    Not working. After few hours of “succesful” (exactly like in tutorial) rooting the only thing I have is 7 custom flashes on the counter.

    Hi there, I followed the steps all went well swiftly but when I tried to install Super SU i got an error “SU binary not found” then I installed super user and afterwords the LBE Privacy Guard. Upon this the superuser application did not seek permission and LBE PG fails stating that the phone is not rooted.
