reboot system
You have a rooted device

No need of custom kernel, SOC or Z4root .AND z4root supports only devices till android 2.2 .Even Android 2.2.2 is not supported since google patched the exploit .
Will this wipe out all my data???

Had a rooted, froyo 2.2 version of 551 before this.

Found this thread, downloaded the file, and was FINALLY able to root the device.

THANKS A GAZILLIONNN!!

Rooting never wipes your data
Gingerbreak or zergrush wont work on GB .
They were patched by Samsung .

No clue about Droid 2G .The patch was forced by all manufacturers in November-February updates .It was released as minor update .
Carriers have different update policy .If you have firmware update from December 2011 and newer ,chances are it may be patched .

Probably it will .Some once clicks are Android universal like Gingerbreak some are just manufacturer specific. if your carrier has not patched the exploit then the one click loaders may work .

with my mesmerized I don't even bother rooting. I just flash a custom recovery with Odin and flash a custom prerooted rom from cwm recovery. idk if your device has many options for rooms but that's the way to go for me. it skips the rooting process!

Thumbs up rooted galaxy mini GT-S5570

thanks Terszk for the post, been trying for days to root my mini, worked a treat, i've already partitioned a 16GBsd card that's in the phone, but link to sd is now saying theres no card there ? Perhaps i'll remove it and format, then re-partition

Laugh root galaxy "Y" GT-5363

"root234.zip" has worked on my galaxy mini GT-5570 running gingerbread 2.3.4 (O2 locked)
and also on my wife's galaxy "y" GT-5363 running gingerbread 2.3.6 (O2 locked)
I used this in conjunction with "Link2sd" from google play store.
We both have 16GB sd cards installed, i partitioned mine to1.8GB unallocated, and my wife's to 1.99GB unallocated.
All partitions had to be primary
The larger partitions were set to "Fat32"
on my 5570 the unallocated partition was set to Ext2
on my wife's 5363 it was set to Ext3
I used "mini tool partition wizzard" to format both cards
Thanks to all the posts made by different people that enabled me to eventually root both phones

Hi,

I have a samsung galaxy ace GT-S5830
I rooted it no problem but then tried to install a custom ROM (i forget the name of it) and it didn't work, now I am stuck at the samsung logo screen it won't turn on. Tried resetting back to factory standard but it won't work
Help?

You have a rooted device

No need of custom kernel, SOC or Z4root .AND z4root supports only devices till android 2.2 .Even Android 2.2.2 is not supported since google patched the exploit .
when i do all this, after selecting the root234.zip it says:
--Install/sdcard...
finding package update...
opening update package...
E-signature verification failed
Installation aborted.

HELP please?
