    Well hello all yea techie's and mobile enthusiasts. My name is Tyler and i currently have a Samsung Galaxy S 4G and i have not looked back since! It's the T959V if that matters lol. Anyways, i found this website through my brother because i have interest in rooting my phone and having a place to call home when i get nerdy. I am currently enlisted in the U.S. Army and am scheduled to depart for Basic Combat Training and AIT on august 25th, 2012. Uhh that about wraps it up for me, anyone who knows where i can start looking to learn how to root my galaxy s 4g please let me know, i'd greatly appreciate it!

    I'm just trying to do my part. As the saying goes, it's not what your country can do for you, it's what can you do for your country. Thank you though, it means alot to hear people still supporting what us future soldiers and current soldiers are doing for the USA. So anyone have any links or info as to where i can begin looking on how to root my phone? I'm beyond excited and motivated to learn and move forward! :happy2:

    First I recommend you check out the link in my signature. It'll get you familiar with the lingo and Android in general. (I've read it a ton of times myself)

    As for rooting your phone, I'm assuming you're on T-Mobile so: How To Root T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy S 4G With SuperOneClick
    I
    'm not 100% sure, but your phone should be on 2.3.x. You can look that up by going to Settings --> about phone

    Believe I am no psychic, maybe a bit of a Mentalist though:D

    Really though, your phone model is only available on T-Mobile to my knowledge. So I just looked up how to root your model and there ya go. That's the simplest method I found though there are others and more updated. Just make sure when you root, that your method is compatible with your version of Android. Make sure you read this as well: http://www.droidforums.net/forum/droid-hacks/632-what-root-means-stop-asking.html

    Quick question, i recently used samsung kies mini to update to gingerbread on my galaxy s 4G but i heard honeycomb is the newest OS besides ICS, is honeycomb better/faster than the gingerbreadman i updated to? If so where could i find the Honeycomb OS file? Thanks in advance :)

    *EDIT* I didn't want to double post, so i figured i would edit my original lol. Anywho, i am reading alot of comments about the Super one click to root samsung phones not working and or crashing phones..... i'm a little hesitant to root now due to this. I really want to due to the fact that i want total control over my phone but i'm scared due to the comments i'm reading! Any advice? Also, what is this about using busybox? I'm so lost :/
