Welcome to the forums.
I found that this is an easy rooting guide to follo http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1852546
Would you please verify if your baseband version is JW4 as if it is you can skip the first section of the above guide and go straight to rooting.
IF you have any questions about rooting please ask and i have moved your thread to the all things root galaxy s section.
Thanks

Total noob here looking to root with a view to installing a custom ROM and Ive just found this thread.
My phone setup is
Firmware 2.3.6
Baseband I9000XXJW4
Kernel 2.6.35.7-I9000XXJW4-CL1043937se.infra@SEP-62#2
Build no.Gingerbread.XXJW4
1) So if I follow the link you gave can I just flash the chainfire root which is a kernal? as Im on JW4.
2) I also have android recovery 3e, will this make any difference or will the 3e be replaced by flashing cf root.
Feels like Ive read a million posts and learnt a bit before arriving here but some clarification would be great.

Yes you can go straight too the rooting step since you are on xxjw4 and it should be fine. Then you can proceed to the flashing ROM instructions.

Cheers Liamo this worked for me after a bit of panick. I flashed the cf-root with odin and it failed and all I got was a picture of a pc and a phone on a black screen. I removed the battery and repowered which gave me same result. When I plugged the phone into my pc it didnt register in odin, there wasnt a beep when I connected either and it didnt appear to be charging. Aaaaahhhhh. Panicked, then tried three button salute (vol down, home and power) which took me back to download mode. Flashed cf-root again and success. TF..

Hi Liamo, I am having problems with my SGS when using several apps at a time it hangs up and I have to turn it off and on.
Looking for similar problems in this forum I saw your root guide. Seems good to me.
My phone is having only 363,52MB RAM and I think that is the problem. But I don't know how to increase that RAM.
ROM is 1,87GB o/w 1,59GB are free
Internal storage has large free space too.

Do you think I can fix it by installing the custom ROM ??

My phone data are:
Firmware 2.3.6
Baseband I9000BGJW1
Kernel 2.6.35.7-1187857dpi@DELL128#2
Build no.GINGERBREAD.BGJW5

Flashing a custom ROM definetly made my phone faster . I would recommend cyanogen mod 10 as it worked for me. And of your having any trouble don't be afraid to ask.

Hi bud..
Unfortunately you can't increase internal ram, you need to manage it better...
Have you flashed a custom rom (its what android is all about).. Flash better kernels etc..

With regards to phone hanging check app in the store "watchdog" it will monitor apps & alert which app is using heavy ram or cpu etc..
But your best bet (trust me on this & you'll remember me the rest of your life) change firmware try out icecream sandwich firmware 4.0.x or above jellybean 4.2.2)..it's what I'm running..
It will be like you purchased a new phone..

Thanks Rush. I didn't know there is no way to increase internal ram.

Regarding your recommendation on "change the firmware" I will try. First I need to read more about it to understand what I am doing.
That could be done with Liamo link http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1852546 prev. in this thread. Correct?
But I found out by dialing *#1234# that I am not in BaseBand JW4 but in JW1 instead.
Any suggestion to work it out?

Yes you just flash JW4 as explained in the first step. Then you proceed to rooting.

PS just in case your having doubts I did this exactly and it worked fine.

Liamo, I need help.

Installation is in a loop when flashing the custom ROM.

Trying to summarize the steps done of the [GUIDE] How to root and update your Galaxy S to ICS in your link

http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1852546

- Installation of JW4 was fine
- The root part was also fine
- but Flashing Custom ROM does not. I think the reason is because I put galaxymtd.zip file under ..\sdcard\download\ instead of \sdcard only, but I have no way to move it or to recover the phone.

I tried to install JW4 with ODIN again, but the phone doesn't reboot now. The sequence is:
- While wiping data the msg in the phone says: "E:format_volume: rfs format failed on /dv/block/stl10 (don't know if it is bad or not)
- The cache wipe is complete.
- Next I removed the battery and started the phone in download mode
- Installed JW4 with ODIN with success but the phone is in "Android System Recovery <3e>" sending a lot of RED msgs, like:
- E:copy_dbdata_media: Can't mount /dbdata your storage not prepared yet. please use UI menu for format and reboot actions. ,,,, etc....

Any idea on how to continue?

Firstly does the phone still start up normaly or is it not functional?
also can you still get in to download mode as if you can redo the cache wipe and try flash a custom rom again. Usually when it fails for me i just retry flashing the custom rom and its all fine.

Hi Liamo,
The phone is not functional at all. It is in a never ending startup.

But both, Recovery function and Download function do work.
So I have tried to reinstall JW4 with ODIN again.
- I booted in recovery mode and did a wipe data/factory reset and wipe cache.
- Next I removed the battery and started the phone in download mode
- Installed JW4 with ODIN with success but the phone is in "Android System Recovery <3e>" sending a lot of RED msgs, like:
- "E:copy_dbdata_media: Can't mount /dbdata your storage not prepared yet. please use UI menu for format and reboot actions". ,,,, etc....
- IT DOESN'T continue the normal startup, as it did the first time.
I have the option to "reboot system now" but when I've done the startup enters in a never ending process.
I don't know how to restore my phone.

K mate. Your phone is stuck in a boot loop. As you already installed jw4 successfully the first time try reinstall the custom tom as shown in the guide. So go straight to the third step.

Or you could return phone to stock/ factory and start the process again

Hi Liamo,
I saw a similar problem in this thread http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=984140. having problems with mounting /dbdata

Tried the solution: Flash dbdata.rfs and then flash again JW4 and I am happy
. My phone now starts normally.

Will continue with ICS in another while.

One more thing. If you want flash jelly bean. You follow the exact same guide but instead of using the ICS link they provided get a jelly bean ROM from cyanogen mod. I'd reccomend a stable one for a more bug free experience.

So to recap you could flash a jelly bean ROM from cyanogen mod.

Hi how you doing i hope you're well. i am new to rooting but i have been trying, for about 5 hours, to root my sgs i1900.

i keep meeting dead links or removed files and have read countless tutorials. i finally thought i was going to do it using the tutorial you posted, because this thread is relatively new. but again one of the links leads to "this file has been removed", the odin download from the tutorial has been removed.

do you know of another safe place to download this odin so that i can root my phone, or any other way for me to do this successfully. i just want to root my phone, and i am getting very frustrated having tried to do it for this long and still no root in sight.

Im already running android 2.3.6 xxjw4 which i downloaded through samsung kies. if you could help i would be grateful. but for now, i give up, and i'm going to bed.

i have tried installing cameraMX, still doesnt work. every now and again the camera would work fine so it cant be a hardware problem. but most of the time it would just say "camera failed". now with cyanogenmod 10 it opens up but just displays a black screen. oh well

i have tried installing cameraMX, still doesnt work. every now and again the camera would work fine so it cant be a hardware problem. but most of the time it would just say "camera failed". now with cyanogenmod 10 it opens up but just displays a black screen. oh well
Seems like a problem that would be hard to fix. Sorry I have no ideas but I'll try have a think.

dont worry ive accepted that its never going to work. if i'd been able to root this galaxy s1 sooner, i might not have bought a new phone. its that much faster. and the battery life is better as well. im not sure about rooting my new phone though because i dont want to void warranty.

Question Help a newbie.

Hey so i have no idea what I am doing. I just started using an old Galaxy s from tmobile. I can't download like anything because there is like no space. Saw rooting was an option to get rid of all the junk that comes on the phone, but I don't understand the different directions I find. I don't have a middle home button or fw4, so I don't understand what to do. Please help!

Did you do a data wipe beforehand?
