After the Root tutorial on Samsung Galaxy S i9000 firmware as JVS (Gingerbread 2.3.5), I propose today a root tutorial for a Galaxy S i9000 with Gingerbread 2.3.6.
The tool is prepared by ChaineFire root, a developer confirmed on XDA. The tool is called CF Root, and it is intended for the beginner. It allows rooting the unit without changing too much the Kernel of your Galaxy S i9000, which means that it provides a strong compatibility. It introduces the Root, BusyBox and SuperUser application.
The interest of this tutorial is to allow you to root with a few clicks your Samsung Galaxy S i9000 firmware to XXJVZ (Android 2.3.6). I never fail to warn you that the operation comes with some risks, which could damage your Smartphone if it is not correctly applied. The warranty of your Smartphone could be lost. Do not continue unless you know what you are doing and if you are willing to accept the consequences.
Note: If the firmware of your Samsung Galaxy S i9000 is different from XXJVZ (Gingerbread 2.3.6) do not use this tutorial. Those with another version than the one stated in this tutorial should wait the transition to XXJVZ (via official KIES ROM for Europe, providing Android 2.3.6).

- Put the Samsung Galaxy S i9000 in Download mode with the same key combination described above.
- Connect your device via USB cable; it should be recognized immediately by ODIN; if not, install the driver of the Samsung Galaxy S (If everything is OK, the first square in the upper left side is yellow)
