    Ready to Root!

    Can someone please point me to the easiest root guide. I've had a look through the forum but cant seem to put my finger on it?

    Android Version 2.3.4

    Build number GRJ22

    Unlocked bootloader (but did it a while ago and am feeling like a noob again!):rofl3:

    Since your bootloader is unlocked, just install a custom recovery via fastboot. You can then use recovery to either root your current ROM, or install a custom ROM (pre-rooted).

    Guides are in the Oracle:

    What will I lose when rooting and how do I save what I don't want to lose. Is this in the custom recoveries?
    (told you I was a noob!)

    If you root your current ROM you won't lose anything - you just add a couple of files.
    If you plan on installing a new ROM, I recommend rooting your current ROM first, then you can use Titanium to backup your data and transfer it to your new ROM...

    As mentioned before I haven't done anything to my phone for a while.

    Download these one of the following custom recoveries and put it in the same directory as fastboot and SU and put it on the root of your SD card:
    Also the original laptop I used to unlock the bootloader died, do I need to go through the process again as I'm not sure I have the above files on my phone either?

    This may be a painful process at the start at least, sorry!

    You will need to install the drivers and the SDK (there is a file in the oracle "connecting to a computer" section that has those)

    What is the full name of the su file you have on your SD card?
