  1. Unfortunatelly it doesn't work. Or in other words it works but with no effect.
    I tried it several times. Everything seams to go OK. Package seams to load to phone. The SU apps are installed but the phone is not rooted. Everywhere i searched trough forums and tutorials there are similar posts but no answers what to do next.
    In fact I found no post telling that anyone succeded with this…
