    So far the rooting... Seriously I've tried all methods I can find on here, phone communicates fine on ADB while NOT trying to root... I get nothin :( I hope The Unrevoked method comes out soon!

    The first thing the unrevoked team is releasing will help those who are all ready rooted. I'm not sure how long it will be till an easy root method is released. Just wait a little bit for your anger to cool off, then try again. I would suggest PDA net drivers, format your sd card, and the sd card trick before the recovery screen, good luck.

    I've done the format the SD card, I dont suppose anyone has a link to the PDA net drivers? I'm assuming I swap those for the ADB driver...

    Also the SD card trick I'm assuming is just timing the card insertion? I've gotten what I think is pretty decent at that.. no joy :(

    Just google PDA net, and download it. The drivers are in the client its self. Do you have HTC drivers installed?

    Uninstall HTC sync, and uninstall the HTC drivers, and try using the PDA net drivers only.

    I might just do that, I guess we'll have to see how desperate I get ;) The card that I'm using is an 8gb sandisk that came with my old BB storm.. I've read they arent the best for this.

    My 4gb sandisk took me 5 days before I was able to successfully root. I was on the verge of buying the 2gb PNY card because a lot of people were having success with it. If it were me, I would wait another day and try using your sandisk again, if still no luck, try the 2gb pny card. When I was doing the sd card trick, I actually pushed it in right before the recovery screen popped up, I initially thought it was to late, but it worked. Keep trying, and best of luck.

    Just pull your teeth out, far easier. This will drive you crazy, but is possible. What are you getting hung up on? I did it ALL, trust me.

    I figured that was the hard part, I just wish we could all figure out some commonality between what works and what doesnt. If you watch the video its like he looks at the phone funny and boom root LOL

    This might seem a little crazy, but try pushing your sd card in slower when doing the trick.

    I will always choose root! It was ridiculously painful, but by the time I got it to work the feeling was pure ecstasy. Had an issue with the marketplace, but a factory reset fixed that and now I have full function and root!!! That feels better than any missing teeth!
