First, reboot into your bootloader/fastboot mode. (Volume + Power Up, or adb reboot bootloader)

Then, install this recovery:

Then boot into Clockwork recovery and install the Superuser zip file (adb reboot recovery, or from fastboot choose recovery):

Can't wait for my friend to come back from US with a couple of these flaming babies... guess we'll be already having a CM build for them by that time :)
