    I have a question about the root directions I'm going to use. I'm going tom root and also install clockwork mod. I understand all the directions until i get to the part that says "Extract One click root v2.4.0 w/Clockwork and run the file "run.bat". The Windows command prompt will come up and the process will start. " I want to make sure I know what to do before I start this process and I don't know exactly how to do this. My guess is open up run on my computernand enter run.bat. Is that right or what? I know it might be a dumb question but I dont want to mess this up.

    Double click on run.bat and it'll do all the work. :)

    I am trying to do the one click root process and it keeps telling me my phone is attached but offline. I have the drivers installed for my Epic and everything works fine till I get in the run.bat file and it tells me my phone is offline or not connected.

    I am a noob and I REALLY want to root my phone. I really like the idea of installing custom ROMs on my phone and removing sprint bloatware. After installing the update.zip file that had the froyo leak here at phandroid, that sparked an intense desire to do more with my phone. Why wait for updates that take months? I just had a blast updating my phone manually..although is was extremely simple to do...

    In a few days I will attempt to root my phone using the link provided in this thread. Is there any advice on what not to do? Is there anything in the rooting software that I should check/uncheck that isn't covered?

    Are there any videos of people rooting their epics with this method? I can't wait to try!

    Best advice I can offer is to read, read, read, read, read, ask questions, read, read, read, read, ask more questions.... and when you are ready to try it, reread and ask more questions.

    There is a LOT you can mess up by having root (i.e. admin) access and risk bricking your phone (rare but it happens).

    Know the risk, feel comfortable with the process and ask lots of questions about what you read.

    Epic 4G Android Development - xda-developers is a great site that is full of information but they don't take to nicely to new users usually :(
