So I gave Mr Root a shot, and can not find decent directions to save my life. So far, by fumbling around I have managed to add the superuser apk, and gained s-off. What now? When I try to finish rooting it says revolutionary exe not found, although I have already gotten a beta key and gained s-off??? Can someone post a mr root for morons step by step walk-through, so I can finish please

1) Download ROM Manager.
2) Flash CWM Recovery through ROM Manager.

Try flashing cwm through fastboot. There are directions everywhere on how to do it. Then flash superuser through cwm.

I knew nothing about rooting when I started exploring this process, and the best guide I found is here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1286324. Sounds like you've already done some of it, but on a whole, I think it will get you to where you want to be.

Hope this helps you along --
