    Hey guys, I know this is a no-no to ask these simple questions, but I have googled, gone onto the common links thread and searched this forum and I cannot figure out how to root my Droid Pro. I tried searching for z4root in the market, cannot find it. I tried scanning the QR, didn't work. Is z4root not working anymore? Did they take it off the market? Is there another way to root the droid pro? Thanks in advance for the help.

    Z4root is down from the market but if you Google z4root apk you can find a mirror.

    Ok great, thanks for the help. But once I download the .apk file how do I get it onto my android? Do I need another third party app? Or can I just click and drag it onto my Droid by connecting it to my computer via USB?

    You can either download it on your comp and then drop it on to your SD card and then use a file manager to find and intstall it. Or you could cut out the middle man and download it from your phones browser and then use you're file manager to find and instal it.

    Once the dl'd is done (phone), all you have to do is drag down your notification bar and touch the "download complete" notification and it will send you to the install screen. Make sure you have the box checked in Settings > Applications to allow installs not from the market and USB Debugging checked in Settings > Applications > Development.

    Did you update it to gingerbread? Nothing will root that on the pro right now.
