Default Rooting 2.1

I have installed Z4Root and activated the root function. However, when opening Root Explorer, it indicates my phone has not yet been rooted.

What may be the issue here?

Hi,
I had no issues with z4root installation and rooting.

I prepped by checking the USB debugging to on. Shut down the phone and pulled the battery. I then installed z4root and choose persistent/ permanent root.

Worked like a charm.

Thanks.

After reboot and Z4Root, my phone continues to present a process.gapps error and reboots.

Any suggestions?

UPDATE: I just did a hard reset.
