Is pretty simple.
get your device into recovery mode, it will not boot but screen stop at loading your books, then plug your device into your pc via usb, if will pop up screen ask you to install drivers. choose the drive folder(minimal-root folder used when root your device,check if it has gserial.inf in it)
after setup, open control panel -> system -> hardware -> device manager -> COM port, it will show you which serial port it allocate for your device( my one is COM3)
Then open putty,then you will see(raw,telnet,ssh,serial etc), click serial, and then type your COM port into serial line,click open. if it connected, you can press enter and should get a notice asking your username(root), then, you can do whatever you want.

I will write a detailed instruction later. But you still could try it first.
