1- dl the zip that Vadim posted in the roms and mods section. LINK
2- connect your phone via usb (or use an sd card adapter). In your pull down menu, hit mount (or connect) to usb
3- choose the correct drive that your phone is connected to (make sure that you can see your camera folder etc.)
4- don't open the zip that you have just downloaded, place the entire zip on the main "menu" (root) of your sd card.
5- disconnect your usb cable and wait for your phone to finish preparing sd card. (you'll see that in your notification bar)
6- power your phone off.
7- hold volume up and push and hold power until your phone boots into recovery. (about 5-10 seconds)
8- using your volume buttons, scroll to update from sd card and press power to select.
9- scroll to the "update.zip" that you placed in your sd card and select.
10- reboot and tadaa! Your rooted enjoy!
11- THANK VADIM FOR POSTING THIS ZIP RIGHT BEFORE A LARGE (small) GROUP OF PEOPLE WENT COMPLETELY INSANE!
