Hey everyone, my phone is running 2.3.5 of Android and it is branded to Orange. My build number (and kernel version) is BVJVC. I cannot find the right cf root for me. There doesnt seem to be any for JVC. Can anyone help?

Are you planning on rooting to then flash a custom rom or do you just need root access?
If you are planning on changing roms then just flash a pre rooted firmware or one that has a root solution available.

What do you want cf-root for? If you want root to you can flash a custom ROM it doesn't really matter which one you use. If you want it to run you current stock ROM with root then it is better to run the correct one. I cannot find that one either. Good luck.

There's no cf-root for JVC. I've only found a french forum with a very tricky way to root... far easier to flash another ROM that has cf-root. But come on, let's have a little more fun... ICS!

I want to change rom. Can I just flash any rom compatible with galaxy s i9000 or do you have to have compatible kernels? I have seen tutorials where it says to flash to something specific before flashing to the final one. If it's possible can someone send me a link to a custom pre-rooted rom which I can flash straight away onto my phone?

most of the roms come with a kernel. You can then flash other kernels but these do need to be comparable. I have team oceans 4.2 for example. This comes with its own kernel but I have installed semaphore 0.9.1 which sheet a lot of testing has been the best fit for my use. Hope that makes sense. If you have something particular inn mind let us know and we can help more

This is a stock firmware and the Odin 512.pit that I use when going back to stock and root is easily applied. It is a good idea to save these on your computer if (or when) things go wrong .

Can I just flash a rom with its custom kernel over my orange stock rom and it's kernel? They don't have to be similar in any way? Also, so I don't need root access to flash a custom rom.

You will need root access to flash custom roms as most have to be flashed by cwm(which you will get when you root your phone)

This brings me back to my original problem, people told me to flash a rom with compatible CF-root, but to flash i need to root? So i am stuck in a little circle?

Or does this only apply to custom roms and not flashing stock roms?

You flash Cf-root with Odin. This gives you root. You then flash custom ROM through recovery on your phone. As mentioned above if you want root to flash custom ROM then you need root it does not really matter which cf-root you use. Just follow instructions in Cf-root thread then follow instructions from ROM thread you want to flash.

If you want to use stock ROM with cf-root then it needs to be compatible.
