i think i know...maybe qzem is trying to get it work on Galaxy S Advance...

logically, it should not work, since the ROOT.tar is built based on Galaxy Ace Plus's own boot.img... however, i am very interested to know how do you manage to modify the boot.img to allow access to DooMLoRD's Easy Rooting Toolkit for rooting purposes... that might help cos i'm actually has started researching rooting methods for Samsung new phones, since i planned to buy Galaxy S Advance as well..

You are right, man I am searching and trying every way to root Galaxy S I9070 Advace . Ben even unpacking and repacking system.img.d5, but with no success. Problem is I don't have enaugh knowlage in this, and I don't use linux, everything I did so far was in windows in Cygwin and on the phone it self when the shell was needed. Maybe we could put our heads together and figure this thing out ! You can PM, if you have any good ideas. I was playing with a thought of installing linux vitualy, and make some enviroment for compiling this android stuff. I have some knowlage about computers since I am computer engineer, but i work as system administrator in windows based environment.

Cheers

Well the steps are very easy & it should work on any android phone not just samsung phones.
First unpack the stock boot.img of your device.
Then open the default.prop file and set
ro.secure=0
ro.debuggable=1
persist.service.adb.enable=1
and save the file.
Now repack the boot image and tar it.
Then you can flash it via Odin
The changes give us root access to adb shell and we can push the su binary and Superuser.apk via adb.
But if you are lazy then run any of the available rooting tools which copy the necessary files via adb(eg Doomlord's toolkit)
