I have a Samsung GT--i9000 Galaxy S phone with a dodgy usb port.
I am sending it off to get fixed but need to back up the phone first.
To fully back up I believe I need to root the phone to enable back up of application data using titatium or my backup.
Firmware : 2.3.3
Baseband Version : I9000SRJV1
Kernel version : 126.96.36.199-I9000XWJVN=CL366455root@DELL86 #2
Build number : GINGERBREAD.XWJVN
Because the usb is buggered, rooting methods using odin etc which involve connection to a pc are not possibe.
Also because I am running gingerbread 2.3.3 apps like Z4root/gingerbreak etc wont work.
Does anyone know a way to root this phone from recovery mode, or other method without using USB ?
This thread does what i think i want for the i9001 but I cant find a solution for my GT-i9000
advance thanks for any comments
