    Ok, it didn't work for me at first either, but if you pull your battery first, then re-insert it, then hold vol up + vol down and turn it on, it should work.

    hmmmm, might be a stupid question, but i think i'll ask anyway............
    Are you sure you are on 2.3 build, or did you do the ICS update posted on another thread first? cuz this root method is only for Gingerbread.

    and also to get pink screen it is VOLUME UP + VOLUME DOWN + POWER

    once you get into recovery mode (those screens that are popping up, lol)

    find install> choose zip from sdcard> fastrootv3.zip
    it will take you to another screen with a bunch of no"s and 1 yes, highlight yes enter
    then it should install

    My instructions might be off, its been a long time since i did this to the merc, but should be close, lol

To say I finally got up the nerve to try this last night.It only took me 2 tries before achieving root on my Mercury. It was my first phone rooting and I have been reading up on it for some time now.Anyways I just wanted to say thank you for all your hard work and now I'm gonna find out what all I can do and change on my phone hehe.

    Red face Question...

    I moved my system backup to my PC before I used CWM's backup before rooting with the steps above so to my understanding that should have done the trick for backing up my stock stuff . Now for switching up ROMs I'm still not sure to what that does all around. Will that change my system like going from Windows 98 to say Windows Vista.lol

    Just got a replacement merc from cricket and I can't get the custom recovery/root method to work. Have done this many times before with old phone, but now the pwr+up+dwn just gives me pink recovery screen. Am using custom recovery. Is it possible that cricket is preventing rooting on new phones? Other options for root?

    To get to the Nandroid screen its just power +volume up.If you push both up and down thats the download mode(pink screen).
