    I have read through and not found anything related to this issue... or maybe I'm blind IDK. I have rooted other phones before but I've never had this issue. I can't use a usb cable with my phone, the port is effed. Me and my gf had Dinc2's and I whipped mine at a wall one day while angered so I got her a new phone and took hers. After I took her phone from her the usb port stopped working, I use my broken phone to charge, but don't have usb access anymore. I've been looking for the past 6 hours trying to find a way to root without usb access and came across an app called z4root... It doesn't appear that it works with the DINC2, as it just sits there. Is there a similar app or a way that I can root this without having the cable or usb access? There has to be some sort of way you would assume. It has android 2.3.4 stock as I didn't have the opportunity to root it before my fit of anger and the phone swap. My other option would be to swap out the internals on the phones if anyone has instructions on that if it is simple enough?

    Hey thanks, in the process of doing this... Only torx wrench sold in my town and it managed to remove every screw but the one it stripped so I have to go out of town tomorrow to find the right size and hope it can get the last screw out... but seems plausible that it will work.

    Oh no! All but one screw. At least you'll have the right screw driver to put it back together.
