    HI,

    I would suggest before rooting up have the back up for the mobile

    For rooting you have to Download and Install Android SDK

    Connect your Samsung Galaxy S to your PC via USB and use the ADB console to type this command:

    adb reboot recovery

    In the recovery menu, select “apply sdcard:update.zip” by pressing Home + Volume_Down

    Your Galaxy S will now reboot and is successfully rooted. You now have root access to your phone as a Super User.

    Hello friend,

    Rooting is a term in android which is analogous to 'Jailbreaking' in ios. The device manufacturers put many limitations on the system and core settings of the device in order that they should not be changed because if changed, they might seriously harm the device. But android enthusiasts found out a process by which these limitations can be overcomed. That process is called rooting. After rooted, one acquires elevated privileges or administrative rights. As a result, those inaccessible settings can be available. In a way, one can acquire complete control over their device. You can call it hacking your device for its own good.

    After rooting, one can flash custom ROM's which are better than stock ones both in looks and performance. Many app are specially made for rooted devices (like the one mentioned by you). There are very useful apps like Titanium Backup and all like that.

    To root your Galaxy follow these steps:
    - Download this update.zip file :http://forum.xda-developers.com/attachment.php?attachmentid=840337&d=1325575358
    - Copy it to the root of your SD card (main directory) as it is.
    - Power off your device.
    - Hold down power, vol. up and home buttons simultaneously to enter recovery mode.
    - Here, you have to navigate using volume buttons and home button is to select.
    - Go to 'Apply update from SD card'.
    - Select update.zip and press yes.
    - Go to main menu and press reboot.
    - Now you have rooted your device. To confirm it search for an app named 'SuperUser' which is installed after you root.

    Hope it helps,
    Regards!
