    Thumbs down What the hell am I doing wrong?

    I can't figure out why my phone won't root. I have a Samsung SGH-I727 Skyrocket running 2.3.6, Gingerbread.ucla3. I have followed all of the steps provided here: http://forums.androidcentral.com/sky...hat-i-did.html

    and this is what I get:



    What am I missing here? I've followed all the steps repeatedly, tried different USB ports, etc.


    I'm running Windows 7, fwiw.

    Someone can correct me if I'm wrong, but I think that method doesn't work if you're on 2.3.6. Can anyone confirm?

    Maybe try flashing Superuser through CWM?

    Are you running the program as administrator? Right click the file and try running as administrator

    If you go to Android & Windows Phone: Tablets, Apps, & ROMs @ xda-developers and look for skyrocket they have how to root running 2.3.6. They have step by step instructions. I'm not sure how the steps run since I'm on the Atrix 2.

    This explains it forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1340526
    Actually rooting on 2.3.6 (as well as on ICS) is very easy. Use Odin to flash CWM and from CWM install superuser.zip follow the instructions in the link. (Can't post clickable link from my phone for some reason sorry)
