hi i have a Telstra S5360T which is currently locked to Telstra.

i have try universal GB root V25 and i can't get root access, it shows as it's being rooted but when i try unlocking with Galaxy Toolbox, it still says no root access.

i have tried super one click 2.3.3 and was frozen on the way, and i have try many version of update.zip and none of them are working.

does anyone has any idea how to unlock/root Aus Telstra version of S5360T?

Hi, I started off like you - tried many different methods on XDA and elsewhere - even hair pulling.
Firstly network 'unlocking' doesn't require 'root' access. Telstra will supply an 'unlock code' for free if your phone is over 2 years old. (Otherwise they may charge you to break contract) You give them IMEI number of your phone - they can give you code.
To open your Network Unlock screen – dial > #7465625*638*# on your handset and enter 'unlock code'.
I don't know if 'root' requires that handset is ' network unlocked'.
Anyway . .
Then I found this post - http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1927769 - and by adopting method "3-Just(only)root:", and downloading the corresponding attached file - " 3-KERUK_Samsung_Root-only_signed.7z " I finally was successful in rooting my SGY GT S5360T (after weeks of frustration).
All credit and thanks to -CALIBAN666- for supplying the solution.

Incidently - my reason for attempting root was to try to properly unlock my phone to operate on Optus 3G (umts 900 MHz).
Although phone is network unlocked (unlock code supplied by Telstra), and the phone specs say it's 3G 900Mhz compatible, it is still not able to operate on that signal. I'm flummoxed. Would like to know, if you get your root, can your phone (S5360T) go 3G 900 MHz.
I suspect Telstra's firmware is holding out on me.

Good luck with it, hope this helps, and send thanks to -CALIBAN666-.
