AFAIK, XME 2.3.6 can be rooted ONLY via Recovery Mode, thus use that method
I rooted my HH about 10 hours ago using that method

My SGW comes with 2.3.5. Will the above rooting work ?

Also, which method out of the 2 is the best to use, for flashing future ROMs and kernels etc.

How to update from 2.3.5 to 2.3.6 ?

How to update from 2.3.5 to 2.3.6 ?

First do the Update via Over The Air(search for it) or Samsung Kies.

After successfully updating use the first method rooting via recovery. This works for now and could work in future.

Just installed Kies.

Someone recommended that i use Odin instead of Kies for upgrading from 2.3.5 to 2.3.6 ?

Would there be a problem if i upgrade my stock 2.3.5 to 2.3.6 via Kies instead of Odin for rooting and then flashing of future roms ?

That's strange. Are you using the stock recovery or CWM/RZ Recovery ?

If you are using the stock recovery, you can give it a try withUnlockRoot.com

If you aren't using stock recovery and you want to root it via recovery, than here is a [URL="http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1467128"]HowTo[URL]
Don't download a firmware. Scroll down to Others and choose the stock recovery and flash it via ODIN.
Than apply the root update.zip via stock recovery.

I would like to find out, what causes this issue. For me rooting via recovery worked without a problem.
