Default [Q] Root with Elelinux's Android 2.3.7 (Light)

(This may sound like a dumb question, but I'm a noob and I've never rooted an Android device before. I've done a jailbreak a few times, though.)

So today I've installed Elelinux's Android 2.3.7 on my HTC Hero G2 Touch. I'm looking for a way to root my device. I've found one here, but I'm not sure if it will work because it says I need Android version 2.1 while I have 2.3.7.

Does anyone know a way to root my device on this version?

your already rooted!

theres no way you would have been able to install that rom if you weren't rooted BUT you say you've never rooted an android device before

was the phone brand new when you bought it or was it second hand? because if its second hand its possible that the previous owner had already rooted the device

ROM: Viper X
Kernel: Stock

I bought it from my brother a few months ago and I can acces the recovery menu and the bootloader, so I think he has rooted it before. I said I never rooted it before.

But still, I can't acces my internal memory or do I need another app for that?

File Manager by Rhythm software will do the job and it is freeware..

To see all file-system folders just tap "Up" until it is disabled...

I'm using ES File Explorer. It also does the job.
