Shut down the phone and boot into recovery mode.Hold to power button+ volume key up+home key (simultaneous) to boot into recovery mode. The home key is the large rectangular key just below the screen. While in recovery mode, the touchscreen isn’t enabled so you will have to use the up and down volume rocker keys to navigate through the recovery mode menu.
Once in the recovery mode, choose the ‘update.zip’. Go back to the main menu and choose reboot now. If you did everything right, your phone will now be rooted.
