Hi, I don’t know how to flash the root file. Could you please explain more specific? After we flash the recovery, do we insert the battery and hold “Volume down” + “Power button” right away? I didn’t see anything then.
When I open the phone and connect to the computer in the usual way, I cannot see the Root folder either…
I look forward to you reply!
Thanks for your help! 🙂

Thanks for this tutorial. I think everything went fine untill step 3. I have the same question as pol 2304; how do i ‘flash’ the root with superuser 3.2 after moving the unzipped (?) superuser 3.2.zip file to the root of the SD card ?
Thanks for your answer and this tutorial!
Best regards from Holland/amsterdam

hi how long does it take for the “s/w download” to finish???

I waited 5-10 minuts, then I chose “discard APX” in windows and disconnected when “s/w download” still was running. After inserting my battery and booting my phone, it was rooted.
