Problem rooting Galaxy Y

When I try to root my Samsung Galaxy Y, by using "update from SD card" option present in Recovery Mode, an error appears stating that "Can't mount SD card". I have tried using a different SD too but still no solution. How can I get my phone rooted ??

I'm a beginner in rooting & using custom ROMs.

Also how about this ROM

Can i install it without rooting with above method(or any other) ?

this is exactly how you don't root. first read about rooting and flashing custom recovery, etc else you'll end up with a dead mobile.

@Sam : Download link is not working in the link given by you for Unlock root & I'm finding it difficult to find another working link. Also no working links for Z4root yet

u don't need to root ur phone to install this rom...
-first download the rom and place it in ur sd card only in ur sd card not in any folder

-den power off

-den VOLUME UP+HOME+POWER together..

-den Wipe data/factory reset

-den wipe cache partition

-install zip from sd card

-select the rom and then the yes among the many no's

remember that in recovery mode touchscreen wont work ... so use home button for selecting and power for back

another thing to note is that u will be automatically rooted after installing this rom

Note:My SD card contains an "update.zip" file required for rooting stock ROM

@Sam : Due to problems with my home's internet, Unlock Root's download is stopping at 99% (in fact about 80% of the files I try to download stops downloading at 99%)

Actually its a problem with most of BSNL home broadband connections. But no problem in browsing cafe(corruption). Once optic fibres are laid, problems will be solved...

I downloaded this ROM

OK, i rooted my phone with update package. Actually the problem was with memory card(8GB), which i got bundled with Nokia 5800. With my phone's bundled SD card, update was applied, now i will try custom ROMs.

ROM manager says my phone is not supported(for CWM recovery ), what should i do to install it manually ??

download CWM separately...
and as i said previously flashing this rom doesnt require cwm...stock recovery is fine...

P.S:dont use this rom...amal das from xda makes many roms but they are quite buggy...only weui is decent...

other good roms are creeds fusion and chobitsdigitals...

another bit of advice:
wait for a couple of months ..we may get a fully working cm port for our galaxy y...
