Attempting to get root access for installation using TowelRoot now.
NOTE: this only works on certain ROM/Kernel versions!
If it fails, please check the development thread (Post #2) on XDA for more details.
XZDualRecovery does NOT install any superuser app!!
You can use one of the recoveries to root your device.
