Default Root Status

UPDATE::
Shabbypenguin and the Android Creative Syndicate have
teamed up with UnleashedPrepaids
to bring root to your Samsung Illusion and Proclaim





This will root both the Samung Illusion on verizon and the Proclaim on Straight Talk.


Youll need to download this app onto your phone: Superuser

You'll need to grab the following files for your computer;

Stock Kernel
Pre-rooted Kernel
Odin
Drivers

If you need to install the drivers then do so now.
Extract Odin and launch the program.
Load the pre-rooted kernel into the PDA slot.
Put your phone into download mode by powering on the device while holding volume down
Connect the phone and watch for the yellow com port in odin.
Click start and wait for the device to reboot

Congrats you are now rooted, however due to a bug we are still working on there is no wifi/cell service. so youll need to flash the stock kernel listed about following the same instructions to restore your phone back to working (with root)

Credits:
Megaman X for being a baddass hacker
Playfulgod for helping with this kernel
djgru for being our little bitc...-tester!! (oh and hes the one who tipped us off to you guys being without root)

root should be coming out in a day or so... hit a few snags with stuff.. as it stands we can root but no chance of cwm at this time due to the kernel not having service :/

If anyone on here is willing to help me out. I bricked my phone and am in need of a rooted illusion owner to give me or shabbypenguin some files to get it back to normal. I can compensate as this would save me time and money. Thank you

I am having a issue with my illusion discharging quicker than normal after I apply the rooted ROM. It was lasting 14-16 hours before the root now it is not even getting to 8 hours. Any idea what might be causing this?

Does this root work on the 2.3 firmware or does that make a difference? Also can I use a tether with this root?
