Okay well I have searched a lot on this issue and I need help. When I first updated to 2.2.2 official update I tried z4root (which did not work of course) now onto the case of gingerbreak when I use this (usb debugging is on) it just sits there trying to root but never does. I have tried at least 25 times with versions 1.0, 1.1, and 1.2 none with any success. Now I want to know if there are any other ways to root my ascend on the computer an apk or something or if I should give up hope of rooting my ascend ever again. (i was rooted on 2.1) thank you to anyone that tries to help or gives me any information on this problem.
