I am no pro, so please don’t treat me like one 😛
I just learnt and tried to make a simple video for you guys!
May noobs unite? 😛
This is the best way to root your phone, fast painlessly, and won’t be outdated like the Z4 market app.
This is the base of anything you want to do on your phone. Be it adding lagfixes or playing around with your CPU voltage.
Root is a must, and DOES NOT change any settings on your phone. Just “unlocks it” so to speak.
Just how you unlock SIM cards, this unlocks the hardware and software on your phone, it doesn’t add anything extra to it. Adding extra stuff come after 🙂
I’ve been searching the web for an easy video so i can root my phone and then unlock it, and i have found nothing. By far yours is the best.
Just wanted to make sure before i start.
i have a SGS and SGS II running on official 2.3.3 Can i use your methods to root and unlock both of them.
you’re a gr8 help
Indeed you can 🙂
Although unlocking is something else/different to rooting.
Unlocking is for carriers
Rooting is to enable it to do cool stuff
My end suggestion would be nowadays, is to just flash a custom kernel, like CF root – which is as stock as you can get, but ha CWM + root
Will this work on an SAMSUNG FASCINATE ICH-i500 (verizon) I am running android 2.3.5 on kernel 18.104.22.168? stock never rooted only the samsung over the air updates.
I’m not sure dude – sorry
I’m having a lot of trouble finding the download.
its on XDA
Sorry, but the program said “5869 could not load needed library ‘libdiskconfig.so’ for ‘./zergRush’ (load_library: Library ‘libdiskconfig.so’ not found)CANNOT LINK EXECUTABLE” And it won’t root. I have a Samsung Galaxy S, did i do something wrong?
Why are you rooting :)?
I might suggest just flashing a kernel instead.
helo mr. totallydubbed!~
i hope you can help me T_T

I have bought a at&t captivate which of course is locked. I paid a few sites, which have all given me a refund because they can not find my unlock code. All I would like to do is obtain the unlock code for my phone. Yet for some reason I am not able to find the link to ROOT my phone. I understood from your informative videos that one must root the phone before using any of the apps from the andriod market which allows you to obtain the code. Would you please direct me to an exact link where i can download the root file please. I tried the mega upload link and it doesn’t work at all. I am a full time Currency trader, and work a 9 to 5 so 16 hours of my day is basically in front of the computer. I turly need some assistance with this and it would be more then a pleasure to donate if you help me unlock this phone. Thanks in advance… ALEX
The main problem is:
That you have a captivate, and I have the i9000…
My suggestion to root, would be to flash a CAPTIVATE kernel – I can’t emphasise this enough – a CAPTIVATE, not a i9000 kernel, which is on your CURRENT PDA/ROM
If you check your phone – in settings, about, you should be able to see baseband (that’s the modem), and you should be able to see BUILD NUMBER & FIRMWARE VERSION – if you tell me them maybe I can TRY to assist you – but as i said, the biggest thing here, is that your on a captivate – so the thing I DO, might differ from what YOU DO.
what is the address of the file. i cant find it anywhere
My computer is running windows 7 with security essentials, and it thinks its a virus and deletes the program for rooting. Why does my computer think that?? Is it a virus??
I wouldn’t worry – that’s just window,s being windows.
my computer is doing that too, how do i download it if it keeps getting quarantined?
Disable the anti-virus for a second and then do it.
Thats what I thought. So I tried the program and it stops working at step 7 and on the right side its says cant mount and ends. It never gets to installing superuser. Whats up with that?
No idea – i’ve heard some people report it too :/
My suggestion is to try again – and make sure you have SU installed, beforehand.
why does my pc hang on step 2? is it still usable? Help me plssss
Yes just disconnect it and re-enter download mode, sometimes ODIN does that. (i presume it hasn’t even started downloading/flashing)
i tried it and it gets stuck on step 7 shell command and it says waiting for device then it doesnt respond please email me and help me
Unplug it, and replug it – in other words try again :)!
does this work on the samsung galaxy s vibrant sgh-t959
I don’t know
hey, can this work on android version 2.3.6?
It should do yes
i can root my phone but when i try to allow non market apps my program doesnt responce anymore when it is checking for shell root… can you help me with this?
try clearing the cache of the market.
In terms of checking shell root – install and run superuser, and some might need busybox installed too (like GPS aids)
ehm… i had rooted my device…. but now i see thet it failed… its stops by step #7
Try it again – and if it already rooted, you should download SU from the market.
Is there a program like this that works on a MAC?
are there any dangers with rooting??
No dangers of rooting, and heimdall for macs
i just got the samsung galaxy s and i want to root it, but you keep suggesting flashing a kernel and i would love your opinion on whats the better option. I want my phone to run faster and have access to all these apps that everyone talks about, but i just need help i’m not very good with this phone yet.
I firstly suggest playing with your phone for a week, before doing anything.
Secondly, actually reading and watching videos on what rooting, flashing, ROMs, kernels etc do, before touching anything.
Finally, I would suggest a kernel, like CF ROOT, to get the BASICS.
HI, when i put my samsung galaxy s 4g into the mode it wont connect to my computer. is there a softwhere i have to download to get my phone to connect?
You need to make sure you have the drivers. However, i don’t know about the 4g.
hi i have recently brought my samsung galaxy s advance. i wanted to ask that i have got the phone with internet settings from virgin and other settings. i want to know whether after i root my fone will all these settings go and go off the virgin mobile firmware? i don’t know if i should flash my phone.
Rooting won’t cause anything. However flashing another rom or kernel will.
is there a way i can protect my google wallet? and how can i un- root my galaxy s advance (xxld1).
No idea about the advance, and never used g wallet.
where is the link that i can DL the superoneclick method??
more power dude
It should be on xda, and more so in this post…
hi its me again… when i trying to start to root my phone the program not responding is that normal??
im using GT-i9003
firmware version 2.3.5
basehand version I9003DXKP7
kernel version 126.96.36.199-CL669569 root@DELL153 #1
build number GINGERBREAD.DXKP9
please help thanks in advance
You have to make SURE that the CF root is MADE for the i9003.
I thought you were talking about the i9000
Never flash anything that’s not made for your phone. I mean the i9003
so i cant root my phone using your program??
what is your advice to root my phone??
and sorry what is CF stands for?? sorry im a noob here…
I have no idea for your phone sorry.
please tell me how to root samsung galaxy s advance…
android 2.3.6….please help me…
if u know emel me…
Can’t help you with the advance sorry
Hy.Its fails at step7.galaxy s1 2.2…((fail=crash..My phone and the program too)HELP
I don’t know why it did – you should try again, and if it doesn’t boot…well you’ll have more problems on your hands
Hello.I have a samsung galaxy s with android 2.3.3 and i try to rooted but it stuck on “starting ADB server”!What does that mean?!Heeeelp plz!
Make sure you are doing it correctly.
I would suggest just going via CF root, and installing that instead of doing this method.
Ok i have already download odin.Now i just need the kernel…but i have no idea what is the right one for my situation.I have 2.3.3.And the other thing is how we put the kernel on odin.Cause when i unzipe one file is an ”zImage”….?
Shit shit shit something whent wrong!I did the root with odin,i had the right kernel,odin say pass but when phone try to open a voice says ” not enough space on sd card” and it cant open WTF?Heeeeelp bro!
Reflash rom, and make sure the version is correct. Go for cf root, and more so, make sure you leave it as a .tar or .md5, do not extract that further.
ok cause i am a noobie i press power button+volume up+home button and i see a menu with some choises.So mayby i should press wipe data/reset factory settings.You know to go back to the previous situation?!
And the bad thing is that i havent saved the rom before the root so now i think my only choise is go back to the factory status.
If you do that, it will wipe your phone. Possibly you internal storage too (internal sd card)
Yea i did it actually.Now my phone its running 2.3.6 with baseband version:I9000XDJV1.I ll try again to root it but i dont know which is the right kernel so a link with the exact kernel would be awsome!Anyway i want to thank you for your time you give to my problem:)
Just look up CF root, and look for the one that corresponds to the PDA, when you type in *#1234# in your dialler 😉
hi, thanks for your method it look great but I have a problem with superoneclick, it block at starting ADB Server, have you an idea?
1) Killing ADB Server => dameon not running . starting it now on port 5037, what is it?
2) Starting ADB.. => dameon started successfully but nothing happen
Sorry not really sure. I suggest flashing cf root via odin.
ok I’ll take a look on odin and what do you think about Z4root?
Never tried mate.
i rooted my phone before but i had to get a new one, and the way i used to do it did not work, so i watched the vid followed the instructions and IT WORKED!!!! so THANK YOU so very much for the tutorial… ill be sure ro share this page 😀
My pleasure 🙂
superoneclick.exe .NET Framework Initialization Error
“Unable to find the runtime to run this application”
this dialogue box appear when try to open superoneclick.exe
fixed .net issue
but now the process helds at step #5 and goes no further..
Sorry don’t know
I downloaded and extracted everything alright but when i try rooting my device after following all of your instructions it says unknown device and another error and never roots my galaxy s help me please!
If it doesn’t work, then try going via the CF root way.
I seem to have that affect on people…haha

Thanks in advance for helping me out..
I honestly don’t know – look around on XDA.
Perhaps ur superoneclick was corrupted. If ur rooting wit superoneclick stops at step 7 similar wit freeman above, wat solved my issue was I just used another computer with a different superoneclick and…voila! Dnt knw y but my problem bcame history. I am talking abt samsung galaxy s.
tried rooting and froze on step 7 and completely wiped all memory on my sdcard how can i get all my data back??
If you wiped your SD card, you won’t get anything back!
will these steps work with the samsung galaxy s sgh-t959 running 2.3.6?
or does it have to be stock android version??
will this work on samasung galaxy s korean made(SHW-M110S)
i have a sgh-1547c base band 1547cvlamc1 kernel version 3.0.31-928639 i need to root this thing also do i unlock first do you know where to get unlock for free for this also its been black listed imei number change but i have to root it first befor i can do that help me please
No idea I don’t know that phone. People keep asking these questions about other phones, I have no idea.
Is it normal if I stuck on step 7 for like…. an hour?
Here’s the image : http://imageshack.com/a/img22/6153/bdyj.png
Forgot to mention that I use Samsung Galaxy S i9000
No that’s not normal. But it happens sometimes. Just unplug and retry.
