First, reboot into your bootloader/fastboot mode. (Volume + Power Up, or adb reboot bootloader)

Verified, was able to root my friends with this method. Thank you.

I can't believe that its root process was really this simple, like the n1s.... I wonder if google is actually okay with us rooting our phones...
