Default Root I897 on 2.3.5

I need to know how to root a Samsung SGH I897 running GingerBread 2.3.5. It's not my phone and I need to learn the "ins and outs" of it fairly fast so I can do this for a friend of mine.

I've been looking around this forum, but I am unsure as to wether I should be looking in the"Captivate" area or the "Galaxy S" area for information.

What I need is a straight forward, reliable guide of how to do it and hopefully any download links I need. I really appreciate the help.


note: This is not my first time rooting as I have rooted and flashed my own Galaxy S2 on many occasions, so I am familliar with the "rooting terms". But I have absolutely no experience with the I897.

Have a look here....I tried numerous ways to root my SGS but this one worked.

How to root any android device? - Froot - YouTube

It failed the first time, so I just ran the tool again and it worked a charm.
SGS - CyanAOSP 4.4 KitKat
SG3 - Temasek 4.4.2; Wolfson Kernel
