I've been trying to do this for over a week now with no avail. Before you reply, please do not copy/paste instructions from google based on z4root or anything else since it happened on another forum's thread more than once and of course, it did nothing to help since yes, I know google.com too. With z4root, the system freezes when the app says "aquiring root shell". I tried doing this with Kies running and all, and nothing. Installed new version, nothing. I was told to do it with Gingerbreak but I can't get the damn app to run, can anyone help me do this? I tried it with Astrofile but there is no function on Astro that opens or runs the Gingerbreak application. I also cannot move the app form my sd card to the droid, I don't know how to do this. There are a bunch of instructions on how to move from droid to sd but none from sd to droid. Also, how can I access my droid files with these file manager applications? everytime I use them, they seem to only browse the sd card, why? Any help (as long as it is not a direct copy/paste from google) will be greatly appreciated.
