    I have some questions on the Samsung GT-I9000. My firmware is 2.1-update1. Should I wait for the official Android 2.2 Froyo before rooting or can I root it now? And previously I had tried to root, holding home+power+vol down buttons but just got the Samsung logo flashing and I'm not getting the download screen. What am I doing wrong?

    [ROM] [04.01.2011] Darky's v8.0 Gingerbread Edition ★ JPY ★ | Darky's & R64's Finest. - xda-developers


    1. Download the ROM from above, and put it on your INTERNAL SD-Card.
    Don't unzip it, as this will break the signature.

    2. Download ClockworkMod Recovery.
    You need ClockworkMod Recovery, as this won't work with the stock recovery.

    3. Put ClockWorkMod Recovery on your INTERNAL SD-Card.


    4. Shutdown your phone, wait for it to power off completely (buttons keypad light on Eclair), then boot the phone into Recovery Mode (press Volume UP, keep it pressed, then press HOME button, keep it pressed, then press Power button, keep it pressed until you see the Galaxy S screen. Release all three buttons when you see it).

    6. Select "Apply SDCARD:update.zip" (use volume keys/rocker to move up and down, and HOME button to select).
    ClockworkMod Recovery will boot now (you may have to do the "Apply update.zip" twice for ClockworkMod Recovery to show up).

    7. JUST DO THIS STEP IF YOU HAVE FORCE CLOSES OR OTHER PROBLEMS!

    It's not necessary anymore since v7.0!

    > In ClockworkMod, select "Wipe data/factory reset".
    > *** This will delete ALL YOUR APPS & SETTINGS ***

    8. Now select "Install zip from SDCARD"
    > [use volume keys/rocker to move up and down, and the POWER Button to select].

    9. Select "Choose zip from SDCARD" and then select the ROM zip file (Called something like "Darkys_vX.x_signed.zip).
    > Then choose "Yes."

    10. The Flashing process will start (should take 1 minute) and during the flashing you will see some strange big blue characters on the screen - don't worry, that's normal.
    After the process finished, you will be dropped back into ClockworkMod Recovery.
    From there, choose "Go back", and then reboot your phone.

    11. The first boot will take some time (up to 5-10 minutes) as the ROM will de-odex and zipalign.
    Voodoo won't get activated by default since v6.0!

    That's it! Enjoy my ROM!(Credit to Darky from XDA Developers)
