    So I am confused. Do I need to get the sbf file and use RSD lite? Or just use that droidroot app?

    Thanks guys. I tried everything to get method 1 to work. Over and over I tried with no success. I eventually used z4root and it worked without a hitch. Thanks for your help. I do have one question though. What should I use to back up? It seemed that the bootstrap thing had a broken link. I could not find it. Any advice for that? Thanks

    I'm an idiot. I didn't realize it was in the market. I have it now. Thanks a bunch.

    You're not an idiot. You are just learning like me.
