Dude try this thread looks like its compatible with your phone
I read that, but like my original post stated, I don't understand the language of voodoo vs. Non-voodoo, Odin, kernal this or that, nor do I want to have to buy apps that may or may not do me any good if it doesn't work.
I'm not lazy, just honestly with 4 kids, two homes, 4 dogs, a full time job, kids in high school activities etc. I do not have the time to learn all the ins and outs of doing this safely without hurting or bricking my phone.
I don't have a basic understanding of the Android operating system. When I poke around, it seems like every thing is duplicated twice for some reason, and the file structure is cryptic to me.
I guess, unless I can find someone to do this, I'm SOL. I'll keep searching to see WHY this meathod doesn't work, as it clearly states in the first post my phone is supported. Whats different about my phone than the hundreds that have been already rooted? THAT is the question!
I think that this thread's solution might only work for Gingerbread (& previous) Android versions. Given that the bulk of recent phones are for Ice Cream Sandwich (aka ICS) & Jelly Bean (aka JB) Android, yours may well be one of these. If you go to Settings & look in About's details, that will tell you the version of Android installed on your phone (i.e. 2.2=Froyo,2.3=Gingerbread, 3=Honeycomb, 4.0=ICS, 4.1 (I think)=JB).
Even though I have a good understanding of Linux (on which Android is based) & I use Ubuntu (based on Linux) on my desktop & laptop PCs, I don't fully get Android. For example, Android does not use the standard Unix (Linux being a flavour of Unix) password system. The impression that I get is that Google deliberately keep secret the workings of Android for marketing & other reasons.
