I have 2 brand new Bursts on my work bench. I've been doing some tinkering with them. Here are a few my bare bone notes so far: Pantech Burst Model P9070 All of the articles I read said the Burst would ship with 2.3.4. Both of mine have 2.3.5. Last minute update? According to AT&T the Latest Firmware is JUUS12052011 ----- To get into Recovery Mode: Pull & reinsert the Battery, then hold Power & Volume Down buttons until a screen with the Triangle containing a Yellow ! appears. Once this pops up, press the Menu button to make the Android Recovery <3e> menus appear. At this point, the volume rockers become the up & down Keys. The Home button is Enter ----- When you Pull & reinsert the Battery, then press & hold both Volume buttons then press Power - "S/W Upgrading" will appear on the screen ----- So far ZergRush, OneClick, nor z4Root work to achieve Root. You can get the Pantech PC Suite which contains the ADB drivers from Pantech's site.

It seems to depend on how heavy the load is on the OS.
