This is a Guide to Easily Root and Unroot Your Sidekick 4G

-Preparing for Root

First, if you dont have them already get the Samsung Drivers for Windows to connect your phone to your PC.

x86

Once you have the Drivers installed, proceed to rooting your device

-Rooting the Device

First you must have USB Debugging enabled. This can be done by starting at your home screen, select Settings > Applications > Development and then select USB Debugging so that a Check appears on the selection box. Then Connect it to your PC

At The Bottom Of This Page(@Shortfuse_org)You Will Find the Download for the latest SuperOneClick [v.1.9.1].
Once Downloaded, Extract the Contents of the Zip to a location of your choice.
Navigate to the Loction you extracted this folder to, Double click on the .exe file named SuperOneClick.exe.. Run the Application.

It Has a Very Basic and Simple Interface as shown Below.



Next, All you have to Do is Simply Click the Root Button
Let the App Run and it Will Let you know its Done by Giving you the Option to Test root. You can choose yes or no, your choice.

Then Reboot your Device to Complete the Root.

And thats it, your Device is Now Rooted.

Great job teddy...

Can anyone confirm that unroot works as well?
Without a working odin image or nandroid I think its important in the event of a hardware issue.

haha its no coincidence i saw it and decided it'd be a good idea to post that method here since it doesnt flash an unstable recovery like the other method up here, also hope you dont mind that i used your snapshot of the app lol

Same question: Can anyone confirm unroot? I'd love to root, but I want a way back out just in case.

i just re-rooted my phone from stock, testing the Unroot now


Edit: it seems unroot didnt work, though like mentioned above you would only want to unroot incase of hardware issue or you want t replace the phone wit T-Mo, but thats all good now cause i posted a working Odin image earlier.
