Just about to ask the same
I just don't have the courage to try rooting my wife's phone as it's been with us just less than a week.

Unhappy
Tried so far (without success):
zergRush -> failure (operation not permitted)
DooMLoRD_v3_ROOT-zergRush-busybox-su -> failure
SuperOneClick v2.3.3 -> failure
adb reboot recovery (stock recovery), install update from sdcard, Universal_GB_ROOT.zip -> failure

My S5690 is running Android 2.3.6
baseband: S5690XXKL3
kernel: 2.6.35.7 official.alkon@androide #25
version number: GINGERBREAD.XXKL3
CSC: S5690OXFKL2
simlocked on: orange romania

Please help!
My intention is to actually remove the SIM lock, but I need access to nv_data.bin in order to search for the unlock code.

Regards.

I've finally managed to root the son of a bitch! I used the Universal GB Root kit but with a small modification: I've added the GT-S5690 phone model to the getprop statements at the beginning of the file "META-INF\com\google\android\updater-script" assuming that it should work as well on this Samsung model. Well... it did work!

Here is the patched version of Universal GB Root:
Universal_GB_ROOT_v5_patched_for_S5690.zip
Mirror:
http://uploading.com/files/8m63916d/...for_S5690.zip/

Here is the code (in red) that I've added to the "META-INF\com\google\android\updater-script":
Code:
       getprop("ro.product.product") == "GT-B7510" ||
       getprop("ro.product.device") == "GT-S5690" ||
       getprop("ro.build.product") == "GT-S5690"
       );
Please post some feedback here, whether you succeed or not to root the phone using this workaround. I will let StoneBoyTony know about this, so he can integrate it in the official release of the Universal GB Root tool, if the solution proves to be stable and usable (so far I am the first to confirm that it works).

Regards,
Cristian

It seems that you have a newer fw version (LA6 = 2012 january build #6). I have KL3 (that is 2011 december build #3). But it should make no difference. Only the recovery program can possibly affect the install process. My Xcover came with the "Android system recovery 3e" version installed (check the top line of text while in recovery).

Please post the error messages that you encounter while installing the update.

Multumesc/thanks!

No need to rename the Universal_GB_ROOT_v5_patched_for_S5690.zip to update.zip (at least in my case).


TO ALL:
- in order to access the standard recovery program that came with the phone, you can fire up an "adb reboot recovery" command with the phone connected via micro-usb cable AND the "USB debugging" option enabled;
- I've also applied the UNROOT update and it also worked: the root access was removed (sqlite3, su*, sh, busybox and the Superuser.apk were removed) .
