Not rooted yet?
Doesn't look like the Pantech Element has been rooted yet? I've been able to download the drivers and adb shell into the device. I tried 2 different versions of SuperOneClick with no success. I tried a few other methods, can't remember off the top of my head, and no success there either.
Until this device is rooted, maybe we can use this thread to keep track of what has been tried.
