    hello every one. i am new to rooting, i have an i9000 by samsung. i have spent the last 3 hours on line trying to root my phone. i have downloaded the "one click root" download for the galaxy phones by samsung, several times and keep running in to error status 7. i searched error status 7 and found a sit ethat said i needed to reformatt my sd carsd from fat to fat32. i donot know how to reformat my internal sd card to fat32. also i believe for the root to work it needs to load on to my internal sd card. can any one please help me? why wont it work on my phone. i have even tried downloading programs to manually root but those are not working either. what am i doing wrong?

    this is word for word what my phone is saying during the root process.

    install from sd card
    finding update pakage
    opening update pakage
    installing update
    assert failed: getprop
    gt-i9000
    "a bunch more mumbo jumbo then at the bottom it says"

    error in sd card update zip (status 7)

    any one familiar with this?
