So far ive tried superoneclick... froze on step 7

tried manually installing superuser... couldnt verify.

tried installing a root zip... couldnt verify.

the only thing that claims to have worked is clockworkmod... except that it will NOT allow me access to any of the actual rooted functions.

i was able to download superuser (which you cannot download from google play unless rooted- that worked.)

trying to keep the OS on it now while being able to delete bloatware, for a friend.

is it purely impossible to root a stock rom? why can i install programs that requre root but i cannot use them for their intended purpose (rom manager says it cant find superuser in either of 2 locations).

what the heck am i missing?? ive been googling and trying methods for hours to no avail. cant boot into cwm recovery at all, by rom manager or from powered off (it goes into stock recovery.).

what else can i do?

Did you watch the video in the CWM thread?

Tell me your steps EXACTLY and we'll figure it out.

Finally got it to work. i guess the magic step is not letting odin auto reboot. I was afraid not to let it because its not even mine. But, i followed the video in that thread exactly and that let my root zip install correctly.

phew!
