    Hello Neil. I have a GT-I9000M with stock 2.3.3 UGKG3 just installed. I have been unable to find a root process specific to this phone. Your process above looks promising. Would this one work on my phone? Is there hope for me?

    I have the exact phone and version (GT- with stock 2.3.3 UGKG3). Following these instructions to the letter I get a failure. Now my phone can only be in Download mode or these funny icons (small cell phone and pc connected with a dotted line) appear. Can’t boot to recovery mode etc.

    I’ve removed the battery for over 3 minutes. Same. Rebooted my laptop and repeated the rooting process. Same. What can I do? Am I screwed?

    Mike (please email me directly if you can)
