    Mine is rooted. At this point the biggest benefit of rooting is getting rid of the bloatware along with other apps that require root. I do recommend reading the Rootzwiki thread before rooting. I do have the Samsung drivers posted in there somewhere which you'll probably need. If you got any further questions feel free to ask.

    Hi there.. I tried to root my phone, but cannot..
    I got the phone to be detected on the cmd window.
    And after that, it says, to flash it using one command. I copy and paste it.
    Then then guide says that the phone will reboot with yellow ! triangle symbol.
    It doesn't!! It just stays at the same window "Downloading.. Do not turn off target!!"

    Can you please help me as to how can I get it flashed so it reboots with ! yellow symbol?

    Multiupload.com - upload your files to multiple file hosting sites!

    md5: ef0c998d89dd50d0d5069432a330862

    Download and install the drivers with phone unplugged from your PC. Reboot your computer. Then plug your Stratosphere into your PC so it can detect the drivers. Restart the ADB process from the detect point in the steps. You should be able to complete the rooting process from there.

    Okay, I downloaded and installed the driver.
    And I also flashed the phone.
    The phone rebooted..

    I turned on the USB debugging. And it is currently on!

    BUT, the step after turning on debugging, i.e. Now, in the command window, make sure your phone can be seen..

    I am not able to see that device. I am not sure how to do these steps.. Can you please help?
    The heimdall folder with the extracted files are on desktop in C drive.

    Thanks

    Unplug and replug the phone after you turn on USB Debugging. If that doesn't work then reboot your PC again. It took me a few times doing that until finally ADB decided to detect my Stratosphere.

    I really need some help now..

    Its been like 2 weeks of trying, and didn't success! So, please someone help me now.

    I am stuck on the rooting process from step:

    "Now, in the command window, make sure your phone can be seen:

    F:\Downloads\heimdall-suite-1.3.1-win32>adb devices
    List of devices attached
    3235A3CA0D8400EC device

    Before that step, it says to let the phone restart, makesure USB Debugging is on ---> I DID THAT! And everythings fine until then.
    And then I try to do that command in cmd, and it says "The device is not ready".

    I am really not sure what to do from this step.. Just a few steps left.
    Please help.

    Thanks in advance!

    Did you install the adb shell and drivers? This is essential to the root procedure. I eventually rooted mine there is an extra space in the tutorial on the last step where you change the chmod permissions.

    hey there sagarmody i will leave this oneclick root for you =)

    [ACS] Skyrocket Easy Root - Windows/Mac/Linuxs long as you flashed the kernel in knights guide ( the root-zimage) then use that link i just put here and download the skyrocket root and extract it into a new folder on your desktop and then open the folder and open the program that is called root and then follow what it says and then you will have root

    Hey icebear, I did that, and I did have root.
    But when I try to use a application that needs the phone rooted, it says the phone isn't rooted! Please root the phone, and try to use the application again.

    So, I am not sure whats going on..

    But anyhow, I am stuck on that step on the guide about listed devices..

    Please help.
    Thanks

    Yes, I am positive that the kernel has been done because I do see a yellow exclamation whenever I restart the phone!
    And what's the Superuser thing? I don't get that..
    Anyways, please see what could be done.
    Thanks for help!

    It seems you have root once you have that yellow logo only thing left to do is download superuser from the android market place and hope the root went all the way through. Then wait till someone figures out to how to install clockwork recovery on the strato.
