    Getting ready to root and I've hit a snag... I was going to pull the trigger today and root using the 1 click method and flash to KAOSFROYO v30 and I cannot find a working download link?!?! Help. I was over on XDA and none of the multiupload.com links to open. I've tried IE and FF browsers and all I get is redirects. Thoughts?

    FWIW does v30 come with over/under clock? I also have grabbed SetCPU just in case.

    These site are sometimes tricky (they get you to click on "fake" / alternate download links).

    Okay, FWIW, I had no problems doing this (it was a direct download and I didn't have to wait or select the "Free" option or anything). I also had downloaded several other files via multiupload earlier this morning.

    Here's what I did to download KaosFroyo (I'm on Windows 7 using IE 8):

    1. From the XDA link for KaosFroyo V30: [ROM]KaosFroyo V30 [08/18] [FROYO] - xda-developers
    2. Click on the V30 multiupload link: Multiupload.com - upload your files to multiple file hosting sites!
    3. Click on the "Direct Download" button for the "MultiUpload" entry (first line)
    4. Click on the "Save" button from the File Download window to download "kaosfroyo-v30.zip"
    5. Specify the download location and voila', file downloaded

    Have you perhaps exceeded your download limit for the day?

    Hope this helps.

    edit: I found a FAQ link (http://wiki.github.com/punk-kaos/KaosFroyo/kaosfroyo-faq) that indicates KaosFroyo V30 is overclocked to 710MHz by default

    Thanks for the quick help. I think I had a redirect issue unrelated to the browsers (rested my wireless router and viola). Now I have to get the courage back up to actually do this, LOL
