      @suresh – The effen-manual.html is in AceHackKit that you download in Step2. The html has complete rooting instructions. For Step15, you need to move the files on your mobile.

    Hey,
    Thanks Atul..I realized it and after moving the files it started working already.
    I successfully rooted it..Thanks a lot –You have done a great job….on sharing the procedure..
    But,two more concerns:
    1) I’m unable to connect to Internet or register my Mobile account..

    2)Is it possible to upgrade this to Android 2.3 or 2.4?..anyway,I heard Honycomb(3.0)is only for tablets–right?Mine is at 2.2 now.
