I'm unlocked and newly updated to KK yesterday. Now I'm trying to get root. I have dhacker's file and SuperSu.zip ready to go. I just don't know how to flash CWM, though. Can y'all help me?

get flashify from the market, put cwm and su files on your sd card, use flashify to install cwm, boot into recovery and flash the su.zip, re-boot, grab a su app from the market, update the binaries, Profit.

That's the thing, I'm not rooted yet. I tried Flashify but it just tells me that I don't have root and then quits.

fastboot flash recovery cwm_recovery_image_file_here
unplug usb
then boot into cwm and from in there flash supersu which needs to be on the sdcard

good luck.

I guess my real question is about setting up/using fastboot. I mean, before typing in the two lines that dhacker put up in his CWM post.

Any idea if this will work for me?

Yes That should work....but my guess would be you already have fastboot someplace. If you ever used HouseofMoto or any of Matts utilities, not sure if RSD has fastboot.

FYI I went ahead and adb/fastbooted it myself. Everything went swimmingly. I guess I should've learned about all this before I decided to take the leap and unlock/root my phone in the first place.

Time to start over from scratch
Hello,

Mine is doing the same thing - in a boot loop. Did you find a way to fix it? If so could you post the steps?
