Wow, from start to finish!!
Took me about 4 days at work on my breaks, but finally finished!!
Some really great information here, thanks Iron.
I have been searching and searching FOREVER to find a quality information/guide and this is the last one (of course) that I came across....Thank you so much!
I am very interested in rooting, just for pooh's and giggles....
I have updated to the new Gingerbread 2.3.4 (my SGS is an old one, got it over a year ago when they came available here).
I live in Korea, and have read that Korean phones may be a bit different than others when it comes to rooting. Have you read about this at all?
When (if) I root, is there no need to get an updated firmware again?
If I do get the update, does the phone become un-rooted and then I have to root again?
Is there any point in rooting if I already have Gingerbread 2.3.4?
I want to be able to use some of the custom roms maybe to get better use out of my phone and customize it the way I want.
How do I know what is the best way for rooting?
I see all of these JV*** numbers, but don't see them on my phone...
Firmware - 2.3.4
Kernel Version - 188.8.131.52
Build Number - GINGERBREAD.VG14
Appreciate all of help and for communicating to use new users like this....Just amazing!
