Download it, and extract it twice to get the kernel.bin.md5. Than download an install Cygwin, if you are using windows, to get shell commands. If you have linux you don't need it. Than copy kernel.bin.md5 in you cygwin home folder (you've set this folder during installation). Now run Cygwin and enter thos commands:
Code:
tar cvf theNameOfKernel.tar kernel.bin.md5
 md5sum -t theNameOfKernel.tar >> theNameOfKernel.tar
 mv theNameOfKernel.tar theNameOfKernel.tar.md5

You use this repacked kernel in second phase of flashing, when you repeat the steps. That's it! And remember, don't expect that everything will be made for you, sometimes you need to put in some effort and do it by yourself. The satisfaction you will get, will be the best reward you can get !

If you don't understand this procedure, please use google or some other search engine to get the answers you need. If you still don't know what you are doing, ask in the thread, I am sure someone will answer your question.

Have a happy new year everybody, and the best of luck!

This is the way if you do not have your version here. Or use prerooted version from here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1985199

It is probably updated firmware, so you can find the one that was before update and use that.

I followed qzem's instructions to get the firmware I needed (VSLK1, Movistar Argentina) and applied it to my phone with no problems at all, now it's rooted . I uploaded it so that those of you who need it and are lazy to do it for yourselves can download it:

Code:
www . mediafire . com/download.php?uh4skgt5it4g4b7

(just erase those spaces after the dots, I had to add them because the board does not allow me to post links)

Thanks for your help people!

example mine is (I9070DXLPY) mean :

I9070 = Model
DX = Region code or Network Code
LP = Release-Date of the Firmware
Y = Revision

1) install Cygwin if u using windows if LINUX no need..
2) extract ur downloaded ROM twice to get kernel.bin.md5..
3) copy the kernel.bin.md5 file to ur Cygwin root (example : C:\cygwin\home)
4) Run Cygwin.
5) just like the previous qzem's post said : http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1660419

(i will use my region [DX] for example)
write the code into Cygwin

Code:
tar cvf DXLPYl.tar kernel.bin.md5
 md5sum -t DXLPY.tar >> DXLPY.tar
 mv DXLPY.tar DXLPY.tar.md5

6) finish!!

now u know what to do with it right??

Hi,

I'm come from Vietnam. My first firmware is DXLD1 but since i update it via Wifi it change to DXLK2.

So i can't find where to download this firmware to root my phone (Android 2.3.6)

PDA: i9070DXLK2
CSC: i9070LBLK2

I tried this menthod but stuck

I download my Firmware at Samsung-Updates.com-GT-I9070_XXV_1_20121122182452_7s90q6qokf.zip

But i can only extract 1 time and get 2 files: (i use 7zip to extract)

I9070DXLK2.HOME.tar.md5 and SS_DL.dll

When i extract second time, it's fail.

I don't know how to extract it twice to get kernel.bin.md5

Can you please tell me the way to extract it or can you extract it for me.

Thanks!

change the "I9070DXLK2.HOME.tar.md5" to "rar" file..which mean your new file will be named as "I9070DXLK2.HOME.tar.md5.rar" .. after that, open that file then you'll see the kernel.bin.md5 inside of it..

GOODLUCK !!

click thanks if this post help you

Try just removing md5, see if it open.tar file. Do not dubleclick, browse for it in 7-zip.
