  1. Just FYI.. rageagainstthecage exploit was for Froyo. It doesn’t work with gingerbread. Also with latest v8 Firmware update even zergrush doesn’t work. So NO current root method for newest v8 firmware. If you really care check xda-developers.. they are working on it.

  2. We have updated the procedure for the latest updated firmware. Thanks again for pointing out this.
