    Does'nt work, none of the many many many methods i have tried work. Hence why i put the request in a more public area as this section is not active. I did'nt see any point putting a request into a section thats not active in the slighest.

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

    ok after many googling (and i see you posting all over the forums....lol) it looks like this phone does not have any dev support so i do not think that it will be rootable at least for now. for me i always get a phone that has a good dev community behind the phone that i will be getting.

    and if you are running that latest firmware (ota) then any of the previous exploits like gingerbreak will not work. and that is why you should never accept ota's if you plan on rooting.

    also the devs usually stick to the more recent devices and the most popular as well. any of the galaxy s phones, note and note 2, any HTC device(they have a bootloader unlocker), and any other high end phones will have great dev support.....almost forgot about the nexus (google's phone) as well.

    if you do find a way to root your phne please let us know.....good luck
