    There's different 2.2 there's 2.2.1 and 2.2.2 which one is very important. Also look in your apps if you see super user app then gingerbreak worked

    Yes, that's the same guide I used. I don't remember how long but I don't think it was 10 minutes. What is it doing? What have you done so far?

    If you have super user you are rooted gingerbreak won't install it unless it roots. Now you need to finish the steps in root without a computer.
