    Have you tried changing the storage on the phone? From internet to mass or charge to mass to see if that helps?

    Whenever you plug the phone it and it starts it does take a minute to get started. After 5 minutes something is wrong.

    also in windows you need to turn off the automatic driver download. Windows will attempt to installed incorrect drivers. If the above doesn't work then try turning off that feature then delete all the drivers in hardware manager and in add/remove programs

    After you install the drivers, if you can go to mass storage on your phone and it show up on your pc as an internal and external drive then everything should be fine. Without the hardware install you wouldnt be able to access your phone from your pc.

    What's your OS on your PC?

    The only phone I have had to root for C version was done right after set up was completed for ADB. But having two instances show in the previous post is buggin me.
    Mind you I am on Win 7 64...ADB is installed on my C(hard disk) not within Windows(Thanks to nuttmeg;))
    I show no instance of it even running in task manager since of coarse it is not running through Windows

    Not sure if this is why you are having issues but could be.

    Try this first before reinstalling ADB(hopefully a easy solution):D

    First though this what I was referring to last AM...when I downgraded and factory reset my phone a few days ago I had the drivers installed as you do...but ran into the somewhat the same issue you are having, phone was not truly recognized.:mad:
    When you first plug the phone in this appears:

    Mind you while phone is in "Mass Storage" mode before one would change to "Internet Connection" to root.
    Run the RunAutoRun.exe when it pops up and try to root again.
    FINGERS CROSSED LOL:)

    can't tell for sure if everything worked out or not.

    In case it didn't:

    temporarily uninstall all security apps / modules, to wit anything that scans your installing apps....usually you'll get a message 'xx app is safe'....

    could be a setting in anything from firewall to tweaker....

    firewall, android booster, droid guard, sheep guard, etc.
