If you have updated your Pantech Crossover with latest update of gingerbread 2.3.6 and regretting it, don't feel bad because you can now root it with few simple steps which are mentioned hereunder...

NOTE: this procedure is very much safe, but if you mess something up just because of your less technical knowledge/experience then don't blame because I don't take any responsibility of your mistakes.

- connect your CrossOver with your computer and make sure that latest drivers are installed.
- download and extract attached file and open command prompt placed in it.
- type "adb reboot bootloader" and wait for phone to boot into bootloader mode (your phone will remain on 10% loading bar which is actually bootloader mode, so don't panic) [people with bootloader drivers issue should download modified drivers from the link below]
- type "fastboot boot recovery.img" and your phone will boot into CWM recovery.
- copy update.zip to your memory card and select "install update.zip from memory card" from the recovery menu.
- restart your phone and you are rooted.

Awesome! Been hoping someone would crack this for a while.

Do you have a source for the .exe files by any chance? I'm on a linux box now, I'll be able to try it on Windows by tomorrow I think.

edit: nvm, had fastboot all along. thanks!

For those rooting, don't forget to enable Superuser through an app like Terminal Emulator.

If you open Terminal Emulator and the command prompt starts with a $, you are still rooted. Type "su" (without the quotes). If the next line in the command prompt starts with a #, congrats!
