or am i best getting MoDaCo r1 rom
im right in thinking that installing a cutom rom will root the phone as well
then i can install the following apps
and so on
all this might be taboo but the apps i see online from torrent sites are they safe to install can you install them,

There is a MoDaCo R2 ROM also (newer than R1). I'm using R2 and I'm very happy with it. Yes, installing a custom ROM will root your phone automatically.
http://android.modaco.com/content/samsung-galaxy-s-s-modaco-com/312383/06-jul-r2-jg1-modaco-custom-rom-for-samsung-galaxy-s-with-online-kitchen/ Click the link to download MoDaCo ROMs, there is a prebake version of R2 in case you don't want to pay (but of course you should support the developers by paying for the ad-free account) ;) You need firmware JG1 flashed on your phone before you flash R2, just read the instructions, all the links you need are there. Don't try to flash R2 over the firmware you have, it's not officially supported!
Titanuim Backup is free for MoDaCo ad-free members.
No pirate versions are ever really safe, not for computers and not for phones... If you want to be absolutely safe, you must buy all the software you're going to use. Of course, if you want to be completely safe you should not be thinking about flashing anything else but Samsung official firmwares!

had a look on MoDaCo site i have downloaded the r2 i get 3 folders inside,but i can not find a jg1 for my f/w my baseband verison is i9000xxjfs i can find all other baseband but not mind can i use a similar one thank you for any help
sorry i must seem a dumb ass,the jg1do i rename that update the rar that is,and the r2 do i also rename that update after i have installed jg1
if thats the case i can just use the phone itself to update reather than use software based is that right
