First of all, SuperOneClick or similar methods do not work for this phone.

First, go to this thread and read it at least twice, then come back and read the rest of this: http://rootzwiki.com/showthread.php...de.-Everything-How-To.-Rom-Kernels-Radios-CWM

The basic method for rooting this phone is to flash CWM via Odin, boot into CWM, and flash a ROM and/or kernel to achieve root. You can just flash superuser if you want to only root and nothing else, but most people want more. The choice of ROM and kernel depend on what you're looking for. Read about each ROM, ask questions, and don't be afraid to try a few different combos to find out what you want.

The biggest choice to make is whether to stay with Froyo or switch to the Gingerbread leak.

all you have to do is use Odin to flash CWM, then flash your rom of choice in CWM or if there's an Odin package for the rom simply just flash in Odin... it will root you and give you a sweet custom rom

This guide is outdated, the process is simple. Flash the EP1W leak from TBH via Odin, then flash CWM via Odin, then flash Gummy, Infinite, or (shudders) Humble after you boot into leak via CWM. It's pretty simple if you follow those steps. If you need to learn how to use Odin or CWM, I suggest reading my How-To thread on the subjects. You can find the downloads for Odin and CWM in there. You can find links to all the available roms in my list thread. Good luck! I recommend only using one of the three roms I listed as they are the only updated roms available.

thanks for the guide, you did forget to add links to the samsung x86 & x64 drivers though. i found some on xda updated in july 2011.

so to get this straight what i have to do:

install sammy drivers
open oden and make sure my device is recognized
flash the stock rom
flash cwm
boot into the rom then boot into recovery and flash gummy, a kernel, etc...

right?

Just flash Gummy, it has a baked in Kernel. If you do flash a kernel, I recommend Imoseyon's, as it is built for Gummy. Thanks for the info about the drivers. I'll add a link to Samsung's driver page.

im going to flash gummy and IMO'S new kernel. but first i want to make sure i have the latest gb radio which i already downloaded.

i have two questions:

1.) whats the difference between the latest cmw in your thread and the cmw/voodoo/4.0.0.8 one that's linked in the gummy thread?
2.) is the voodoo sound mod pretty much the same as using volume+ in the market? because i already had purchased that previously.

The one I posted is newer and supports nandriod backups. Anything older has been known to cause boot loop issues. As far as the sound mod, that's better answered by someone else. I don't know much about them.
