    So im trying to root my phone and ive made a couple of threads already but while im rooting it and installing "PC36IMG" after it downloads into my phone it sais that the file is outdated or old? is htere a newer file that i dont know about?

    im using the idiot proof guide and it sais it failed?
    it sais "Main Version is older!" and sais it has no images?

    but when i go to software information it sais kernel version 2.6 29 etc

    oh boy. you have a long night ahead of you. I take it you are trying the simpleroot method. For some people, it works flawlessly and takes less than 20 minutes. It took a lot of people (like me) hours. My advice is simply to keep reading through the simpleroot thread on XDA and continue to try.

    I encountered the same problem that you did. Instead of reading through the 1000+ posts in that thread I simply used unrevoked3. That took 10 minutes. I then went to the gym and to starbucks. While in starbucks I downloaded ROM manager and then downloaded the "fresh rom" (downloading a rom is a menu item in rom manager). Downloading and installing took 20 minutes and most of that was due to a fairly long download time for the rom.

    I'm now fully rooted and happy in 30 minutes and 10 clicks.

    You will be able to install it but you won't be able to use the "download ROM" option as it's not one that's currently listed. But you can save the rom to your sd card.

    I bet that unrevoked3 will work for you. It's the simplest way out there to root your phone. Literally plug in your phone, chose "disc mode", install the drivers (they are included in the unrevoked package), then push the button. It's that simple.
