    Hey guys.

    I thought i post this because when i upgraded to gingerbread i didn't knew how to root it and SOC (SuperOneClick) didn't work for me.

    So who upgraded to gingerbread and wants to root it follow these instructions :

    1. Download a file called upd_1.zip from here .

    2. Put this file to your main(root) directory of your SD card.

    3. Turn off your phone and boot in recovery mode by holding Home button + Power button untill it shows you the recovery mode menu.

    4. There you can't use the touch screen. So you have to use the Volume up/down keys to move up and down and home key to select. Select "Apply update from sdcard" and select your file that you downloaded upd_1.zip.

    5. Wait for it to install (It took about a second for me to install it ). And then select "reboot your device" from the menu.

    And there you go your device is rooted and you can see the superuser icon on the menu .

    This worked perfectly for me. Hope this helps you gingerbread users.

    Yes you are right about the directory. I didn't try gingerbreak. I recommend this method. Btw - did you flash the CWM ? and go for Andro - ID or CM7 you will have a custom rom and root already :) it will save you time :)

    Yeah... I think this works only works for GT - S5570. That's why i posted this thread in the specific device forums :)

    BTW - Post your full device name and i will find you a rooting tutorial for your device :)

    I used this to root my s5570 and it seemed to work great, but I can't change anything in the root folders. Superuser is fine and I can install apps but I can't uninstall the bloatware. I don't have Marketplace because of an Asian build and I'd rather not go through all the trouble of flashing a new ROM. Anyone have any ideas?

    I have ideas. Well you can't change anything in the system(root) folders with a simple file explorer. Use root explorer or ES File Explorer it has that kind of option :) To uninstall bloatware you can install Gemini App Manager and with it uninstall anything you want :)
