    ICS source code was released today for this device and we now need people to help. If you own this device please join the new IRC chat at freenode.net #oudhitsquad. If you come please be prepared with adb installed. If you need help with that just let us know and we will tell you anything you need to know. Begin by letting us know what device you are there for please, so we can be prepared. I already have a kernel made and we can probably move right along to CWMR once we have some users in the IRC for a few days. Cheers!

    Is there a known method of rooting this phone yet? Or am I jumping the gun here? ;)

    Not that I know of, but I have someone ready to root it once we have a device to work with. Do you own it?

    Sorry I missed you AlwaysSmile. I'll be back in force on Monday, the weekend is family time and tomorrow is "Bring your dad to school' day. Thanks for showing up! But, what we'll be doing is trying to gain root, then get partition dumps so we can get CWM working. IDK if anyone will pick up CM or other ROMS, but we'll do all we can to make it possible.

    Unfortunately, that link didn't work for me. I'll try my browser at home later this evening to make sure it isn't due to configurations on this work PC.

    Both links are not good!
    the 1st downloaded a unsupported file the 2nd link what you posted directs to a wrong website, besides for some odd reason I cant get my computer to notice my phone as a phone and not as a camera!
    I need help first with this cuz Samsung doesn't know why it happens this way!

    Same thing, links don't work :/ AlwaysSmile do you have any unknown devices in the device manager when you set it your usb to phone?

    I took the second file off because a newer version came out here's the links with a little instruction:
    Samsung Drivers
    Root_with_Restore_by_Bin4ry_v13.zip

    First install the drivers unless you have Samsung Kies already installed.
    Next, extract the Root tool
    Run the RunMe.bat as administrator, it will tell you when to plug the device in.
    Follow the on screen prompts. Report back with your findings. If you are able to get root, we can then get partition dumps and possibly make CWMR...
    Cheers.

    ill be trying this new one out later today!
    I just hope my phone will show up on my computer!

    Remember to start the RunMe.bat with the phone disconnected. Try "Normal" mode first. Make sure USB debugging and "Unknown sources" are enabled on the device.

    I have a Virgin Mobile Galaxy Reverb. I tried v13 of this file and root failed. Below is the output of the screen:

    Press any key to continue . . .

    Below is the info from the "About Device" menu:
    Model Number: SPH-M950
    Android Version: 4.0.4
    Baseband Version: M950VPLH6
    Kernel Version:
    3.0.8-perf-1047073-user
    se.infra@SEP-90#1
    Build Number: IMM76I.M950VPALH6
    Hardware Version: M950.07

    Something that I notice, and I don't know if it makes any difference or not, but it seems this phone is only able to do MTP or PTP for file transfer... can't get a drive letter. Don't know if that makes any difference.
