  1. i just finished using the one click software, does it go to a plan black screen that says “reboot system now” and at the bottom it says its “installing Multi-csc”?

  2. Yeah, the instructions within the batch files are cryptic..

    do I want to apply update.zip? all it says is to select volume up to “reinstall packages” which isn’t even an option..

  3. Did some research on another site, You use the volume key to select apply update.zip and select it with your home key, the phone will boot again and you should have a new app called superuser permission (a little ninja icon)

  4. The volume keys are used to highlight an option and to select, you use the power/lock button. Reinstall packages and you are done, if the phone doesn’t reboot automatically, reboot it from the menu

  5. went through all that, but the app just gives me a black screen and nothing happens. where have i gone wrong?

  6. hi, when i connect my vibrant to my computer, it does not install the drivers. What am I doing wrong? I have everything installed, ( net version 4, the driver software, and the one click root,..I also have debugging mode ON) What am I doing wrong? Please help, thanks

  7. The retard that wrote this needs to desperately go back to school. In the cmd.exe instructions it says Congradulations you are rooted. I feel so much better that They cannot even use spell check. Come on, it’s there use it.

  8. My Galaxy S + Froyo.DXJPE + [email protected]#6 2.6.32.9 became unstable, with ‘force-close’ on lot’s apllications (from application killer to skype). Had to re-flash all the phone after installing this ‘one-click-root’. Don’t use it untill the author(s) will clarify what’s up, for which built it works and the known issues…
