    Exclamation tried rooting, stuck in boot loop-HELP

    i just see "google" and a lock (unlocked). was following these steps (no experience with this lol)



    [TOOL] Root / Unlock - Unroot / Lock [Mac]


    hopefully i didn't brick it. i tried rebooting in recovery mode, but none of the options work, and my mac doesn't recognize the phone...

    Flash the su zip in clockwork mod. I'm guessing you tried to use the superboot file to root? That file no longer works. That only roots 4.0.2.
    Don't be scared, adb is your friend.

    He'll need to adb push the su.zip file to his phone first, then he'll need to fastboot flash whatever custom recovery he chooses. I recommend the one in my signature.

    Use the one I've attached below. This simply gives you the superuser.apk and injects the code needed to give you root access. Just flash this in a custom recovery. Like SBenson mentioned, the one in his sig is a very good option.
