    Root has arrived for US Galaxy S phones!



    Well that didn't take long. Shortly after its international launch, the Samsung Galaxy S has fallen victim to the development community! Thanks to some usual culprits, the Galaxy S has been successfully hacked and root was attained. Leshack, of SamDroid, was the originator of the international Galaxy S hack, and the XDA community has ported his hack to the US versions. Currently tested to work on the AT&T Captivate and T-Mobile Vibrant, those at XDA believe that a few small modifications to the script will allow it to work on the Sprint Epic 4G and Verizon Fascinate as well.

    Paul O'Brien, of Modaco.com, has already created a custom ROM and ROM kitchen for the international Galaxy S, but will likely need to be modified to work on the US versions.

    How to get your phone rooted? All it takes is to flash an update.zip, which will give you su permissions, busybox, and Superuser.apk. Download the Vibrant update.zip here. The Captivate update.zip can be found here. People have had success with these update.zips, but I would be careful what I flash on my phone without double- and triple-checking. Follow the XDA thread for updates and support.

    This is certainly exciting news for anyone interested in purchasing a Galaxy S Series phone. So, how long before we see some FroYo on a US Galaxy S?

    Awesome! I swear I read that somewhere else on this forum...
    OG Droid w/ Pete's GPA16 w/ stock Kernel using auto OC script. (retired)

    LG G2X w/ rooted 2.3.3 leak.

    It's OK for your Droid to be different. Just be supportive and reassuring and it will do just fine. It's when you or other people point at it or mock it for being different is when its' feelings get hurt. Just show it unconditional love regardless of its' differences and it will in turn reciprocate that love and loyalty.

    This makes me want one now! It has everything i wanted, except a slower processor, but this could help me wait it out till LTE phones start rolling. Seriously considering this one...

    Slower processor? The Hummingbird SoC in the Galaxy S phones are all clocked at 1 Ghz and have a better GPU, PowerVR SGX 540 vs. the PowerVR SGX 530 in the Droid X.

    I said I wouldn't upgrade until a 2Ghz/Dual core processor phone came out, so this is slower than i was going for

    Ah OK. I am in the same boat you are. I am waiting for Cortex A-9 based units to come out before I consider upgrading. Before I even get a Cortex A-9 based handset it will have to be rooted as well. Otherwise I won't touch it. Seems that the Galaxy S line of phones with their easy root will fast become the new favorite. Especially considering they will be available across all national carriers and even some smaller regional carriers.

    My next phone was a 3.7-4 inch screen, with a dual core processor (2ghz anyone?), and no keyboard. This has everything I want, minus the processor, so it could help me old off until the LTE capable phones are release.

    But the processor in the Galaxy S won't run as efficiently and will use more power than the X due to the fabricating process. And I'd also lay money that the Galaxy will run slower than the X in benchmarks.

    Besides, the Galaxy S has a smaller screen, smaller camera, no camera flash. Better GPU is the only thing the Galaxy S has over the X. Everything else is sub-par when the Galaxy S is compared to the X.
