Hi!

This kernel enables custom boot animations (/system/media/sanim.zip), adb root, init.d support, runs a script to auto-root your /system partition, and then you're on your merry way

You may need the USB Drivers available here. (Support & Downloads for SGH-I717)

Once the USB Drivers are installed, power off the phone, then hold volume down and power it on, you'll get a screen asking you to hit vol up to continue, do so. This puts the phone in download mode.

Stick the provided pda.tar in the PDA box of Odin3 1.85, flash away!

Install Superuser from the market after booting.

Note that this will increase your flash counter, which is presumably used by Samsung as a reason to decline warranty service (not aware of any reports of this occuring yet...?)

Don't forget the donate link in my signature if you found this useful and want to motivate me to work on overclock/undervolt

This should work on the Canadian versions, right? Or would this be AT&T specific?

@goalcam:
The kernel is built from AT&T source. I haven't examined the Canadian source yet, I'll take a look and see if it'll work.

@bkeaver:
Appreciated!

Any chance a jig from the SG2 will reset the counter?

More than likely not, due to the bootloader revision.. however since my counter is already up in the dozens I can look at putting some time into finding where the counter is stored, so that we can wipe it at will
