There are two ways to root your galaxy 3 on 2.2/2.1

Z4ROOT(2.1)
1.Download the attached z4root.apk and install it.
2.Enable USB Debugging
3.Go into z4root and click on Permanent Root.

Super One Click Root(2.2)
Make sure your phone drivers are installed on the computer (Samsung Kies). Then follow the steps:

1. Enable USB Debugging.
2.In Superoneclick 1.7, check regeagainstthecage then click on the 'Root' button. After a few seconds, it'll say 'Waiting for device'.
3. Connect the phone to the computer using the USB Cable.
4. Superoneclick will detect the phone.
5. Now the phone will be rooted.(don't touch while it is going on.)
6. After rooting, download and install busybox on your phone.(get it from market)

If you run into any problems then, follow the instruction s given below..(by hodostamas)

If the program stucks here:
Running rageagainstthecage...
or
getting mount path...

Do this:
1. If touchwiz is the default launcher, set it.
2. Reboot your phone
3.Try to root again following the above instructions
(It should be pass Running rageagainstthecage...)

Restart phone, and try again.

It should work now.

Although i use a prerooted rom and it is the best way z4root also worked great for me when on the stock rom and its easier and faster!

Already rooted using superoneclick long ago.

Just wanted to know-
if manual rageagainstthecage method using terminal emulator works with g3?

And update.zip method works for froyo? (they say it's for eclairs, I personally never tested on froyo or eclairs, but it seems to be the easiest method if it works, after z4root which doesn't work)

Behind You
is there any new way to root the phone ?

I find that flashing a custom rom is a lot easier since it is pre-rooted and it's got a lot of performance tweaks etc but i'm using stock rom atm and i rooted it using superoneclick. If you have android 2.1 then use z4root (an app on your phone) which i have used for my first time rooting on this phone when i had android 2.1 and if you have android 2.2 then use superoneclick root (a program on your computer). Hope this helps.
