Hey guys im gunna try to keep it short. happen to be browsing thru android Q&A and saw a thread of people trying to get root on a phone so i figured id help em out

luckily sammobile had the stock tar up for it so it was just a matter of grabbing that, unpacking the initramfs. then grabbing kernel source and compiling a rooting kernel.

Kernel
Odin
Drivers

Credits:
Sammobile for having the tar
hallihallo87 for testing my kernel

Like my work? you could always help pay for my daughters college

Rooting successful!
Rooting via Odin with this kernel really ROOT my Galaxy Beam i8530. Kudos to ShabbyPenguin!

Has anyone tried the SIXAXIS tool for PS3 Controllers? it doesn't seem work for me unfortunately.

I've read that the rom probably doesn't have all required bluetooth protocols in order to make it work and that a custom rom like Cyanogen will be required.

Would it be possible to take the Bluetooth Stack from a Cyanogen mod and put it in the Galaxy Beam ROM? Maybe from the Samsung Galaxy S2 Cyanogen Mod as the phone is mostly the same minus the projector.

I doubt there will ever be a Cyanogen Mod project for the Galaxy Beam unfortunately.

We will need to port ClockwordMod, so the cfw will be easier, but i donīt know how to make a dump. I only have a dump from Odin Mobile.
We need to look at "Samsung I9070 Galaxy S Advance" as it is the same phone (without projector) all the specs is the same, not Galaxy S II.

But i can see if i can get it to work tomorrow. I have a Ps3 (3.55 CFW)
