I don't know if I am the only one who realized there's su binary already in the build. Anyway, this is a shorter route to have root working on your phone. This only works with the HKTW 2.3.4 build! And this instruction have only be tested by me. So, do take precautionary measures.

DOWNLOAD: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/6418171/SuperUser.zip

INSTRUCTIONS:
1. Extract the zip to your internal storage (i.e. /sdcard)

2. Get into the phone shell i.e.
Quote:

adb shell

3. Then, type and press enter:
Quote:

su

4. Lastly, copy and paste these whole chunk to your phone shell and press enter:
Quote:

mount -o remount,rw /dev/block/mmcblk0p12 /system && cp /sdcard/SuperUser/su /system/bin/su && chmod 6755 /system/bin/su && cp /sdcard/SuperUser/SuperUser.apk /system/app/SuperUser.apk && mv /system/xbin/su /system/xbin/dosu

If there's no error with the output, you should have root access on your phone now. Tada! Do report of this works for you!

Trying it out now. Will report back.

And this has Blur on it. It's not a custom ROM.
