    There's lots of threads on the forum for rooting, you just need to search for them.

    Your using GB 2.3.5, I would have thought you would be better to update your phone to ICS(ice cream sandwich)first and then root.

    thank you
    Who better than to direct you to than 'Chainfire' on XDA developers.
    This long post is very informative and gives instructions on how to root, along with the root files.

    Basically, you choose a root file (scroll down through the Orange/brown links) to find your root kernel.
    Put the unzipped file into Odin's PDA.
    Connect phone in download mode and with USB debugging on.
    Ensure that Odin recognises your phone and box turns yellow.
    Start flash - Chainfire says if this takes more than 30 seconds you need practice.

    How do you know you're rooted?
    Look in apps for Superuser.
