How to Root the Dell Venue

We still have yet to hear of this thing outside of India and South Korea, but the Dell Venue has been rooted. We’re sure a good chunk of our reader base doesn’t have this phone, but for the sake of anticipation, we’ll inform you guys anyway. A quick download of the drivers needed and a Superoneclick root application is all you’ll need to get started. XDA has the instructions you need here. [Thanks, BonBonDude!]

  1. Download the driver file from Dell. (A Windows-based PC is required.)
  2. Connect your phone to your PC.
  3. Install R291096.exe.
  4. Download SuperOneClickv1.5.1-ShortFuse
  5. Open SuperOneClick and tap the ROOT button.
  6. You should be all good to go!
