A Question about Rooting and Updating my Old Samsung S GT I9000
I'm new to this--I hope I don't come across as a complete *****--here's what I'd like to do:
I purchased a Samsung Galaxy S GT I 9000 in Qatar in August 2010 (a long time ago in tech world), and since then, I've moved to Turkey. I'm happy with the phone, but I do not have Android Market or the capability to download Skype, which is silly considering I live abroad and want to be able to connect with family and friends easily back home in the United States. After trying endless ways online to download Skype and being completely unsuccessful, I realized I had to upgrade my firmware (which is currently only at 2.1) in order to download Android Market. This means I have to root my phone. I've looked at youtube tutorials on rooting Androids, but then discovered that somehow I have no external SD card--I have no idea how that disappeared!--and now, I'm having trouble rooting my phone and taking the necessary steps I need to take in order to be able to download Skype or other apps I'd like.
I've backed up my contacts and media using Samsung Kies.
I've downloaded Unlockroot software program but I'm having trouble actually rooting my device. It keeps freezing on me.
What are the steps to take from here? I don't want to break my phone.
Thanks so much in advance.

Oh and I did these steps without SD card inserted. I don't think you need one
