This is an update to my earlier Galaxy S Rooting tutorial, since then the official Android 2.2 has been released by Samsung and various custom firmwares are now also available to install via ODIN. In this tutorial we will be rooting the Official Android 2.2 JP6 Firmware(Indian Version), firmwares of other regions can also be rooted using this tutorial.
Unlike the previous update.zip root method, this requires flashing of Single PDA file via ODIN which is not at all complex if you follow the steps below.
Step by step guide to Root Android 2.2 Galaxy S
Please note that every firmware requires a different CF-Root file, if you are on JPH, JPM firmwares you will require their respective CF-Root files which can be downloaded from here (Thanks to Chainfire). The rooting procedure is same for all.
if done correctly:
and wait for Reboot, if your phone doesn’t restart within a few seconds or if it is stuck at “Download mode” with “Do not turn off target”, just hold power button for force restart after you have seen the “All threads Completed” in Odin, repeat the steps again. Remember to connect the Galaxy S to PC only after you’ve entered recovery mode with Odin open in PC.
That’s it, Congrats you have rooted your Galaxy S.
