Rooting can be difficult for some users as it requires several steps like first flashing a custom recovery image and then installing the SuperSU app. This procedure sometimes fails because the stock recovery comes back even after flashing the custom recovery. This procedure is time consuming. But in this tutorial I will teach you the easiest way to root your galaxy grand 2, that will root it in one go. You do not have to flash custom recovery and install ROM manager and SuperSU app because everything is done for you by the developers in form of a pre-rooted android ROM for galaxy grand 2 which already contains custom recovery. You just have to flash this pre-rooted ROM on your galaxy grand 2 via ODIN to successfully root it in one go.
This pre-rooted android OS for galaxy grand 2 is developed by xda developers. However it is not the official Samsung ROM but it is based on the stock android 4.3 rom that has the same UI and style as that of stock ROM, also this is not a custom rom.

    1. First of all download the GApps for gennext rom. Place the zip on sdcard. Goto recovery mode and choose 'Install zip from sdcard' grab the GApps zip and flash it. Its so simple. For GApps search XDA forum.
