    1. Download framaroot version 1.6.1 and move to your phone and install.

    2. Select "install supersu" instead of superuser from the drop down box.

    2. Click on Gandalf and wait until it tells you to reboot.. then reboot.

    3. Once rebooted, open up supersu and go to settings and uncheck "enable superuser"

    4. Re-enable superuser by checking the same box again.

    5. Scroll down to "default access" and select "grant" AT YOUR OWN RISK.

    Lol, that's the same way I used to root this bad boy, I bought mine on December 19th last year when Radio Shack had the sale for $50, I went and grabbed one and haven't been disappointed yet, I love the fact that it has the option to set primary storage in the Storage section of the phone settings all the way at the bottom... :p :smokingsomb: :car:

    Initial problem with installing framaroot.apk.
    I created an account to download it,
    Downloaded directly to phone, no program would open it.
    I downloaded Root App Delete (high functionality, despite adverts),
    Installed apk after initiating apk manager scan.
    Directions for rooting were exact, expect a slight pause during su.
    Restart phone.

    I am using
    >Model C6750
    >SWare & baseband 2.006VZ (Verizon)
    >Build JZO54K on 4.1.2

    Verizon wireless; Purchased phone in November.

    Rooted to delete bloatware.
    Successful use with apps:
    * Root App Delete
    * iFont
    * Google Voice 'crack'

    Will update this post should any issue or questions arise. :)

    Thank you, darlin!!!

    You need to move the app to your external sdcard (or internal) and then install with the non-google app installer.

    Make sure you have the "unknown app install" checked under development options under settings as well.

    i installed the firmware update, the app seems to work, install supersu, super su updates binary and everything seems to go smooth, i set the app to prompt instead of grant, dont like apps to just have root access automaticaly. is the update what screwed me?

    (Edit) my build version is jzo54k

    (Edit) got it to work, you must grant all apps su access inside supersu. Not a fan of that but its what needs done. Great work to all who figured this out. If only now if we didnt have to grant su permission 100%.
  10. Thanks for the guide,

    I just rooted my $9.99 Hydro Edge.

    You should see the Super Root app in your app drawer when you have rooted successfully. Make sure you have followed the directions and have granted full access of the app.
