    I thought you said z4root worked -
    Run it again -
    It can take a few tries!

    Reboot the phone normal - It sounds like you are rooted you just didn't Flash Clockwork Recovery,,,,

    It is easy - Just take your time and follow every instruction - to the letter.
    If you miss a step...it won't work -

    reboot and go into Rom manager and Flash clockwork recovery -
    VERY IMPORTANT STEP

    IF - - - - You still aren't able to boot into Recovery -

    Try this
    --Open ROM manager.
    --Scroll down to the bottom and click "Flash Alternate Recovery"
    --After that is done running. Flash the ClockworkMod recovery again, at the top of ROM Manager.


    DON"T FORGET TO MAKE A BACKUP BEFORE YOU FLASH A ROM!

    If you have SuperUser app and you download Rom Manager and you follow the Cat's instruction you will be fine. If not let me know I will post the universal Androot APK for you that definitively works
