  1. Help. . Do this trick work for galaxy young (gingerbread 2.3.6) ? Coz i did root with Superoneclick or recovery boot with file update can not work in my phone

  2. Thank for this easy step by step strict forward documentation. I have flashed and rooted my android never so fast before.

  3. Surprised there’s so little comment here.
    The links to the CF root packages didn’t work for me so took the filename from the link and found it elsewhere. I hope it’s the same thing!

    Is it really necessary to do the hard reset at the end? I’d prefer not to lose everything. There seems to be a vicious circle in that, to backup your apps and settings, backup utilities require root but to get root you have to wipe your apps. Is there a way around this?
