    Depends on software your phone is running now.

    -For 2.3.4 there is no current method of rooting yet..

    -For 2.3.3 here's a link to guide you: [how-to] root: Gingerbread 2.3.3 - Android Forums

    -As for ROMs, it depends on what type of software you want. Are you wanting AOSP, Sense 3.0 or what did you have in mind?

    You are wrong about 2.3.4. You simply follow attn1's guide to downgrade: [Tool] Downgrade VivoW with hboot 0.98 - xda-developers

    Well that's different. That would be downgrading software, not rooting. Then you root once that's all done. So no, not really. :P

    Well, the downgrade is a way to get around .98 bootloader. I do believe ZergRush is a temproot in some form. Why you would want to root 2.3.4 by itself, i'm not sure. I would much rather have s-off and flash a custom rom for 2.3.4 or higher.

    Downgrade to 2.3.3 run Revolutionary on 2.3.3 to obtain S-Off and have fun!
