How To Root the Samsung Infuse 4G (SuperOneClick Method)

If you have read our other How-To’s using the SuperOneClick method, you’ll notice that they are pretty easy to follow.  The instruction set below is in the same vein and if you stick to it, you shouldn’t run into any problems.  If you do run into any problems, you can always use the Comments section below the post to complain and we’ll be here to solve them as best as we can! Read on then for the rooting guide for the AT&T Infuse 4G.

I.  Before You Begin

1.  Download the root file and the drivers required for this procedure.

2.  Extract the downloaded drivers to a folder on your desktop and run Kies_Mini_For_Captivate_11011_4.exe.  Reboot your Windows PC after it is done installing.

3.  Enable USB Debugging on your device. To do this, go to Settings -> Applications -> Development and check the USB Debugging box, when your device is connected.

4.  There’s no need to back up anything, but do so anyways if you want to feel safer.

II.  Rooting the Infuse 4G

1.  Extract that you downloaded to a folder on your desktop.

2.  Connect your device to your PC and again, make sure USB Debugging is enabled.

3.  Run SuperOneClick.exe from the extracted root folder.  Your antivirus may throw up a warning saying that the file is not safe – ignore that.

4.  Select GingerBreak under the Exploit section if you are running Android 2.3 OS.

5.  Finally, click on Root.

6.  If the procedure went okay, SuperOneClick should say, “Your device is rooted” with an option to donate to the developer.  Click on Yes if you want to or No if you simply want to exit.  To confirm that you are indeed rooted, disconnect your device and check the application drawer for an app called Superuser.  If you find this installed, you are rooted!!

    How to get drivers

  • gwm209

    The exploit suggested does not show up. What have I done wrong?

  • Herp McDerpson

    It freezes after ”Running GingerBreak”

  • Flustered

    Also use 2.3.6 and this always stops. Near 24 man hours into this and no joy. As far as I can see one would have to remove not disable any antivirus as all of them “isolat, quarentine or delete” the active file. Tried putting it on to the phone card and always get “no application can open this file” from the phone. Even the IT fellow at work fails w/ it. Screw AT&T forever. Can hardly wait to get away from that garbage company now. Samsung will not even allow download of kies from the website. If a fix exists I am unable to find it.

    Doesn’t this work for 2.2.1?

    • Dax Krishna

      Hello Robert,

      Yes, it does!

  • RollsTRoyce

    2.3.6 on Infuse. Freezes at “Running GingerBreak…” how do I get it to work?


    superoneclick is crap for the samsung infuse 4g because it just freezes in the process and odin3 will not let you select a PDA document that is a .rar file….it has to be a .zip file……..its all crap….dont worry with an infuse, just get a galaxy s3..much easier to update, root, and put in cm10.1 mode….much cooler too
