I want to root it so that I can do a complete backup because some of the apps i.e Fliq Notes will not backup to my laptop or SA card because their greedy and what me to subscribe to a cloud system. So I want to root it but have never done it before. Can anyone here who has successfully done it please give me some instruction or if someone knows of a repair company in Long Beach Ca who does it, please let me know. I would prefer to do it myself so that I can learn how but if I'm going to end up with a bricked phone I'll let someone else do it.
, it is a one click app. i don't know that it has been confirmed on a version that old, but it should be backwards compatible i would think.
there are other exploits like motochopper and motopocalypse, but you would have to look through your devices forum to try and determine which one would be relevant for your older os version.
