Did you extract all the files somewhere or just run the runme.bat inside the zip? Because it sounds like you are missing the files included in the zip. You have to extract the files from the zip for it to work. If that's not the case then feel free to post back I will attempt to assist, but it will be a few hours before I can get back on.

Well yea ping would work, it's in the system32 folder, as long as binaries root was completely extracted and you ran a command prompt as admin i don't see why it would fail. It seems as though it's having issues accessing the adb command, make sure its in the binarie's root folder.

You have Windows 8? Did you disable Windows driver security enforcement. Here is a tutorial I pass off to others to get it done.

Seems like I'm stuck.
Someone is offering a service for rooting for 20$ via team viewer I'm about to give up.
Can I just install 2nd bootloader directly or u must root first?

There is another way to root?


linear , I'll try. Is this root ok for me?

That root is fine, I think it's newer version of the one you are using, and I wouldn't bother with the offer, I do that kinda stuff free xD. Kinda are supposed to have a commercial licence to charge people for services over team viewer if I remember right and not most people don't want to fork over that kinda money unless they are a business. If worst comet's to worst just pm me and I don't mind using teamviewer to get it rooted.
