I am VERY unhappy with my Galaxy S. I loved it when I first got it, 18 months on, several updates later, I want to break it. Ever since I upgraded to 2.3.3 there have been so many issues/problems/things I just DON'T like at all! I now officially do not like this phone.
My friend has told me to root my phone and change the firmware to a more acceptable one? They said it's the good thing about Android, if you don't like it, change it. Possibly I could downgrade back to one I liked before? Or maybe I could upgrade to something new?
If it helps, my phone is O2 branded (i bought it in the O2 shop and it has a millennium dome background)
I live in the UK.
Kernel: 220.127.116.11-I9000XWJHV-CL18483 root@DELL101 #2
(I know all this will mean something to someone out there...)
Basically, can someone please explain simply HOW to root my phone, what do I need? (i've heard of Odin? Does that make sense?) is it worth it? What acceptable firmwares are available in my country? I am not a technical retard, but I am really not clued up on this sort of thing so any help would be appreciated please.
