It would help if we knew what Android version it is running, and also if you have managed to root it in the month that this question has been up? –  Liam W Dec 9 '12 at 12:00
    
@LiamW : I have the same phone, Its running android 2.3.6 Gingerbread with kernel version 2.6.38.6 –  mataug Dec 26 '12 at 3:33

Everything you need to know about rooting and installing custom ROM on your phone.

a. Rooting for 2.2.1:

Turn on your phone
Enable Debugging at Apliccations>Programming
Connect your phone into PC via cable
Launch Super One Click 2.3.3
Click "Root"
Wait until the program will root your phone
When the process is complete turn off SOC and unplug your phone
Reboot
Now you have root!

Db. Rooting for 2.3.x (NEW METHOD!):

Download file called universal_gb_root_v25.zip and copy it to your sdcard
Turn off your phone
Press POWER+HOME BUTTON
Select update from sdcard, select the file universal_gb_root_v25.zip
After the update completed - reboot
Now you have rooted S5830

OPTIONAL Unrooting for 2.3.x:

Download file called universal_gb_unroot_v9.zip and copy it to your sdcard
Turn off your phone
Press POWER+HOME BUTTON
Select update from sdcard, select the file universal_gb_unroot_v9.zip
After the update completed - reboot
Now you have unrooted S5830[/QUOTE]

Could you give some excerpt of the linked article? We don't favor "link-only" answers, as when the link dies those answers get useless. –  Izzy Apr 4 '13 at 11:37
    
Added. But it's best if OP reads the whole link. Threads on XDA are hardly ever moved and there permalink is more or less same :) –  Karan Raj Baruah Apr 4 '13 at 13:08
    
I don't argue against reading the original article (I rather agree). But it's this site's policy to not use link-only answers, and I agree with that as well :) Thank you! –  Izzy Apr 4 '13 at 13:16
