Dont know if this helps but on my sgs continuum I had to use SOC twice (soc-reboot-soc 2nd-reboot=superuser)...they should rename it super2click haha....

Sent from my XDA Android-Its more than a continuum...

Root Android 2.1 - 2.3.7:

1)Download *.rar, extract update.zip

2)Copy update.zip to SD-Card

3)Run Clockworkmod

4)Select to "apply update from sdcard"

5)Reboot, Root !


A few questions about the 5 steps you listed:

1) OK. Got that...

2) Do you mean copy update.zip to the internal SD-card? If so; how do I do that?

3) What's Clockworkmod? And how do I run it?

4) I assume that when I run Clockworkmod I'll find an option "apply update from sdcard"? And I need to click on it?

5) This I get; power down my Galaxy,and restart.....

So 1 and 5 are clear. Clould you please give more info on 2, 3,and 4?

User point of view Galaxy is better, but when the updates is concerned, Samsung did not give any importance to the S users. I hate samsung for this reason.

Firstly samsung did not provide ICS update to all the Galaxy S users world wide and after a big bang crowd, it released a value pack of the ICS, that's a promo version of the ICS to get the attention.

So we Galaxy S lets be at our own OS not get diverted towards the ICS, The ICS is not a big thing to experience with.

Hello all


I have just been given an Australian Galaxy S (I9000) and have had some trouble getting root - I wonder if there is a root for it as the numbers seem diferent to the ones in europe that I see on here.



Firmware 2.2

Baseband I9000DTJP3

Kernal version

[email protected]#7

Build Number FROYO.DTJP5


Can anyone point me in the right direction to how I can root and what can be done to the phone after that to improve is operation?
