    dancedroidhi everybody, dancedroid new to the root thing, already did my research, i kno about flashing roms and recovery image and the diffrents things u can control, im trying to go the Z4 way since that seems the easiest, however i thnk im not finding proper links to download the app. i downloaded wut i thought was the app and tried opening it via Astro file manager, but when i click on the file no option pops up to open it, i have literally been searching and reading all day and cant take it anymore so if someone would be kind enough to please help me it would be VERRRY much appreciated :)

    If you have the original Droid, and are up to date, Z4 won't work.

    You need to do Root Droid 1 - regardless of OS version <--that or [APP]SuperOneClick v1.6.5 (Root, Unroot, Enable Non-Market App, Get UNLOCK code) - xda-developers <--that. I recommend the first method, if only because it is better documented on what it does and how it does it (and exactly what you need to do). The process should be about the same length regardless of the method you choose.

    If you have another phone, [APP] z4root - xda-developers <-- that is where it z4root app is. I have no clue about the problem, as I have never ran that app.
