    [WARN]Gingersnap (along with all other Android modifications) is experimental software and while I have made this as safe as possible, differences in operating environments and natural disasters can cause your device to become unusable. Please make sure you understand this important fact before downloading.

    Disclaimer: Neither myself, Android Central or any other member of Android Central are responsible for any disasters that occur as a result of any hack or modification you perform on your device. Your use of this application is at your own risk![/WARN]


    With that out of the way, I'd like to introduce you to the Gingersnap Root Utility. Gingersnap is a one-click root utility, much like SuperOneClick or Universal Androot.

    The nitty gritty: Gingersnap uses a modified version of the famous GingerBreak exploit to automatically root your Android-powered device and installs the necessary files to maintain a permanent root status.

    Pre-use Requirements:
    1) You need the .NET 4 Framework. Not the Client Profile, the full .NET 4 Framework.
    2) For some reason you need the Visual C++ 2008 redistributable installed. Don't ask me why.
    3) You need proper drivers for the your phone. Your video card doesn't work without drivers and neither will your phone.
    4) Before running this Utility please make sure your phone is in debugging mode

    Instructions:
    • Download and unzip Gingersnap-V1.2.zip to anyplace on your computer
    • Connect your phone to computer in debugging mode
    • Open Gingersnap-V1.2 folder
    • Double click Gingersnap applications icon
    • press GO , sit back and relax

    Am I correct to say that you must root your phone before downloading ROM's.

    everything was going smooth until i entered the command "/data/local/GingerBreak" i saw the following:

    [+] Detected Froyo!
    [+] Found system: 0xafd1452d strcmp: 0xafd1d7ed
    [+] Found PT_DYNAMIC of size 264 (33 entries)
    [+] Found GOT: 0x000162e8
    [+] Using device /devices/platform/s3c-sdhci.2/mmc_host/mmc2[*] vold: 2385 GOT start: 0x000162e8 GOT end: 000016328.


    i thought this part supposed to take a few minutes but i left it this way for more than an hour and no change...ive also removed the battery and repeted the process..and it always stops at the same place...any ideas on what to do next???
