Default How do i root this stupid thing

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

if your already s off-d then it wont work because your already rooted. Now just flash a custom rom

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 --
