The root method that mentions 1.85 in the thread title is the only one that works for 1.85.
Then achieve SuperCID by either the first method linked ("manual") or 2nd link (1-click). Your choice. 1-click is easier, but some people like to have more control and do it manually.
Unlock the bootloader, then install TWRP using the 1-click or goomanager app on the Play market. CWM is not recommended, as it doesn't officially support our device, and is known to cause some major issues for some people.
