Hi guys,

What is the difference between rooting and flashing? What do i need to root or flash a smartphone?

Hi Kelvis,

Go to this site and download the free software. I have tried this myself but every time I want to activate debug on my phone, win7 does not recognize the driver from my smartphone anymore. Perhaps you are more lucky with rooting your smartphone. Best of luck...
