Wifes Phone iPhon4 5.1 Jailbroke
http://dl.dropbox.com/u/10868571/Sup...-ShortFuse.zip and use that to root. I have tested it and it works just fine (you may have to disable usb debugging, but thats no big deal)..
that is a windows program, if you ave a mac, i cannot help...
You unzipped the file and ran superoneclick.exe file while the phone was booted up normally (not in recovery, and not in the bootloader)?
Like I said before, you may or may not have to have usb debugging on (menu > settings > applications > development, try it with it checked.. it it isnt working, try it with it unchecked..
Do you have the correct driver installed also? http://dl.dropbox.com/u/10868571/USB..._bit_4.2.0.zip for 32 bit and http://dl.dropbox.com/u/10868571/USB..._bit_4.2.0.zip for 64-bit
after the phone is rooted, you will have to download Rom Manager to flash a recovery (clockwork or SPRecovery)

Also, some have said that z4root still works as well and you don't need a computer. I have it in my collection linked in my sig.
Oh and BTW you DO have to have usb debugging on for super one root and/or z4root to work as they both use the RATC attack to root your phone.
A lot of people have had a problem with the OTA screwing up the root. I don't think anyone asked but were you rooted before? Or are you trying to root this version of Android? It seems that way, so you could try a complete factory reset and that might remove the update. Root from there, block the OTA when it tries to install and put a ROM like BB V.06.1 on the phone to eliminate the OTA problem. This process would kinda bypass the whole FRG83 problem. Good luck dude
Long live the "D"
D3-Maverick 4.0 witta hotspot hack!
First thing, thanks for the help.... second, this phone has never been rooted and I tried Z4 debug on and off...sometimes goes for a cople mins and then just stops? on win 7 super root and the rte lite wont find my phone thru usb? i am thinking removing the update sounds really smart?
anything else you guys can think of? I want to get a virgin mobile $25 unlimted date plan and root there droid phone to do wifi tether for my google fake ipad wifi...
