    Pulled from the Market. So if you don't already have it you cant get it from there. I don't know if there are apk's that can be used floating around or not.

    It is a one-click root method that will work on most or certain Droid devices...

    What file manager are you using.

    I am using astro, and all I had to do was go into my download file, press on the zip file for z4, and select to run the program. Install took care of itself.

    You may have to go into your applications setting first to check to allow non-market apps to be installed.

    Dropbox works well

    I like Dropbox. It's a free app.

    If you don't have an account is you'll please use this link to set up your account it will increase my storage amount.

    https://www.dropbox.com/referrals/NTExMDkzMDc2OQ?src=global0

    It lets you easily move files in either direction between your computer and phone.

    Install Astro file manager. It'll be under download and should just be an .apk.

    If im correct, you weren't able to download this by using your phone. If so, you will have to copy it to your sd card from you pc or laptop. Do this by usb. Make sure debugging mode is on and go to mass storage mode. Drag .apk from computer to sd card. The file should then be on your phone afteryou disconnect and let the sd card mount. Use astro or root explorer(this is what I use) and click on the .apk. (it will be under sd card) it should ask you to install. Click install and after it installs open the apk. choose root and you should be good to go
