    Sorry guys. No root method yet. This is a placeholder. I'll try a few existing root methods and report back. Hopefully this post will turn into a tutorial.

    Have to get the right people on the right forum :-).

    Let's start speaking specifically of what techniques were used. Did you try some stuff that was meant for like the S4 for example?

    The Galaxy Admire 2 seems to have the same specs as the Galaxy S3 Mini unless I'm reading bad info. I'm going to try to root the Admire 2 using Galaxy S3 Mini method.


    EDIT: Nevermind, its the same as the Galaxy Axiom for U.S. Cellular

    It happened with me in the beginning too. Make sure the drivers are installed and USB debugging is enabled. If you have to, disconnect the USB and plug it back in right before hitting the button. Restart the device if needed and then try rebooting your computer if that doesn't work.

    Check device manager to see if you have the device connected. Should look like this:
