download the universal rooting file put on microusb and insert into phone.
power off, turn on phone by power and home button. apply update via usb.
note I didn't use s.chan's as it was corrupt. So I found a universal root file at xda.
install samsung keiss on pc so that it installs the samsung usb driver. (this caused my floppy drive to continuous search, so after unlock, I uninstalled it)
I already had android sdk since I unlocked my nexus s myself.
then run android terminal emulator
follow the instructions on s.chan

works just fine. no issues. took me 30 mins because I had to download and install samsung keiss.
this phone was for my dad. It's not as fast, but it was very responsive touchpad which is good.
excellent replacement for lg chocolate 2, which is a POS. It will be for put up for sale for cheaps if anyone wants it.
edit: no custom rom put in, left it simple for dad.
DONT USE THAT METHOD! IT HAS A HIGH RISK OF BRICKING YOUR PHONE! /caps
