here this may help, has pix etc to help you see whats done: Article : How to Root Any Android Device Manually I have put together a zip to run the adb commands for you. The part done in download mode via a nix live cs/usb with nautilus tho I cant make easier for u. Its about like moving things around in windows tho with the gui. Mercury-Root.zip Just download the zip to your PC, unzip and run the appropriate install for your OS (windows-install.bat for Windows and linux-install.sh for Linux) You will need the drivers for the Mercury installed and USB Debugging enabled on your phone and if there is a internet connection option when connecting usb. And again, this only does the first part that pushes the files to the phone n sets permissions.
