    what I had to do was erase every folder i had on my laptop computer dealing with root because i had like 3 root folders from 3 different sites. And I downloaded the file from that site and rooted. I did it on saturday night and it worked fine

    hey keep this thread posted on your mistakes and what you did to correct it. It will be a good link for another person looking to root and have a similar question/concern
