I 'm completely new to rooting. I had this Galaxy Rugby GT-5690 sitting for a couple of months while I was using my Lg Optimus LTE. I wanted to root a basic phone i.e.galaxy Rugby, so even if I am safe even if I mess it up. But when I turned it back on it asked me for the password which i have forgotten now. I followed the instructions and tried to start it in the recovery mode. It shows up the android recovery icon and then it asks me to confirm password. It does not show the list to choose clear data option now(or any other option or list for that matter).

5. Now choose reboot system now and confirm with reboot.
Your Samsung Rugby Smart should have root now.
I used a similar tutorial from forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1317394
I would really appreciate anything helpful.
