    I own a T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy S 4g (SGH-T959V) that I want to root, and I was wondering if it could be rooted just like the Vibrant (SGH-T959). Can someone please help. I eventually want to install jellybean 4.1 on it.

    I just did it today! I was stoked, took an hour or two but well worth it, now using a Telus SIM in a Mobilcity Galaxy , flashed with Tmobile Root - Working BEAAAAUUUTIFULLY... process itself doesn't take long after everything is in order... let me know if you are running GingerB 2.3.6 firmware and if so than I will post the necessary links alright? Thanks

    i'm about to figure out if our phones are capable of running New Android OS like ICS
