Does anyone know how to root the Samsung Infuse (i997)? I have tried two methods already:

  • Visionary
  • Samsung One Click Root

Visionary simply doesn't work, while the Samsung One Click Root manages to push the to the sdcard, but the Samsung recovery rejects it based on signature verification failure, as it is the FroYo supplied recovery.

I am hesitant to try Project Voodoo, because I'm afraid to brick the device with a non-compatible Odin tar image.

While the rageagainstthecage exploit is not working with the Infuse, you can root it with the psneuter exploit. Easiest way to do it is with the SuperOneClick application.
