This is all copied straight from my original topic under the "suggest new" section: http://androidforums.com/suggest-new/228344-samsung-continuum-rooted.html This will be a simple process and is my first tutorial. I will be using z4root for this. I am not responsible for any damage or lost data. 1) Go to the market and search "z4root". There will most likely be 2. One of the descriptions will have what looks to be Asian writing. You need the one that is in english. I will put up screen shot as soon as I figure out how to lol. 2) Download and install the application. Pretty simple. 3) After the installation is complete, You need to run it. 4) You now have 2 choices: "Temporary root" and "Permanent root" 5) Pick either one, but remember that the temporary one does not stick, and will disappear after a reboot. 6) It will first say something about saving files. Then it will say "Running exploit to obtain root" or something along the lines of that.You then will wait. If it goes longer then about 3 min. Go on to the last 2 steps. If it finishes, Congrats, you are rooted. 7) Since Your phone is taking so long, I recommend you do a battery pull. That is what I had to do when I rooted. You can try pressing the back button, and then restarting the app. That is also an option. 8) After you've shut down, or pulled the battery, you need to turn it back on. After it starts, go back and start the app again. If it gets stuck again, do step 7 and this step again. Congrats, you should now be rooted! Have fun, I recommend using set CPU so you can underclock the CPU to save battery. If you need to unroot, PM me and I'll write a tutorial on how to unroot.
