    Sorry about the advice on easy root as I've always used the long way to rooting, not sure about super 1-click either, but I do know that once you do figure it out, up on the d-pad + power will take you into the bootloader where you can flash recovery. X + power will take you to recovery once it's installed so you can install roms. Another way to get recovery on your phone is to download rom manager after your phone is rooted then flash clockwordmod recovery from there.

    Yes.

    Remember you wont have a sticky recovery until you flash the ROM.

    You should be able to. Just remember to always backup and wipe everything before installing roms. Good luck!

    You aren't rooted properly.

    Do it again with superoneclick or do it with link one in my signature.

    I wish I could help you.

    I'm very proficient with the link, but I know next to nothing about SuperOneClick, other than I spend a lot of time helping people who have used it or another one click root that didn't work.

    Sorry. GL
