    In my case, it worked only at the second attempt. I first rooted and it failed, I un-rooted and the device said it was not rooted. I tried again and it was rooted. On a Galaxy 5 (GT-i5500).

    Great article. My samsung galaxy 5 is still on Froyo. I will use your guide to install the custom ROM. As for backups, I use ColorNote that lets my sync/backup via FB or Gmail. thanks again
