First post updated with new version: will now detect when USB debugging is not enabled, and instruct you to enable it, as well as auto opening the settings page.

It should work on most Android devices. Vibrant is almost an I9000, so 99% chance it will work fine.

Two quick questions:-
1. Does USB Debugging have to selected ALL the time or just to install?
2. For other Root files i.e. 'CF-Root-XX_XEU_JPO-v1.2-Busybox-1.17.1' do they require USB Debugging to install or when in use?

USB debugging is only required to root, once rooted you can turn it off again. This is because the root (rageagainstthecage) uses the 'ADB' or android debugging bridge/daemon to work it's magic.

CF-Root is a big step further than just USB debugging or rooting - CF-Root is replacing the OS kernel on your device. So it's not really the same thing, it's a lot more extreme. And it's much more difficult to install - it needs Odin after all.

This root is very similar to the 'SuperOneClick' root, but I personally did not like the PC requirement involved, so I made this.

Sorry.. I didn't even think about unrooting. The idea is a bit foreign to me.
That said, I will definitely have the app pick up if its rooted, and change the root button into an unroot button automagically in the next ver.
