The problem is that the "xda scientists" doesn't have the i9000 n(yet).
So i think that we need to wait 'ntill the official release in every contry...
I'm waitin' some online shop, in Italy it's will came out at the end of June...

Hmm.. That's kinda strange.. According to source code the "/system/bin/reboot reboot -h 0" command should execute

Code:
char *argv[] = {"reboot","-h",0};
    char *envp[] = {"",0};
    child = fork();
    if(child == 0) {
		
        execve("/system/bin/reboot",argv,envp);

    }

Not sure why the "reboot" is passed as a parameter? However, this could be due to the nature of the exploit..

Code:
This is the root prompt! If you get stuff like this:
# usage: reboot ...
usage: reboot ....
usage: reboot ...

Just keep your cool, press enter and the # will pop again. This is due the exploit spawning reboots to gain the shell.

Maybe let the program run for a longer time? The i9000 is a fast processor where race conditions may be more seldom (my own theory).

By the way.. Could you maybe do a "adb shell uname -a"?

uname not found on system

It loops the reboot message but once in a while, it will show this:

Code:

I still see the $ prompt instead of #

not sure what group 225 for so maybe the code needs to be modified??

I will let it run longer.. The last time I let it run for 30mins

Best news of the day
I hope he can root it

"Samsung Galaxy S custom UI seems very good. ADW Launcher works fine too ofc if you really don't like the touchwiz home/launcher."

Time people! Will wait until it happens. There are worse phones not to have root for! On it now, god I love swype! The responsiveness is an issue!i think it's samsung s frequency scaling settings!

I got root and created a custom rom because samsung had too much bloatware and the heptic feedback sucked. I havent got tethering to work yet though.
