Default [Q] Samsung Illusion SCH-i110 Rooting / ROMs

I have scoured the Internet for information regarding any custom work for this phone.

I stumbled upon samsungillusionforum dot com, which is a dead forum with ancient posts and near zero activity. It seems to be an alias to samsungfascinateforum dot com. Why anybody would set a forum up in this manner is beyond me.

Last month I bought the Verizon Wireless Samsung Illusion SCH-i110. I waited around a month to see if anybody would post any information regarding rooting/ROMs for this phone to no avail.

I plan on trying SuperOneClick to root the phone, but as for Custom ROMS I don't know what is out there.

I would appreciate any and all information anybody has regarding ongoing customization work for the Verizon Wireless Samsung Illusion SCH-i110 running Android 2.3.5.

Thanks for taking the time to read this.

I am in the same boat here... My girlfriend recently picked one up and hates all the VZW apps that are installed and we want to remove them and tweak the system a bit. I have scoured through the interwebs for close to 2 weeks trying to find anything that can root this phone. Unfortunately, anything out there as far as I can tell does not work... Can anybody please help with this?

Same here. Starting to think no one will ever root this phone. It boggles the mind that there is an unrootable android phone on the market. :(

I was an idiot to suggest to my wife she get this phone from Verizon - I just assumed it was going to be a quick root for this cheap phone and I'd get all that Verizon crap off of it and it'd run great...

Looks like it ain't never going to happen.

did you try ZergRush? http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1296916

It's not that it's unrootable, it's just no one spends time rooting/modding prepaid phones... I'd be willing to work on it but I would need a tester, someone who can use ADB

I personally have tried everything including ADB to root this device. It isn't a prepaid phone. It is a contract phone through VZW

Just wondering if anyone has tried getting root by using Unlock Root from unlockroot dot com?

I am also interested in any progress on this phone.

I have the straight talk version S720C Samsung Proclaim which runs on Verizon service.

I assume that once a root for the paid Verizion is working that it should work as well on the Proclaim?

I got this for my daughter and being able to wifi teather would be great
