Root Samsung Galaxy Grand Neo

3) Enable USB debugging mode in your Samsung Galaxy Grand Neo. To do this, you have to first enable Developer options which can be done by following this path: Settings -> About -> Tap 5-7 times on Build Number. Once done, follow this path: Settings -> Developer Option -> USB Debugging (tick the box to enable it).

After finishing these prerequisites, you can proceed with the rooting procedure given below.
