Samsung Galaxy S i9000 Rooted

The folks over at Samdroid have successfully rooted  Samsung’s, latest smartphone, Galaxy S i9000.  Rooting the phone allows you to install third party applications and custom ROM’s. Rooting a phone comes with a customary warning that there is a chance that things may go wrong and you may brick your phone. But for the adventurous, here is how you root the Galaxy S i9000. 

How to install LK2.xx

  1. Download the i9000_Kernel_LK9_01b9.7z
  2. Unzip the package
  3. Flash with Odin3 as PDA file ( if you want help with this, refer one of their previous posts )

If things don’t go as planned, you can flash the original kernel from JF2

Please leave your comments below and let us know how it went.
