I need to root my phone in order to tether it to an iPad. I have tried everything i found, but no success: - Exploid - SuperOneClick - z4modd (z4root) - Universal Androot

well, i'm a newbie when it comes to Android, but i know my way around computers, and i am starting to feel a little stupid.

Can someone shed a light on this for me?
