OK, so this article is for my techie followers more than everyone. My cell phone is a Samsung Vibrant, it is T-mobile’s Galaxy S phone.  The thing I love about the Galaxy S is how Samsung handled it.  Rather than doing what most phone producers do and lock a phone into one carrier (Like AT&T and the iPhone), they went with over 100 carriers worldwide.

The down side was that “rooting” the phone has been elusive. For those of you who are not familiar with it, since Android is a Linux-based OS, you can gain root access to it, and do things like remove applications that were installed by the carrier. Today, I found a kit that works for the Galaxy S, with a “1-button” root process….  Here’s the article:
