Z4root in the market works fine for getting root. It will even unroot for you. I haven't tried a rom manager or flashed any other firmware yet. So far I am just watching the forums here waiting to here of other Cellular South Showcase owners who have success with a custom rom. Please let us know if you find something good that works.

I've got a showcase rooted with z4root and running the voodoo 5 lagfix that can be found here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=871948

I noticed an immediate performance boost after installation, been working great and it's been that way for two or three weeks now. I did a benchmark with Quadrant Standard and it topped out at over 1700.

Can you please instruct me on how to find z4root in the market... I have searched for it dozens of times and it keeps saying 'unable to find, make sure you typed the name correctly.'

:( very unhappy camper here, as I've been trying to root my Showcase for almost a month now and can't find that app...

Just google Z4Root via a web browser (pc or phone). Download it and transfer it to the root of sd card. Then navigate to it through phone and launch. I will take a little while to complete so make sure you have a good charge and some patience. After 5-10 minutes your phone will reboot and it will be done.

Rooting Samsung Galaxy S Showcase
I just got my showcase yesterday and I would like to root it.
I just have a couple of quesions:
If I use Z4root, is it safe? Will Android 2.1 still be on it whenever it finishes?
Will it be completely blank, free of bloatware? This will be my first time rooting
and I'm not going to lie, I'm a bit nervous. I don't want to brick my phone
or mess it up in any way, I just want all the bloatware gone and to be able to
use my phone to its fullest extent.
Thank you!

I have rooted/Rom My showcase
I have rooted my phone using z4. I am running the pick N pack 3 rom.

It was not terrible difficult to do if you have done other phones in the past.

Rooting your phone does not wipe out any software or change out your rom image. It strictly allows applications to execute with higher privileges.
It will let you run things like "Wireless Tether for root user" . You will however need those elevated privileged to be able to replace the rom image on your phone.

I updated my phone to 2.2 so i can use Google Voice Actions. I have had it on many of my phones in the past and missed it. After upgrading my phone, the Google voice actions has a bug. I am unable to call or send text using voice actions. It seems voice actions will not see the last name in my contacts. I can not tell if this is an error with my Google account or on my phone.

I got my rom Image from here http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=970331 but it seems it has been taken down since then.

I do hear that Cellular South is coming out with the 2.2 update. They have been telling me "in a few weeks" since mid Feb. It is getting VERY frustrating. I asked them again yesterday and now they are saying the end of April. Anyway, I hope this helps guys.
