The step by step process worked for me. The only thing that I had to change was the Windows enabler, I had to go down in the task bar after activating it, right click on it and change it to ON. Then, once I ran the KDZ_FW_UPD_E, I had to manually go in and set it to CDMA- Smart Phone(WM) Phone Mode (DIAG). It was not set on CDMA- Smart Phone (WM) by default like the TUT says it should be.
I waited 2 seconds to turn my phone on and it worked like a charm.
Is there a reason you're not rooted yet??
Do the right thing and hit THANKS!
