Default How to root Samsung S 4G 2.3.6

I am using this so yes it works.
Download included at the bottom if your phone bricks use ODIN to unbrick it.
WARNING I WILL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE FOR YOUR PHONE GETTING BRICKED USE AT YOUR OWN RISK!!!
Tools to update your Samsung Galaxy S 4G to GB 2.3.6 and root it.

1) Install phone drivers on your 32or64-bit Windows machine
2) Install Odin
3) Restart phone in Download Mode and connect to USB
4) Load GB Rom either 2.3.5 or 2.3.6 to 'PDA' in Odin and press start
5) Restart phone in Download Mode and connect to USB
6) Load 1st Root Rom to 'PDA' in Odin and press start (phone will be in boot loop after this step. Do a battery pull and)
7) Restart phone in Download Mode and connect to USB
8) Load 2nd Root Rom in Odin and press start

This will update your Samsung Galaxy S 4G to GB 2.3.6 and root it.

UPDATES:
Added 2.6.2.rom from http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...59&postcount=1

Rooting:

Or for using the "alt-root" directory:

PIT&CSC included in download
The only problem I'm having with this root is I can't get Wi-Fi to work.
To fix your Wi-Fi issues install this using your phone to do it so it installs in onto your SD card Valhalla v1.3.2

Any reason why you used the KJ5 rom instead of the newer KJ6 that most roms are being based off right now?

Could cause a bit of hesitation with the confusion.

Nobody said you did anything wrong. It only caused a bit of confusion on my part, making me hesitant on trying your method.
Btw, if you're phone is rooted there are free screenshot apps in the market.
