    I would advise against one-click root apps btw...they've caused alot of issues for alot of users. Follow that guide to the letter and you'll be fine.

    Welcome. You might want to wait till you have access to a CC. You will need a couple of apps from the market to ensure you root safely.

    P.S.- I'm no mod but try and only post your question in one thread. Plenty of helpful people here, you'll get all the help you need without double posting.

    Good luck.
