    Okay, I came here to find a way to do this and found it (in seven different threads + a few outside links), so for anyone else, here it is in one place.

    1.- Download this file, it has everything you need. Extract it somewhere.

    2.- Most 9000B's seem to have the 3-button options locked, so first we need to unlock that.

    2.a.- Enable USB debugging on your phone.
    2.b.- Open up Odin3 (in Vista and 7, "run as administrator...").
    2.c.- Connect your phone to your PC.
    2.d.- In Odin3, under "PDA", find "Aries_P-SBL.tar.md5".
    2.e.- In Odin3, make sure "Re-Partition" is NOT selected and "Phone Bootloader Update" IS selected.
    2.f.- In the boxes at the top, check that your phone is connected.
    2.g.- Click "Start", it should take 40 - 50 seconds to do the update.
    2.h.- After reboot, turn off your phone and try [VOLDOWN+HOME+POWER] to see if it worked. If it did, you

    I'm trying to root my i9000b, but it's already upgraded to Froyo. Any chance anyone has the update.zip for that? No rooting file has worked so far...

    You cannot root froyo using update.zip. Download z4root from the market.
