hey guys im new to the forums, but i have been researching extensively on the web about rooting. my first main concern is about my phone being formatting. i have researched the web, and its been telling me 2 things, that i WILL wipe the device and i would have to have it reactivated by verizon, and another place that says it will NOT wipe my device and only difference is that after rooting the phone is that it is just...rooted and leaves my data untouched. which is it? i only want to root and not flash new roms ( YET!) also last night, i gave in and tried rooting. however i encountered 2 problems. i have used the guides that was included in the forum. 1 problem is using the rsd light, when i flash the sbf, it goes to 100% in like 2 seconds, then it fails to reboot the phone. i have researched on that and it was saying it actually didnt flash the spf file. any ideas on this fix? another problem is that when i use the update.zip ( i know that it has to b named just update) it gives me the e-verification fail in recovery mode. any help is greatly appreciated, and as i said, i have searched and have not found a def. answer, except to keep trying. i will keep trying but i hope someone here can help me get this all done! thank you in advance!!!
