    Just a note that a lot of AV programs say Rage is a trojan. NOD32 did, and I think someone said that Avast or AVG did too.

    Also reboot computer after installing Samsung drivers. It doesn't ask you to, or offer to, but you do need to. I got hung up on waiting for device until I rebooted. I hadn't rebooted after I installed the Samsung Driver.

    The link to SAMSUNG_USB_Driver_for_Mobile_Phones_x86.rar is not working

    also, you should enable USB debugging first before you start (don't connect the USB cable until you do this) by going to Menu > Settings > Applications > Development.

    Shouldnt this be removed? superoneclick does not root gingerbread 2.3.3, 2.3.5 or 2.3.6.

    Hello eviera!
    Sorry about the late reply but you can use an app called titanium backup available in the play store. I would recommend buying the ProKey for it also because you can freeze apps before uninstalling them.
    Very well worth the 7 or 8 bucks it costs, but is one of the many apps that root users can benefit from:)

    I know this is a long dead topic but I am about to throw multiple electronics out a window.I have now run this version of Superclick along with a few others I have found with no success. I am hitting the same roadblocks each time. :dontknow:

    MODEL: SGH-T959V
    FIRMWARE: 2.3.6
    BASEBAND: T959V UVKJ6

    I have erased the phone a few times and rebooted to 2.3.6 to start fresh.

    I took this from SC. I cut out the initial code as it went through with no problem. It all gets hung up with Busybox I think.... Failed whoami? It then continues to get all jacked up and sits without progression at "Shell rooting device step 5"

    ls -l /system/xbin/su > /data/local/tmp/output 2>&1
    export TEMPRANDOM=44938
    export PS1=END:$TEMPRANDOM;cat /data/local/tmp/output
    /system/xbin/su: No such file or directory
    END:44938export PS1=""


    ls -l /system/bin/su > /data/local/tmp/output 2>&1
    export TEMPRANDOM=32082
    export PS1=END:$TEMPRANDOM;cat /data/local/tmp/output
    /system/bin/su: No such file or directory
    END:32082export PS1=""

    chmod 755 /data/local/tmp/busybox > /data/local/tmp/output 2>&1
    export TEMPRANDOM=20197
    export PS1=END:$TEMPRANDOM;cat /data/local/tmp/output
    END:20197export PS1=""

    /data/local/tmp/busybox whoami > /data/local/tmp/output 2>&1
    export TEMPRANDOM=82615
    export PS1=END:$TEMPRANDOM;cat /data/local/tmp/output
    whoami: unknown uid 2000
    END:82615export PS1=""

    rm /data/local/tmp/boomsh > /data/local/tmp/output 2>&1
    export TEMPRANDOM=72599
    export PS1=END:$TEMPRANDOM;cat /data/local/tmp/output
    rm failed for /data/local/tmp/boomsh, No such file or directory
    END:72599export PS1=""

    rm /data/local/tmp/sh > /data/local/tmp/output 2>&1
    export TEMPRANDOM=77310
    export PS1=END:$TEMPRANDOM;cat /data/local/tmp/output
    rm failed for /data/local/tmp/sh, No such file or directory
    END:77310export PS1=""

    chmod 700 /data/local/tmp/zergRush > /data/local/tmp/output 2>&1
    export TEMPRANDOM=88593
    export PS1=END:$TEMPRANDOM;cat /data/local/tmp/output
    Unable to chmod /data/local/tmp/zergRush: No such file or directory
    END:88593export PS1=""

    cd /data/local/tmp/ > /data/local/tmp/output 2>&1
    export TEMPRANDOM=61012
    export PS1=END:$TEMPRANDOM;cat /data/local/tmp/output
    END:61012export PS1=""

    export TEMPRANDOM=80448;export PS1=END:$TEMPRANDOM;./zergRush
    ./zergRush: not found
    END:80448export PS1=""

    I feel that the obvious reason is that my phone is not properly prepared to be given Root. I can not for the life of me figure out what I may be ignoring. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks in advance :smokingsomb:

    New development! Odin recognizes my phone! I still have the "firmware upgrade encountered" error and Windows still gives me the same USB malfunction error but Odin sees it! I haven't enabled USB debugging though.
