Hey everyone, im new to this site and to rooting and im not sure where to start... I would like to root my ZL but theres so much info on these forums I have no clue if Im looking at the correct stuff or not.. I would appreciate anyone willing to give me some guidance and this. My overall objective is to basically clear out the bloatware, increase the sound volume through my headphone jack, speed up my handset and maybe a new skin and whatever other cool things i discover by having a rooted phone. here are my specs-

Model:c6506
android versoin:4.4.2
build number:10.5.A.0.230

I apologize if this thread is not in the correct area. and thanks in advance for any help

-go to dialer and press *#*#7378423#*#*, go to service info and then to configuration. see the last line.
-normal backup app found in your phone.
-yes androxyde's flashtool. http://www.flashtool.net/
