    Hello all as you can probably tell by my thread title I am very new to rooting and I think I am very close.

    At this point I have downloaded the required motorola driver, sbf file, and have rsd 4.6 on my computer. The issue is rsd does not display my phone. On an earlier version of rsd it did display my phone but I was getting an error so I downloaded 4.6 but now it does not.

    Any help would be appreciated (I am running windows vista 64 bit)

    Thanks.

    you have to run rsd as administrator. Navigate to C:\Program Files\Motorola\RSD Lite and right click on sdl.exe and run as administrator

    If you go to Settings->Accounts, do you have an account already set up for Google? Is syncing enabled?
