I have the at&t version of the dell streak,sadly LOL but anyways,I CANNOT simply just root my phone. one, it never allows my usb fast boot to detect. thats one problem. two, my build number is 6601 and I always see these 2 numbers above (4399&3883) on every site. is there a site where they have a superboot for 6601 build number?

Thanks,
mike
