None of the automated "SuperOneClick" methods worked for me. I tried all the combinations of suggestions with the usb settings: charge only/media sync/storage/uplugging/replugging, etc. It would always hang at step #6. Finally I just broke down and followed the manual "Zergrush" instructions step by step. When something failed I just started over again at the beginning. The only kinda confusing part for me was determining when and where to use quotation marks with the commands. (I remember Dos but I'm not a linux guy sorry) Note: I just learned what Rooting was about 48 hours ago so I'm totally new to this. Removing all that verizon bull!@#$ felt great. It's like going to your friend's house and stripping all the preloaded crap off their new Dell. (everyone has a friend like that, right?) This is my first post here. I just wanted to thank everyone for the help and assure everyone that 2.3.3 can definitely be rooted. I removed almost 70 worthless apps! Thanks!!!
