    Go to the settings of your folders app and make sure it is allowed to show root. They aren't automatically set up to do that. And depending on your program you have to get read/write permission.

    Try "file explorer" from the market. In settings set for root access and write.

    I am in Thailand trying to do this. Without a Verizon SIM card I cannot access the phone. So when I do the steps to keep root I cannot install the apps.

    Is there a work around?

    You can use rsd lite and the ics fastboot files, then just root after. You could also use the ics tool in my signature.
