You do know the charger cord unplugs from the charger head and is a USB cable, right?

yes i know that.

ok let me add a note then.
the usb cord will not , i say again will not, connect the phone to the computer.

i get a usb not recognized.

i have tried the drivers form samsung website and from easy tether web site.
i am looking for others to try now but the computer will not take the driver for the phone.

i have tried all the usb ports on the computer, restarted both devices, tried with usb debug on and off, tried with both sides of pda net and the computer will not recognize the phone so i can not connect it to anything. all it gets is power.

so the usb is for all intensive purposes useless.

so i want to find a way, verified to work with 2.2.2, to root the phone from sd. unless someone knows of working driver. i am using windows xp sp2 and i am hoping not to need to go to sp3.

AFAIK, there's no way to replace recovery via SD. Once you accomplish that, you don't necessarily need a cable but you will for that first step. Anyone you could borrow from for a few minutes?

ok i found the cable. its a samsung usb cable.

when i connect it to the computer all i get aside from the phone charging is the computer says there is a usb device found, then that it is unrecognizable.

i have tried the samsung drivers, from the samsung website, i have tried the drivers with easytether...i am looking for a reason or way to fix this...

i have tried all the ports on this computer, and the results is the same. both the computer and the phone have been restarted.

the only information i can get on the computer about the device is
"device instance id

USB\VID_0000&PID_0000\5&1CBDCC8A&0&3"

i have done a factory reset.. although i did not see anything change that would help with this problem.

PDAnet worked for me. It installs a samsung driver that allows USB communication. Also, try another port if you havent already done so:

PdaNet -- USB Tether/Bluetooth DUN for Android
