i have an android Device (Samsung Galaxy Pocket S5300) which i want to root, because i have used Ubuntu on my PC and Notebook for five or six years and i am familiar with doing different maintainace there using root, so i want to have a way to use root-privilleges on my smartphone too. I dont have a lot of experience in delevoping smartphone applications and rooting smartphones, so i need a bit help.
After a bit reading, i read that i should download an update.zip file, which i should select in the recovery mode.
I read this blog: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2365697 where they say i should download an update.zip from mediafire. I downloaded it to my PC and had a look into it and could found the various binaries that i need to be installed (su, busybox, superuser.apk etc.)
Now i have a question: do i really need to download an update.zip from mediafire, where i don't know what it comes from? The reason I'm worried is that i don't know who has created it and have no really posibility to check if the binaries i will execute are not compromised and have no viruses etc... i am a bit scared to execute binaries somewhere form the web (with root pivilleagues) where i don't know if they are to be trusted and to be sure that they are no virusus, spyware etc...
