[HOWTO] Rooting your Samsung Intercept the Easy Way

Well, a lot of places are listing difficult methods to root their Sprint/Virgin Mobile (which I have) Samsung Intercept. Here is an easy way I discovered:

1) Download the Samsung Intercept drivers at: http://www.samsung.com/us/support/downloads/SPH-M910ZKASPR
2) Install the drivers for your computer (XP/Vista)
3) Download and install the SuperOneClickRoot 1.5.5 (latest version) at http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=803682
4) Run the SuperOneClickRoot program after enabling USB debugging mode on your Samsung Intercept which is plugged into your USB port.
5) Viola, your Intercept will be rooted now.

If you have the Virgin Mobile version then you will have the cheapest unlimited wifi/USB tethering option ever!

Enjoy... :D

This is one way, but there is an alternative and in my opinion "easier" way of achieving "Temporary Root"...

There is an app called Z4root and the author of this app is one of our very own. Please thank z4ziggy and Sebastian Krahmer's rageagainstthecage because if it wasn't for them it would not be possible...

Navigate HERE to see the details and the download. It is very simple and as I have figured out, only the "Temporary Root" option works on the Virgin Mobile Samsung Intercept at this time.

Once the app is installed just click temporary root and you have root until your device is rebooted...

Have Fun and Be Safe!

I am not sure about that, but z4root is another easy way to enable a temporary root in order to flash a custom rom on the intercept...

I have been developing and hacking android since day one[tmo g1] and want to flash my intercept. Just holding off until a more stable rom/kernel is released.

Had a baby girl 2 months aggo and don't have the devel time needed to push out a stable rom by myself...

Y'all can msg me on gtalk at anytime if you have any questions or concerns on my new screen name androidsamurai.

Happy new year guys...
