Its only fair that Samsung’s most powerful Android device to date should be on Android 2.3 Gingerbread. While Samsung has announced that they would be upgrading the Galaxy S to Gingerbread, custom Gingerbread ROMs for the device are already available.
An unrooted Samsung Galaxy I9000 running a Gingerbread is pretty much like the Jedi’s without their light sabers or Master Yoda with no control over The Force. What’re you waiting for? Read ahead on how to use a simple procedure to root your device.
