Using a Straight Talk LG L38C. And yes, I am a total noob. Used to have a Rooted Droid X on verizon, but my friend rooted it for me.
OK, so I tried this last night. Did not work. On the phone, had the unknown source thing checked along with the stay awake while charging option. I cannot remember if the SD car was unmounted or not. USB storage on. Went through the process and got the "credits", the thank you's to everyone who helped make this, pressed any key to continue, and the command prompt went away. Super user was on my phone, and it opened, but there was nothing in it. restarted my phone, still nothing in super user and could not tell if was rooted or not, and could not remove any bloat ware. Tried this twice with the same result. I saw the batch file in the OP, unzipped and replaced the file with the new one. That bricked my phone I think. It would come to the blue TracPhone load screen for about 10 seconds, go to a blank light grey screen for about 10 seconds and keep going back and forth. I tried the power button/volume down restart a few times, same thing. Pulled the battery and let it sit for about 10 minutes, same thing, except after the first showing of the blue screen it went to a half second flash of my old background, and then back to the blue screen/grey screen cycle.
I took the phone back to wallie world this morning and got a new one. So my question is, what did I do wrong? Did I not have the drivers installed correctly. I clicked on the link and it DLed it. I really wanna root this phone, to free up memory, but dont want to brick it again.
