    Thanks dude for your help

      • Hi Neal. Pradeep

        Why XXJVR 2.3.4 is better than other XX*** roms??

        I am from India and I am planning to update my current unrooted Galaxy S (1week old) running on 2.3.3 to 2.3.4 any time soon and want to add new cf-root, voodoo sound v10 and lag fix. I don’t want to overclock! I also want my phone to be battery efficient!

        I did little research I am quite afraid to flash it because I don’t want to brick! I need little spoon feeding from you :D

        Thanks for opening this blog for us !!

  12. hey neal rooted and its great but i can’t do a factory reset / wipe cache partition ? any idea why ? please answer. thanks

  16. Hey mate, just wondering; when I root my phone with this,will I lose all my apps and saved data?

  17. hi Neal i have downloaded the rooting package but on extraction i am getting another winrar file and odin but no tar file further extraction of winrar file i am getting a file known as z file

  18. Do we need to Wipe data/factory reset and select Wipe Cache partition after rooting process is completed??

      • Hi Neal,
        I am unable to go to recovery mode by pressing the buttons as you described.
        How do i delete partition then?

        • Its not showing any error message its just simply booting normally. Any how now i have successfully installed EXTRAordinary ROM 3.4 and can access recovery mode from menu!.
          ext4 manager is installed when opened, it shows an error message “ACF-ROOT kernal was not detected, ext4 manager may not work properly” .. is there anything wrong?

          That was a nice adventure :-). Its working really fine. Missing some stock apps though.
          Thanks for all the advises.
