    What android version are you on and are you rooted? Going into stock recovery won't allow you to flash a new rom

    I am on 2.3.4 How do I know if I'm rooted? I mean there are things asking for super access, does that confirm I am rooted?

    If things are asking for super user access then you are likely rooted. There is a simple way to check too. Download Android Terminal Emulator from google play (its free.) Open it and you should see a $ in the prompt. Type 'su' without the quotes and press enter. It should then ask for super user access and the $ should turn to a #. If it does, you are rooted.
