    1) Download and install SAMSUNG USB Drivers for Mobile Phones

    2) Copy update_su.zip to internal sdcard.

    3) Switch off the phone and enter to download mode ("Vol Down + Home + Power").
    Wait until the driver will be installed and Odin will recognize the phone!

    4) Flash I8160XXLD8_ready_to_root_ANT.tar.md5 using Odin as PDA part.

    5) Turn off the phone again and enter to recovery mode ("Vol Up + Home + Power").

    6) Select "apply update from sdcard" and choose update_su.zip file

    7) Reboot the phone

    8) Got root? [​IMG]

    Warning:You will lose your warranty. At least until we find a way to reset a custom flash counter.

    Ok, if I install this one it's possible later to switch back to original version?

    since installing, randomly deletes icons from all desktops, gmail doesn't sync anymore.

    When I reboot the phone, I lose all my saved passwords, and my keyboard default back to standard settings. doesn't seem to work very well.
