Default SGH-T959V 2.3.6 Plus ROOT

SGH-T959V 2.3.6 Plus ROOT. I did not make this. I found this link on XDA.
I have used it on 4 different SGH-T959V devices with 0 issues..
this is for T-Mobile phones.


Read the dam read me before posting shit like this don't work how do I do this etc etc.. I will not answer any questions related to those issues. If you can not read a read me then you deserve no answer

If you do not know how to get into download mode then do not even try this..

If you brick your phone then to bad that is the chance you will take when messing with your device.

Here is the READ ME FIRST..
___________
Tools to update your Samsung Galaxy S 4G to GB 2.3.6 and root it.

1) Install phone drivers on your 64-bit Windows machine
2) Install Odin
3) Restart phone in Upload Mode and connect to USB
4) Load GB Rom to 'PDA' in Odin and press start


5) Restart phone in Upload Mode and connect to USB


6) Load 1st Root Rom to 'PDA' in Odin and press start
(phone will be in boot loop after this step. Do a battery pull and)


7) Restart phone in Upload Mode and connect to USB


8) Load 2nd Root Rom in Odin and press start

This will update your Samsung Galaxy S 4G to GB 2.3.6 and root it.


Disconnect your phone if it’s connected to PC. Then Switch it Off. Wait 5-6 seconds for vibration to confirm complete switch off.
Now, put the Galaxy S 4G in “Download Mode” — Hold VolumeUP and Volume_DOWN keys and connect it with PC using USB cable. You should get the message “Added! !” under the Odin’s message box in the bottom left. If you don’t get “Added! !” message, than probably there is a problem with drivers. Make sure you’ve drivers installed (links given above under heading ‘Pre-Installation thoughts’).
Now, in Odin, select these files at respective tabs (for visual help, see the screenshot at step 11 below):
Click the PDA Tab, and select CODE_I9000XXJVS_CL565837_REV03_user_low_ship.tar (from step 2.1)
Make sure these 2 checkboxes are ticked: Auto Reboot and F. Reset Time. And, the Re-Partition checkbox is not-ticked. Leave everything else on Android untouched.

Double check everything said in step 8 and 9 above.

Now, hit the START button to begin the flashing process. When it finishes, your phone will automatically reboot, upon which you can unplug the cable.

Plus, you’ll get a PASS (with green background) message in the left-most box at the very top of the Odin. If it’s in red and with FAIL written over it, the process flashing process wasn’t successful. If you get FAIL message, or it stuck at “Setup Connection”, simply, try the whole procedure again.
When it restarts, your Galaxy S 4G will be running the Android 2.3.6 with Samsung’s custom UI TouchWiz 3 atop it.
