    I’ve followed the steps exactly probably 15 times now and it ends up asking for the guid and Id are showing 0 — or something of that nature and I try and open Titanium backup which requires root and it says it isn’t rooted yet.  Any ideas?  I’ve deleted the drivers and updated them a couple of times as well as just using the drivers Win 7 gives me.  It’s still not rooted.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks.

      scary.  I used the new tool and when it booted up– it began to crash.  It said, unexpected crash and then it would reboot and it kept cycling through without ever stabalizing.  I’m glad you installed the unexploited portion.  That saved it from what appeared to be bricking.  So, still unrooted.  Not sure what I’m doing different.  Should the setting MTP be clicked or PTP under settings–>storage?  I’ve used MTP.  I have USB debbugging clicked as well.  Not sure what I should do next.
