    This is so simple even my 8 year old can do this. It's literally dummy-proof. Just download the one click root program, install it on your computer, run the "Galaxy_One-Click_root" application, follow the 2 easy steps that pop up, and you're rooted.

    Just make sure you installed the Samsung drivers on your computer so it can read your phone when you connect it via usb. And make sure your phone is connected via usb when you run the program;)

    Good Luck

    Ok, here is what you do:

    1. Download OCLF from the app market.
    2. Open OCLF then click on root 2.1 and follow what it says.
    3. Go into recovery mode by(when the phone is off) holding the volume buttons and the power button down, then after the Vibrant screen flashes for the second time let go of power button while still holding volume keys.
    4. Once in recovery mode go to option 2(it will say install something or something like that) then hit the power button then your phone will be restarted and when it comes back on it will be rooted.
    Sorry if that was confusing sometimes people say I am confusing lol.
