    Please spend some time looking around at the basic guides that so many of our great members have posted. If you can't find your answer(and answers to questions you didnt know you even had) then please come back.

    Further, don't be so impatient. 7 views is nothing. When there are 300 with nothing, ask again. If you aren't willing to learn a little more please don't root.

    You will be better served by looking in the Hacking Section, there are threads there explaining a lot more about things like this. There's several things involved, root, and developer tools, so go down several sections from general discussions.

    Look. We gave you the best safe advice. You need to learn this stuff because if you don't you will brick your phone. If you had "looked" you would know these answers. Like I have said, there are several great guides available that walk you through rooting and rooting terms. Use them. We aren't in the business of spoon feeding.

    First, I'm not stuck up, Second, I only directed you to the place where you will find more answers to questions you have. Go down and do a lot more reading. There's guides posted, but you can mess up IF you don't fully understand what you're doing.
