    Tried to root using Gingersnap....progress bar stops a little more than half way through, and doesn't ever complete. Have let it sit for 2 + hours. Still never finishes. Any help would be great.
    Need more info. What version are you on? If ZVH, you need Sons of Korhal. If ZVJ, there isn't an exploit available (yet), and you'll need to read the stickies.

    I had some trouble getting this to (1) download, and (2) install properly. Both problems were caused by anti-virus software seeing Gingersnap as an "exploit"-- which it is. That's the whole point!

    1) Windows Explorer 9 would not let me download Gingersnap because it sees it as a virus. From Internet Explorer 9, you have to go to "Setting/Safety/Turn off Smart Screen Filter. Then download Gingersnap.

    2) Gingersnap seemed to run fine, but then when I installed Titanium Backup, it said that the phone wasn't rooted. (It wasn't.) Everntually I figured out that I had to turn off my antivirus software (Microsoft Security Essentials) to get Gingersnap to work properly.

    I hope this helps someone else.

    Please remove your email address ASAP.

    You can try it, but if it doesn't work you can try Sons of Korhal.

    Doubtful, the ginger break exploit has been closed on all recent updates and would assume that would hold true for the elite as well

    This method will NOT work on the newer baseband versions. You should use this method. http://forums.androidcentral.com/sho....php?p=1799338

    Gingersnap is technically a virus in that it is designed to exploit code so many antivirus flag it. Try disabling your antivirus prior to downloading it.
