Here is the method I discovered for root access that doesn't require a dock.


Please donate with the "Donate to me" button on the top left of this post, if you are willing. I don't promise anything new in the future. It would just be a thank you for this hack.

Old thread, if you have problems with this


Instructions:
Use your favorite method to get photon-torpedo.tar into /data/tmp
Install Superuser from the Market
Install Android Terminal Emulator from the Market
Run Android Terminal Emulator
Run cd /data/tmp
Run /bin/tar xf /data/tmp/photon-torpedo.tar
Run /data/tmp/photon-torpedo.sh
Run /data/tmp/install-su.sh

Download:
Photon Torpedo


Thank you dgood!
Thank you Yay!
