    Turn off your phone and hold volume down + power to load into HBOOT, the version number at the top will tell you what you have. I don't remember what is what, so you'll have to search for that.

    ADB is part of the android SDK. It allows you to access the phone's terminal from your PC through usb. See here: [TUTORIAL/HOW TO] Basics of ADB - xda-developers

    Its not difficult to learn if you have much experience with command line utilities, linux or unix-based one specifically help a lot.

    If you aren't willing to wait or learn, stick with your stock ROM, crapware, and feature lock outs.... or go back to the TP2.

    Okay thanks.

    Its not that I am not willing to learn, its just that every time I try I am having to figure something else out. I have no experience with any type of command line utilities.

    The only thing that works right now for the new OTA (which you apparently have if you have the main image older failure) is here:

    ---==={ROOT GUIDE}===--- | 1.47.651.1 ROOT method | - xda-developers

    If you wait anywhere between a few hours to maybe a couple weeks (who knows?), someone may have an idiot-proof guide or simple root out. Your call.

    I used this as an opportunity to learn how to use adb.

    I might give it a go and see how it goes. I can always use the RUU to return to stock if i mess up right? I have everything backed up on my SD card
