Simple Thread to show how to root 1.5.7 & 1.8.3 using GingerBreak
Requirements: SD Card(real sd card not internal)
WARNING: THIS WILL DELETE YOUR INTERAL SD-CARD, BACKUP FIRST!!!
First if you don't have adb you need to get it. Easiest way is by downloading SuperOneClick. DO NOT run superoneclick, you only want adb from it.
Next download GingerBreak.apk made by Chainfire, it can be found here
Next launch from command prompt move to where adb is c:/path/to/adb/ and then run the following command
adb install /path/to/apk/GingerBreak.apk
It will install it, next on your phone in your app menu browse to and click on GingerBreak. Click root. Your phone will reboot and you will have root .
I have personally tested on a stock 1.5.7 and it works!
I have not personally tested on 1.83, but it has been confirmed by many. Same procedure applies
If you want side loading use Gladenable.
So to follow up.
All credit goes to the GingerBreak team & Chainfire, all did was apply there work.
1. Get ADB
2. adb install GingerBreak.apk
3. Run GingerBreak
5. If needed run Gladenable to enable sideloading if needed.
Or you could do this, Thanks kennethpen .
