Just popped in to let you know that my post no2 is NOT and index, but rather a reference post for people answering questions to refer to when helping. Just in case if anyone wondered why I needed it.

Thanks!
Check this out!

Download that image, download the su binaries and apk. Put all that in your directory with fastboot.exe, open a command prompt.

Code:
fastboot boot boot.img
When the phone is booted make sure adb debugging is enabled. Then proceed.

Code:
adb shell mount -o remount,rw /system
adb push su /system/bin/
adb push Superuser.apk /system/app/
adb shell chmod 0655 /system/bin/su
adb shell chmod 0655 /system/app/Superuser.apk
adb reboot
Now, I haven't yet run this, as far as I know, no one has, but that should be it
