Default Anyone how to root the mesmerize with gingerbread?

Just like the title says. I can't figure out how to root my Samsung Mesmerize now that I upgraded to gingerbread.

I used to use superoneclickroot when it was on eclair and froyo and it worked fine. It not longer works now that I have gingerbread.

Anyone know how to get it rooted?

Thanks in advance !

Currently, there is no way for us to root our phones on stock GB. You have to flash a pre-rooted ROM.

Actually I did this and it worked. Flash cwm with Odin then flash this in recovery. Rooted it just fine for me.

A friend of mine just got one of these. Why are there no instructions on how to root these phones?

Slo how does a person root this phone? It has Gingerbread, was purchased 3 days ago.

Thanks

I got my Mesmerize yesterday with GB on it. All I did was grabbed the latest MIUI from miui.us and placed it on the sd. Then I flashed cwm in odin, booted to recovery and flashed the miui zip.

Alright so I am seeing too many things without referenced links to anything. I have odin. I downloaded the flashable_root_package. I have no idea what cwm is.

Can someone please point me to a step by step tutorial? I have been lurking the web for a few days now, with no definitive guide or answers for the Samsung Mesmerize. Thanks in advance for the clarification and help!

There are tutorials on rootzwiki in the mesmerize forum. That's also where all the devs are now due to issues here at xda.
