You have the dev phone, that means you have the engineering bootloader.

Follow this thread: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=455860

You can use the FASTBOOT option to flash your phone with a rooted version.

it would be better if you called, i believe its easier. just tell them after you updated the phone it is often freezing, losing connection and restarting, (tell them its fully charged also) tell them you did a factory reset and it did not help
and that with no apps installed your phone is running a lot slower than "your friends" phone who has 40 apps installed. they should send you out a replacement

I'm in the very same situation. Any news on this?

When I try to root my phone I get a "su: permission denied". The answer probably is very obvious but I cannot find it.

That happened to me the first time I tried to flash-up to JF RC30 v1.2. Something didn't take, rebooting hung up several times; I'm actually surprised I didn't brick the phone, back in the days before the engineering bootloader was available

I simply re-downloaded JF's mod, re-loaded it on my test card, and started the recovery console update loader again. Then I had su access.
