    Hi,

    I'm trying to install a Samba program but it says I need to root or SU my phone.

    I downloaded Superuser version 3.0 from the market and it doesn't seem to work?

    Also. I noticed a setting on the phone under 'location and security' called 'select device administrators'.
    It says you can add administrators but there doesn't seem to be a way to add an administrator?

    Since I'm an Android newbie (coming from a webos), I don't want to make any disastrous mistakes.

    Thanks for the help!

    Rob

    PS Tried to read some of the posts regarding rooting. Wow, this is way more complicated than WebOS. All I need to do is have SU access according to the Samba app. Do you really have to root your device to gain SU access.

    With WebOS all I had to do was turn on developer mode. From what I'm reading I need to perform some very complicated instructions. I need to be sure I won't mess up the phone. So I need very clear step by step instructions. Sorry, I'm sure once I do it, it will seem very easy. It's the first time that is scary!
