this is my bootloader window

i didnt use wire trick it just gone S-OFF it self ,
even if i try to do it , it shows you have already S-off and one thing i can do i close the window
, i instaled Clockwork 5.0.2 and 5.8 it works, then i try to install superuser 3.0.7 or 2.3.1 they usually have error
error in /sdcard/Superuser-3.0.7-d-signed.zip (status 0)

but sometimes it looks like ive installed it , but when i reboot and try to instal busybox it crash, root checker saying that i dont have root
instaling cyanoger 11 or 10.2 gone well, but it crashed at loading , when i reflashed kernel , it will load over and over - i wait 25 minutes

im back at the stock ruu and i dont know how i can get root access to install cyanogen

you don't need root in order to install a custom rom
every custom comes pre-rooted

just do a full wipe from recovery and then flash the new rom

but if you want to stay in stock rom flash this zip from recovery
http://download.chainfire.eu/382/Sup...erSU-v1.93.zip
it will give you root access

Just a heads up, you "root" a "ROM", not the other way around. For installing a ROM, you only need a custom recovery. Whether your current ROM is rooted or not is (indirectly) irrelevant in context of installing a new one.

What rzr86 posted is a method to root a ROM AFTER installing it. And like he pointed out, most custom ROMs come pre-rooted.

Happy to help.
Jam that THANKS button. It only takes one finger.
