    Those 235 might not have known how. It's been forever since I rooted my D1, almost 2 years, but since it doesn't have GB you might be able to use z4root. Install the apk and let it do its thing. It was much more complicated when I did it the first time but I think it's been simplified. Good luck, I hope that works.

    Edit: definitely use the link the above rck76 gave you and you should be fine.
