    Yeah. Unchecked then unplugged all different combinations. Just kept saying waiting for device. I know im an idiot but usually with trial and error I see progress.

    Which mode are you connected in? I found that it worked best if you were in Windows Media Mode or whatever that one is called.

    When you plug it in, does it say that USB Debugging is enabled? It should say "connected via USB" and then "usb debugging enabled" and there should be a little bug icon in the status bar.

    Once that happens, does your PC successfully install the drivers for the phone?

    The super one click method took me a few times, but when i followed the instructions exactly , on the 3rd time it worked

    You NEED to put your phone on USB Debugging mode and make sure you DO NOT mount your SD card

    If you're having issues with "wait for device" or if RATC is looping, try this
    Unplug your USB Cable
    Go to Settings > Applications > Development
    Uncheck USB Debugging
    Plug in your USB Cable
    Unplug your USB Cable
    Check USB Debugging
    Plug in your USB Cable



    your device should be on the "charge" setting

    I had to reboot my phone twice during the process when it hung. Then it finished successfully.
