SW Updater Driver Problem - no M900 driver
Been working through some tutorials on how to root my Moment for a few days now and I finally decided to pull the trigger last night. I am following the How to Root the Samsung Moment – Volume 3 | Market 4 Android tutorial and here is my current phone data:
Model Number: SPH-M900
Firmware Version 2.1-update1
Baseband Version: S:M900.8.0S.DJ07
Kernel Version: 2.6.29
Build Number: ECLAIR.DJ07
Hardware Version: M900.8.0
Before I started I verified I can plug my moment into my computer, the computer recognizes the device, says all drivers are installed and up to date, and I can mount the SD card.
I am able to restart my phone into the "downloader" mode per the instructions in the SW Updater, but when I connect my phone to my computer while the phone is in the "downloader" mode I run into some issues.
I am running x64 windows 7 and I get the standard "windows has detected a device" pop up when I pull the phone into the computer as instructed by the updater. However this time it throws a "cannot find driver" error. When I look at my device manager I no loner see a Samsung Android device, but instead just an unknown device labeled M900.
Can anyone think of what I'm doing wrong?
