I made an easier to follow tutorial over here with pics. Sorry but I am tired of going back and forth so just go there if you are having problems. If you can follow simple adb commands just follow the directions below


Download and Install Samsung Drivers

32bit:

1 Click Root Method
http://forum.androidcentral.com/fasc...-how-root.html

Manual Method

cd C:\android-sdk\tools

adb push C:\fascinate\su /sdcard/su
adb push C:\fascinate\rage.bin /data/local/tmp/rage.bin
adb push C:\fascinate\busybox /sdcard/busybox

adb shell
cd /data/local/tmp
chmod 0755 rage.bin
./rage.bin

wait....
when it brings you back to your original shell in windows then follow these commands

adb shell (you should see # this time instead of $ this is exactly what we want)

mount -t rfs -o remount,rw /dev/block/stl9 /system

cd /system/xbin
cat /sdcard/su > su
cat /sdcard/busybox > busybox
chmod 4755 su
chmod 4755 busybox

exit

adb install C:\fascinate\Superuser.apk

This is permanent.

I just updated the files here with the latest su / superuser.apk / busybox

confirmed root.

Had to use Superuser.apk 2.3.6.1 and the su binary in the package, but the rest worked.. except for that cat command? Why would you cat binary files instead of copying them? (not complaining, just curious). I just adb pushed them to /system/xbin, and adb shell chmod'd them.

You also have a typo near the end "scard" instead of "sdcard".

You can also use mv or cp. I just happen to use cat because I used it the other day rooting my friends stock 2.2 droid. Which required me to use cat.

And yes this is permanent

Cool, i tried using rm -rf to get rid of a directory I created accidentally, and was getting some syntax errors, so I wasn't sure how compatibile the command line on android was to linux.

Glad it's pretty close. Being very familiar with linux makes this pretty easy to understand. Day 1 with an android device was pretty darn fun. I think I'm glad I went this direction.

I just followed this and used the same files I had from my Droid 2 (just updated the Superuser.apk from this sites thread for it) and works perfectly. Rebooted phone did "adb shell" and "su" and still have root, so it is permanent

side note: steps say "/system/xbin" and assume you meant "/system/bin" like Droid 2 was. That's where I put them and it worked.
You'll find me with an Android

It works either way, both are executable system folders. Glad you it worked for you, hopefully we can get some roms cooking soon and play catch up to the other galaxy s phones
