    How does one root / GPA 15 / Kernel 0.3? 2011 - new methods appear. What do you recommend? Z4Root?

    I had been running a stock phone from March until last weekend. SuperOneClick did it all for me and my D1 was rooted again. As for which methods are preferred...all I know is that one worked for me. It was much much faster than how I rooted in Jan of 2010. Good luck.
