There's apps like z4root that root your phone with No computer. Also something like universal root

Question any luck?

did you have any luck with those apps? I wouldnt think those apps would work without the computer because you need that token id from your phone by using the command prompt to unlock your bootloader.

There most likely won't be any. You can just download the toolkit and it will do it all for you.
