How to root Samsung Galaxy S i9000 easiest way with one click Tool

Rooting your Android system gives you access to core files and control over full system. It gives you ability to alter many inbuilt Core apps like Calender, Messages,etc. Moreover, you can install 3rd party apps and customized themes. Samsung Galaxy S i9000 is fresh in market and I share the easiest way to root your device in one click and even unroot it to original firmware.

Senior members at forum-xda have developed a windows tool which can root Samsung Galaxy S i9000 in one click (for 2.1 Eclair and 2.2 Froyo) and unroot Samsung Galaxy S easy way (For 2.1 Eclair only).

  1. Download One click root tool for SGS GT-I9000
  2. Enable USB Debugging mode: Go to Menu > Settings > Applications > Development and check USB Debugging.
  3. Download USB Device Drivers for Windows. (If you have installed Samsung Kies then skip this step)
  4. Connect your Device to PC / Laptop using USB Cable.
  5. Launch Galaxy S I9000 One-Click Root.exe from the downloaded tool.


Root Galaxy s i9000

Click on the button One click Root 2.1 (for Eclair) and One Click Root 2.2 (for Froyo) Unrooting is currently only available for 2.1 Eclair builds only.

Root Galaxy s i9000

Your Device will now restart automatically in recovery mode. Using the volume keys on left to navigate to the second option reading “Apply Update.zip” and press Home key in middle bottom. After the processing, Phone will reboot again and it is rooted. Please note: Do not unplug USB cable during this complete procedure.

Now, you will see a different icon in your application list called “SuperUser Permission” which means your Samsung Galaxy GT-I9000 is now rooted successfully. Now on, while installing some apps like “screenshot” or any theme, window will pop up asking for Super User permission for complete use.

  1. So there’s a tool to root ur os! Seems easy. So which is better, Samsung’s implementation or the default 2.1 version?

  2. Hi,
    Works fine with Android 2.1.
    For unix users, you can simply copy the root.zip to your sdcard and rename into update.zip.
    Then apply update.zip like explained in the article.

    Thanks for this tips

  12. Jen says:

    questions:
    1. My samsung galaxy s is only 1 week old. If i root my fone will it affect the warranty?
    2. Can i upgrade my firmware to 2.2 without rooting it?
    3. If i root it now can i upgrade to 2.2 afterwards?

    hope to hear from u. thanks

    • Rohit Langde says:

      Rooting affects Warranty but it can be unRooted by ReFlashing to stock ROM, its not a big deal.
      Yes, Upgrading to 2.2 does not necessarily require Rooting and it can be upgraded even after rooting.

      • Jen says:

        so id rather have my phone upgraded to 2.2 instead of rooting it. im scared i might brick my phone. will the lag be fixed once i upgrade to 2.2?

      • rajesh says:

        Hi

        can you please tell me how to unroot my samsung galaxy and i want to remove superuser icon which sits in my home screen.

        thanks in advance

        rajesh

      • Amit Purty says:

        Unroot 2.1 doesn’t unroot my rooted galaxy s?why so?can I upgrade to 2.2 at samsung without any warranty issues?

        • Rohit Langde says:

          Are you on Stock ROM? This app has problem with Custom ROMs I guess. And yes, upgrade your firmware to 2.2 but when you root, you have already voided warranty. My Personal experience says, it doesn’t have any problem with warranty as Service Center guys accept it even after rooting.

  13. Gor says:

    Hi, i have the same problem as Ales: E:SIGNATURE VERIFICATION FAILED

        • jasper says:

          Yes, and I have exactly the same specs as you do, zerkers te weten. It works just fine. z4root that is.. which is not available in Market anymore. You can download it , amongst others, from http://handheld.softpedia.com/get/System-Utilities/Enhancements/z4root-110178.shtml

          sideload it onto your SD and just run the APK.

          You can find Superuser app by ChainsDD for free in Market
          Also have a look at look at SGS Tools (very handy), Titanium Backup (must have), Root Explorer (handy, but be careful).

          Happy but still find your galaxy S a bit laggy? project-voodoo.org

  24. John Robert Osborne says:

    I have just used the tool, but in the end I had the message E: signature verification failed – installation aborted – Any advise?? My galaxy s already has the latest firmware installed (only had it 4 days) but I am trying to clear a “locked??” app “Google Street view” which is not working. Am I wasting my time trying to clean/clear the device this way . . I have been told by Samsung that I have to return the device to have the software “Flashed!!” whatever that means. I would like to try and do it myself . .

    Hi there,

    Great stepped process for rooting, easier to follow than most others, well done. Unfortunately it doesn’t work for me. All steps complete fine until the “navigate to the second option reading “Apply Update.zip” and press Home key in middle bottom.” The update seems to start but then I get the error message as follows:

    “E: Error in /sdcard/update.zip

    (status 7)

    Installation Aborted”

    The phone can be rebooted and runs fine but it’s not rooted. My phone model GT-I9000T, firmware is 2.1 update 1 and Baseband version is I9000TDOJL1. Any idea what my problem might be?

    Many thanks
    Steve
