    This is wicked good news. There will be a one click root procedure in a few days for sure.

    Please pardon my ignorance, as I'm new to the Android community (currently deciding between one of the LTE Android phones vs. the iPhone), but what does rooting actually do for you? Is it to run apps that aren't from the original marketplace or does it give you other controls over the phone?

    Thanks.

    All of the above.

    Google it and read up on it. It's great, but not for everyone.

    Ooh, this is great news. With Samsung's commitment to posting all their source code, I'm really excited to see what the community can come up with. If someone can port a Nexus S ROM to it (stock Gingerbread on an ext4 filesystem) with everything still working great, I may just give up waiting for the revised Bionic. I'm willing to bet that the right kernel and ROM would have this phone running as fast as anything dual-core is likely to do in the near future, in which case the screen may be the most important consideration.

    You could replace the "adb shell" command in the script with the follow and maybe make it fully automated.
    Code:
    adb shell /data/local/GingerBreak
    adb shell /data/local/com.sh

    I tried, but what happens is when gingerbreak is done running it leaves you in adb shell and it wont execute the last command.

    But i have been working with someone and we are working on something to fix it

    What about "adb shell /data/local/GingerBreak && /data/local/com.sh"?

    If we see CM7 on this device before I hear anything about the Bionic, I won't be able to resist.
