    I downloaded all of the files required or atleast that i thought were required and proceeded to use the revolutionary tool to turn the S-OFF and install the clockwork mod (I am currently using my phone to connect my computer to the internet VIA PDA NET). So while i was using the revolutionary tool to attempt to root the phone it went through the process and turned the S-OFF Successfully but something was wrong with the img file and it did not flash the recovery etc... So basically all i have is S-OFF with no SU permissions or recovery and i'm lost at where to try to pick up on this. I would appreciate any help that someone could provide to me I've been searching the internet and IRC chat rooms for days and keep coming up at a dead end.

    all you need to do is skip to the swicthing recoveries section in the guide and you can get the amon ra recovery to flash the su file.

    I did a google search for RA Recovery and found this site
    [Recovery] [09-Feb-2011] RA-supersonic-v2.3 - xda-developers

    So you're saying to use this as opposed to the clockwork method? Could you point me at a step by step tutorial on how to do it with this recovery method? I'm pretty computer literate but this is my first time at attempting to root a phone.

    I think the steps are in the GB rooting guide. If not, go here for the instructions and a download link for the Amon RA 2.3 zip that you need.
