    A Big Fat Disclaimer: "As always, you are ultimately responsible for any root-related activities on your phone."
    You should understand not only the benefits of rooting, but also any possible consequences (voided warranty, boot-loops, bricking, etc.) that might occur as a result of your root-related actions.

    AndroidForums.com / Phandroid.com, its owner, and staff are not liable for any root actions you might undertake as a result of information used from this site.

    Reading, researching, understanding, and carefully following the published steps and instructions can go a long way towards helping to make your rooting efforts a successful one.

    device specific ADB-drivers

    3. Download & install this Chinese software from http://www.shuame.com/, thank you shuame.....

    In case you don't understand what you do:

    On Website press blue download-button with arrow pointing downwards

    The download is a bit slow (10kb/sec), but is only 10mb

    4. On your device: turn on USB-debugging

    On your PC:

    5. Run Software, then plug your device to USB-Port, wait until it has been recognized it (in
