Cool Root method
Hi ...
I had some problem with the supertool (tried 2,3 and 1,3 )
2,3 just got stuck (10+ min) and 1,3 went to flashing rooted but phone rebooted without root .
I have a S-on unlocked marvel...

So I read some other threads . I put together this method (Credit to various ppl - sorry forgot the posts) :

1.You need fastboot.exe adb.exe adbwinapi.dll and adbwinusbapi.dll from the unlock process (google it otherwise)...
CWM recovery.img( Attached as zip file

Flash the CWM using this code from command prompt in folder where you put all the above files :
adb reboot-bootloader
after the phone enters HBOOT(white bg with color text)
fastboot flash recovery recovery.img
2.Reboot . CWM is now installed . You may wish to backup current ROM .

3.Download the signed su zip file from "superuser web site" [i used this link ]

4. put this zip file onto your sdcard and reboot into recovery :
adb reboot recovery

5.Choose "install from zip file" and select the file .

This will install both the su binary and superuser apk

6. reboot ....


Thnx in advance for your thanks
