    Ok, I have the new recovery img, the PB00IMG zip, the ic3 rom, my adb drivers installed, I get a $ sign when I type in adb shell (but didn't say anything about the device that was connected?), but the next step is to start moving crap to my phone... This is the problem... Where is my device in Windows?

    Windows 7 x64

    I can ls the contents of the drive from the adb shell, I just can't see it on the my computer list?

    edit: it adds a 5th usb device drive, but I cannot open it

    Disregard, kinda... I still want to know why you can't access the SD card from windows, but I went ahead and ftp'ed the necessary files to my phone, went through the rest of the rooting process pretty much flawlessly, and installed the IC3 rom (which has the most awesome boot screen in the world :p), so we are all good to go now.

    For anyone who cares, [Recovery] [17-Mar-2010] RA-eris-v1.6.2 - xda-developers the standard link for the recovery file is corrupt (46k). Only the mirror downloads the full file (3.8M).

    dumb question, but did you do this:

    alt (Settings -> Connect to PC -> Default connection type)

    [​IMG]

    (Back in the bad old days of 1.5 and Windows Xp, you would observe a nearly identical behavior - a USB disk drive would "appear" in the File Explorer, but the contents would appear to be blank - until you explicitly "mounted" the SD card to the PC from the phone menus. You might have already done this; apologies in advance if you have)

    That would be the problem, thanks... See I've been using my FTP server for file transfer all this time... Never even bothered to hook it up to my PC until now. Root is running well. Now how do I OC? :D

    Excellent!

    Thanks, that's a perfect example of how MD5 checksums prevent disaster. Don't leave home without them!

    Edit: I just checked the DL' from the rapidshare link

    -rw-r--r-- 1 user user 3926016 2010-06-03 21:50 recovery-RA-eris-v1.6.2.img
    e3932991f097993602af3c7a4b61a4f8 recovery-RA-eris-v1.6.2.img

    seems OK to me. Maybe just a one-time hiccup?
