    Im no noob to this. I was rooted for a long time (more like 3 months) but I sbf'd because my phone was messing up. I do have z4 root but im really just wanting to manually do it just for the know how. I have tried the Multiple phones - Root them, unroot them. But that confused me. Ive looked for a while and i cant seem to find anything amazing. If you could just post a link to give me directions that would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks

    the multiple phones root them unroot them thing is the only manual root that i know of. there may be one that uses adb or something but if you want to try manual roting i think that's your best choice. it may look a little daunting but it's really not all that difficult.

    I've given it a shot although where it says change permissions im lost cause I don't know how to do that. So I ignored it and then I go into TE and I type in the stuff and when I got to one point it says file cannot be found or doesn't exist or something. I've tried 4 times now and im just about to give up and use z4. And it appears my phone wont receive GB pushed so ill just wait till everyone gets it.
