Download this file:

Deposit Files


Then extract all to a pre-determined folder of your choice. Run the .exe file. Plug your phone in, (I didn't work for me when I had the memory card mounted) Press ROOT <===the button at the top left. Wait roughly 7 seconds...

Done


BTW the steps i just laid out for you are steps to root your phone.


Need any more help, just ask


Yours faithfully,

Um, now I'm not sure but I think that it is possible as I have done it. (Same phone as you)

But as I say I don't know everything.

I would say do it only because I have done it
