    Take a screenshot of where you have Pete's Root tools and of what is inside.

    It looks like it can't find ADB, but if it's still setup correctly, then I'll just have you install the SDK and add the platform-tools directory to your PATH variable.

    In that case I highly recommend that you go the manual route. At this point all you are missing is the ABD interface, which comes with the Android SDK.

    I used the manual route as opposed to the one click methods, and I'm rooted perfectly fine.
