Default [SOLVED] R800at Root Questions

I have been reading around the forum and over at androidforums.com but am still confused on the process. So just to clairfy this for me, for the r800at do you have to unlock the bootloader to root. I have read you do and I have read you dont. I have tried superoneclick and doomlords zergrush script and neither work...so now im trying to figure out if it has to be unlocked or not. Thanks.

well I guess thats good to know that I dont have to unlock the boot loader to root, but like I said both superoneclick and doomlords zergrush script are not working for me. So I guess now I have to figure out why there not working.

superoneclick gets stuck on step #7 and doomlords goes through and when its trying to write/modify/mount stuff each thing says permission denied, then it says completed/phone reboots/still no root.

Are you sure you have the right drivers? And which firmware version are you using?

All our current root methods don't work on stock firmware newer than the .62 build.

I use flashtool to root mine. In the advanced menu there is root then force zergrush. Works great just make sure you have the drivers installed.

Figured it out on my own!!! For any one else who may experience this problem it was easy.

1. Download flashtools
2. Download the .270 build http://www.mediafire.com/?s7vr35v675kqomx http://www.mediafire.com/?s7vr35v675kqomx
3. Flash the older build
4. Use flashtools to root
5. Update back to .285

I lied...when I updated back to .285 it lost root...guess ill be starting over!
