Root Your Gingerbread Device With Gingerbreak
Hacking at its best is what this community is all about. The more technology advances, new challenges arise and developers across the globe step up to the plate to try and tackle the obstacles that manufacturer’s put on devices, thus, preventing us from using them to their full potential. XDA moderator Chainfire brings us a slightly modified version of Gingerbreak, which was developed by The Android Exploid Crew. Chainfire basically modified it in such a way that the whole exploit would be installable via apk. This tool will remount /system read/write, install su binaries and superUser.apk in your system, regardless of the device. In case the apk fails to do this whole process for you, the moderator also provides instructions on how to do this by hand.
Chainfire has only tested this in the Galaxy S JVB Gingerbread rom. If this worked for you, please leave feedback as to what device you rooted with it.

If it doesn’t work… The APK will have extracted files into /data/local/tmp . You can try manually (be sure to reboot between each try) as follows:
