Hello and welcome to the forums!

I have merged your duplicate threads into this one in the all things root section where you will get the most help. I would start off by checking out the all things root guide at the top of the forum and seeing if there is any troubleshooting information there

Did you unzip the Zerg zip file?

Don't use zerg! Use t679 root zip. You can find it on the xda site. Look read and research. And you won't brick your phone. Zerg rush WILL NOT WORK.

Also, the version (2.3.5 vs 2.3.6) affects which root method to use. I got my phone last week and it was 2.3.5
