4: This part is tricky; while the drive is open, copy ths files to the folder on the desktop. You may need to repeat this step a few time..
5. Once you have successfully copied the files, run the bootstrap program; these are the files that you need to be able to consistently connect to the phone.
Thanks for the help bro! Newbie here w/ a stupid question:
I did all that files transfer stuff and I have no idea how to install all those files? It would be cool if I could just drag and drop the whole file into some sort of installsheild and it would figure it out, lol. My phone never had the bootstrap.exe file pop up when I first connected it, arrrgg.
I am trying to tether my Breakout via direct USB connection to my XP desktop here. (don't ask..it's a long story) but I am stuck in temp housing here for the next 2 months while they finish building my house here in socal. The Marriott suite has no hardwired cat 5E ports on the wall, only their crappy wireless. I tryed Verizon's new hotspot wireless and it sucks! Keeps dropping! I trade FX for a living, so I gotta get this fixed now!
