Default [GUIDE] Rooting the Samsung Captivate Glide i927/i927r

Finally, the Captivate Glide is successfully rooted.
Credit:
  • lambgx02 who provided the Carrier IQ free kernel (by Rogers) and the insecure kernel and the Rogers rooted ROM!!!
  • ardatdat who provided the rooted ROM and the overclocked kernel
  • samsfirware.com that provided the firmware without which nothing would have been possible
  • myself, crazy tester who bricked his device
Very easy steps:
If you are on Rogers, no need to flash the kernel, it is already CarrierIQ free
  1. Download Odin 1.85
  2. Download the CarrierIQ FREE kernel (zip file) or the overClocked version of it.
  3. Download the rooted ROM (AT&T based ROM)
    or the Rogers rooted based rom (Unzip with WinRAR not 7zip)
  4. Unzip the file and keep the .tar, that the file you are going to push to your device
  5. Put your phone in Download Mode:
    • Turn off the phone
    • Press volume UP and keeping the button pressed, press the power button
    • a screen should ask you if you wanna continue - press volume up to confirm
  6. Launch Odin
  7. in PDA, select the first kernel downloaded (tar file you just unzipped)
  8. DON'T SELECTor UNSELECT ANYTHING ELSE
  9. Press the start button
  10. Wait for your phone to reboot
  11. This kernel will remove any traces of CarrierIQ, and you are now free from AT&T Spyware
    • IF AND ONLY IF this flashing fails, try the exact same steps with the insecure kernel
  12. Reboot your device into download mode again (steps above)
  13. Flash the rooted rom
  14. Go to the market and make sure you have the latest version of superuser
  15. go to superuser, check you have "su" updated

You're now rooted!

For any other questions, watch this first PLEASE:

The other thread was about trying to find root access, this is hopefully a thread on the procedure to have it in your phone

I don't think it needs locked, they need their own subforum. We can put up with them here till they get it, they need a space to develop, too.

And congrats on getting root into the kernel rom!

Nope, you should get PASS in green color if successfully flashed. Try to open odin as administrator (right click, run as administrator) and make sure your device was detected properly by windows & Odin while it is in DL mode.

Sorry my guide was not complete, the kernel is not rooted, it is a CarrierIQ free kernel but the rom is rooted.
As soon as we have the kernel rooted, I will post it here.

I know that they need their space, I already told others to leave it alone, I was just trying to keep it from being cluttered. I am sorry guys good luck!!!

I still get the same error and now my phone won't even boot.
It says to use Kies to recover but even that won't recognize the device even though windows does pick up the drivers.

I can get to either the Kies screen asking to restore a bad image or the Custom rom screen and that's it.
HELP Pls.

Hey, wait a minute.. I provided the rooted rom..

But in all honesty, that's the easy part. Those nagging Samsung, the testers risking their devices, and of course, the OP who finally found the stock firmware images deserve the credit. Not to mention sammobile.com / samfirmware.com.
