    it tells me to do this

    Navigate to where you unzipped the ZIP file and go to the folder you just created (For Example: If you created the folder in C:\Android, then you would type in Command Prompt: cd c:\Android).

    i dont know how to do that

    Go to that folder, right click on it and one of the options that pops up is "open command window here"....click on that prompt.
    Or, go to your start menu, click on start, click on run, then in the window that pops up type in cmd.

    i merged the two threads together as they are about the same topic.

    now all you need is a recovery and then you can start flashing roms.

    ok so i merged the two threads together. lets just keep any questions you have on rooting in this thread. commenting on the same question on multiple threads makes it hard to help you.

    now to your questions, no the next step says that your phone should be in the bootloader menu. select fastboot. and go from there.

    android system recovery i have several different options to choose
     
  22. ocnbrze

    ocnbrze DON'T PANIC!!!!!!!!!

    at the bottom it should say RA supersonic 2.3 or something like that. if you see options in recovery then you can proceed to step 3 of the guide. you can either stay on stock and flash the su file or you can flash a custom rom. in the guide i recommend mikg3.11. it is waaaaaaay better then stock.

    i would first reboot the phone and then decide what you want to do for step 3 and go from there. it is the first option listed (reboot system now).
