Hi Guys,

I am an IT person, but totally new to Android. I am having Samsung Galaxy S 4G (T959v) running GingerBread (2.3.6).

I had upgraded from Froyo to GingerBread using Kies mini... and since that I am facing a lot of issues running... like slow responsiveness, phone hangs, some times unable to make calls, very high RAM usage etc...

So to fix these issues, I am thinking to install custom ROM (Jelly Bean 4.3 - CyanogenMod 10.2). But I don't know how to do that.

What I read on thread is it first needs to ROOT the device, but I am not sure how to ROOT the device.

Please help me to ROOT the device in easy steps and install custom ROM.. (Off course without bricking my device )

Thanks.

Look at the second link in my signature. Instead of flashing the whole package just flash AntonX's kernel. Read the first couple of posts in the Heimdal thread and you will hopefully know what I am referring to.

From there, follow the directions in the OP of the ROM thread that you would like to flash. The OP will also tell you what works and does not work for that ROM.

You can find the Wiki, FAQ, lumin30's guide, and more here.

Like I said before, you have to search and read.
