Before we can get into the actual rooting process you must make sure that you have the actual Samsung drivers installed in your Samsung Infuse. Secondly you must go to settings > applications > development and then enable USB debugging. After you are done with that connect your Samsung Infuse to your computer and allow the drivers to be configured, this usually takes around two to three minutes.

Once the commands are executed and you see your phone is connected, in the command prompt you must execute the following command, /data/local/GingerBreak. If the exploit is a success you will see it end with “[!] dance forever my only one”. In case your phone has hanged or not responding, take out the battery and do the root all over again. Once your exploit is completed, your command prompt will look something like “#”. After which you will continue on with your shell script and thus reboot your phone. Once your phone is rebooted, your root is done!
