Root Samsung Phones Running Android 2.3.x Without Flashing Kernels or Executing Binaries

This should work for many (or perhaps every) Samsung phones on Android 2.3.x

1. reboot your phone in recovery (do not do anything here)
2. reboot in normal mode
3. adb shell rm /data/log/recovery_log.txt (even if fails it is ok)
4. adb shell “ln -s /data/local.prop /data/log/recovery_log.txt”
5. reboot your phone in recovery (do not do anything here)
6. reboot in normal mode
7. adb shell “echo ro.kernel.qemu=1 > /data/local.prop”
8. reboot again
9. adb shell … heeey you are root.
10. Install your favorite root tools: Superuser.apk, su, etc.
