Hi to all.

IMEI 1 - 355236030920772

the home button doesn't work. I want to install the "SoftKey Enabler" but it need a root access.

I tried this Guide : http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=645253 , but stuck in step 3. when i open Universal Androot v1.6.1 got the message "failed ! No~~~Fu goo". i tried all the options didn't work.

You'll need a rooting toolkit. There are many around the net. Here's one that may be compatible with your device:
1. http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2453709
Note that this one is from a Chinese programmer, so it installs a chinese superuser on your phone, but you can download the english one from the play store.
