[Q] Need help rooting Galaxy S 4G SGH-T959W from Wind
I have been trying to root the Samsung Galaxy S 4G from Canada's Wind Mobile. I wonder if anyone out there with Wind and this phone has any success. This phone is model SGH-T959W, which is different from the T-mobile SGH-T959V. I thought they were similar, but not really. This phone was just released in March 2012, and has the latest firmware.
Model no.: SGH-T959W
Firmwware ver.: 2.3.6
Baseband ver.: T959WUQLB6
Kernel ver.: 18.104.22.168-T959WUQLB6-CL965783
Build no.: GINGERBREAD.WUQLB6
I have successfully rooted several phones before and am good at following instructions. However, I have pretty much tried every method suggested on this Galaxy S forum with no success, including SuperOneClick, manually using ADB, Fastroot, Z4root, Samsung Kies Mini, Heimdall One-Click, etc. Some of them simply said "Failed", ADB and SuperOneClick seemed promising with progress messages for a couple minutes and then just hung forever. Kies Mini won't even recognize the phone even though it's a Samsung and I have updated all drivers.
My main goals of rooting the phone are to try to resolve the random shut-down issues that's been plaguing the Galaxy line of phones, and to run Titanium Backup. Eventually, I'd like to upgrade to ICS. I'd welcome any help.
