OneClick (un)root Samsung i9000 Galaxy S


Been looking around for ways to (un)root my Singtel Samsung i9000.

Instructions:
  1. Plug in your phone, make sure it is in debugging mode.
    Settings > Application > Development > USB Debugging
  2. Download the latest version of SuperOneClick (desktop) application from xda-developers.
  3. Extract the zip file.
  4. Right click "SuperOneClick.exe", and select "Run as Administrator".
  5. Click "Root".
  6. You will see the following log. Wait for the "Installing Superuser.apk" to finish.

  1. Done. You should see the "Superuser" icon in your application list.
