    Yes you can root your phone from your phone but first you need to install an alternative boot-recovery application. To do so you need a windows PC and need to install a program called RSD Lite.

    Read through post 13 in the first link in my signature. The 3rd link in my sig covers the various issues people have had with getting rsd lite to work, in case you have any.

    If you apply a rom or theme - backup first!
    If you don't know how to backup...Stop until you do.
    hint: I name my backups like this: sg6.0_20100428 or ss4.2_20100626 to easily find them later. rom and date.

    Then you don't root. Someone somewhere must have a windows PC you can use if you don't have one. Some have tried to use a Mac and a Windows vm with varying degrees of success (I think). RSD Lite runs on windows. RSD Lite is needed.

    I was going to suggest the library, but then figured they probably have them locked down so you can't install RSD Lite on it. The same would be true of internet kiosks too.
