superuser Whitelist icon in app drawer.
    1. How to get SamdroidTools icon?
    2. where to get update.zip file which is used in Recovery? Because when i try to download it from Recovery I get nothing.
    3. Also when I install Live wallpapers and go to Home screen and browse wallpapers list I don’t find Live wallpapers there in the list?

    Now My spica’s firmware is:

    Baseband version : i570EDDJC5
    Kernel version : 2.6.29 leshak@i5700-dev7 #65
    Build number : Leshak’s Kernel v.LK2.01.1

    Please help its urgent because my phone is running out of internal memory, apps2sd is required. Also I need Live wallpapers.

    Baseband Version- i570EDDJC5
    can i follow your guide for my baseband version and please tell me which baseband version is latest and suitable for root by leshak and where did i find it……

  45. What a wonderful and excellent tutorial. I made it easily with your brilliant guide. Just a litte bit problem after rooted, many of my previous applications which was working well now are forced close. Even some small aplication like k9 or launcher. Could you please help me why and how to fix it? Or should I unroot it? But how?

  46. I am not able to connect my Galxy spica android 1.5 to my laptop.
    I want to take contact back up.
    But after connecting device, message comes “device is unsupported”

    Great guide but i’m having a problem. I’m running JD4 and when i choose the LK2.02.1.update.zip on start-up the phone displays this message: e:can’t find update script – aborted.

    How can I resolve this? I had to flash the old PDA back to get the phone working again.

    • just install samdriod kitchen mod from samdriod forums.Apply it to ur SD card as u applied the LK2.01.1(Apply any zip from sd).System recovery mode can be started by pressing the volume down+call initiating+call ending or power on-off buttons.and get the full use of live wallpaper,helixlauncher,3D galary and much more……Dont forget to click wipe data-catche option first …than click to create partition of u r choice ,and than apply any zip from sd( samdriod mod )…..reboot by pressing ok….

  69. Hi and thank you for this great tutorial, clear and concise.

    I am new to rooting and are wondering if there is a way to “unroot”, getting the phone back to original shape so to speak.

    Tutorial or link to info is much appreciated 🙂

  70. Just rooted my Galaxy Spica with your instructions.
    It worked like a charm.
    The guide was clear and to the point.
    Can u tell me how I can install LiveWallpapers and Apps2SD now?

  71. Instructions were very clear and easy to follow.
    Just completed successfully rooting my Spica.
    Will eagerly await your next tutorial.
    Good job and more power !

  72. Hey i flashed to the latest firmware JD1..n everything you told worked like a charm.
    but what is the real use of rooting?
    tell us about apps2sd soon..
    n can you also tell how to put livewallpapers..?

    • oops, I just noticed that you have already upgraded and rooted. congratulations!

      The main purpose of rooting is to gain full access to your device’s operating system. Since Android is based on Linux, a root level access means you can change whatever you like in the file system, for example, removing unwanted system-default applications like Myspace.apk, using things like Apps2SD, Live Wallpapers, install custom mods etc.

      As for Apps2SD, the guide is coming very soon. Basically, LeshaK’s kernel already has apps2sd built in, all it needs is to be enabled. It’s the ‘how to’ that needs some elaboration, and you will get that in the guide.

      Personally, with the Froyo announcement, I am pretty excited and hoping samsung will bring it to the Spica. You won’t even be needing apps2sd after that, although rooting would still remain a cool option 🙂

      thanks for reading
