Hey!

I have a Samsung Galaxy S I9070 Advance, and I would like to get a boot.img (kernel) of this phone for rooting purposes. I've been searching all around the web for a rooting method that would work on this phone, and as far as I know now, is that only thing that would work is flashing insecure kernel, which enables root access. But the problem is there is no kernel source out yet. So my question is, if there is any possibility to get boot.img directly from a phone. Or If I can maybe somehow extract this from official firmware. I have firmware in .tar which is meant to flash with Odin. The tar file includes cache.img.md5, hidden.img.md5, kernel.bin.md5, modem.bin.md5 and system.img.md5. If someone could give me some advice, of how to start on this thing. I was already trying with dsixda kitchen with no success. Any kind of advice or guide will be appreciated:).

You can grab the boot.img from any firmware file you can download for the device.
