I've made 2 update files to Root and Unroot i9001 from Recovery Mode

Pro:
  • Any ROM for i9001
  • Without Odin and Multidownloader
  • Easy unroot

Short Howto

WARNING!
You are responsible for your Phone! Blah Blah Blah... I am not responsible for your bricked phones.


To ROOT
  1. Put Root-i9001-Signed.zip into internal sdcard
  2. Reboot into Recovery mode (see here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...5&postcount=19 thanks to RiverSource)
  3. Use Volume buttons to choose apply update from sdcard in Recovery Menu.
  4. Press Home button to submit.
  5. Use Volume buttons to choose Root-i9001-Signed.zip on sdcard
  6. Press Home button to start update.
  7. 2 seconds and Root is installed.
  8. Choose reboot system now and press Home button to reboot your phone.


To UNROOT
  1. Put UnRoot-i9001-Signed.zip into internal sdcard
  2. Reboot into Recovery mode
  3. Use Volume buttons to choose apply update from sdcard in Recovery Menu.
  4. Press Home button to submit.
  5. Use Volume buttons to choose UnRoot-i9001-Signed.zip on sdcard
  6. Press Home button to start update.
  7. 1 second and Root is gone.
  8. Choose reboot system now and press Home button to reboot your phone.



UPDATE 09.09.2011

Please use this way to Recovery Mode: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...5&postcount=19 thanks to RiverSource


The old way
Do not use it.
For easy reboot into Recovery Mode.
I've made Easy Reboot Recovery.zip. It contains adb.exe, 2 dl from Adroid SDK, and RebootRecovery.bat.

To reboot into Recovery Mode make sure that drivers for phone are installed.

Enable USB Debugging (Phone Setting > Applications >Development > USB Debugging should be checked)

Connect your phone to PC with USB cable and run RebootRecovery.bat
The phone will reboot into Recovery mode.
When you see white box with an arrow and droid, Press Menu button to open Recovery menu.

Sry for not trusting u =P
I'd try out by myself but i dont own the i9001.

So if i root her phone and anything is not workin as ill explain, im doomed

Thumbs up Root from recovery menu
I just tried this method with the I9001XXKP4 ROM and it worked fine.
SuperUser was installed, and I'm now restoring my apps+settings with Titanium.

It was actually an easy root method, just don't forget to plug in your USB cable before you press [VolUp + Home + Power]

Kudos + thanks for KeksKlip !

Hi.

I tried this > copied the root file to my micro-sd card, then turn off the phone and power up again with volup+home+pwr and my phone goes into RAM DUMP MODE because of a forced upload?

After removing the battery phone restarts as normal. What to do to root?

Check the drivers...i don't think your device drivers are installed.

You need phone drivers for USB
You should install Samsung Kies
or just Drivers google for "SAMSUNG_USB_Driver_for_Mobile_Phones.exe"

Sorry, it's not aloud me to post links
