I'm afraid I don't know anyone with that model so I can only comment on my
experiences with doing the same thing on other devices (HTC Desire, HTC
Desire Z). Nevertheless the best resources I found when I was rooting my
phone(s) were google and  http://forum.xda-developers.com

Let us know how you get on =)
