    WARNING: update zips have been known to wipe the data from Samsungs, you have been warned

    I know alot of developers including myself have fought with this device. While I don't have one on hand, I can still produce files for it.

    Not quite working yet

    To install:
    1. Download the zip file and put it on the root of your sd card (topmost layer of files)

    2. Boot your Appeal into Recovery mode (power + "T")

    3. Select "Apply update from SD card"

    At this point, the update.zip should have run and you should be rooted. Update Superuser and the binary after flashing.

    This project is on hold until I either:
    1. Get an Appeal to test on
    2. Manage to root it remotely.

    Until then, Happy searching.

    Look forward to a working root method soon! We're just about to crack this phone wide open...
