    So for the last cuple of days I have been trying root my moment using the sw update and system tool but have run into problem with the phone connecting during downloading. So I was wondering if there is a way to root/flash the phone using terminal emulator and telnet?

    If you get to the point where you're at the download page and it hangs without transfering the rom, try unplugging and reinserting the usb cable. I know it says don't do it, but it's worked for me. What you don't want to do is unplug the cable while the transfer is occurring.

    If it is that your update software does not see the phone, then you will have to do this.....
    (copied my own solution from an earlier thread)
    You need to uninstall all Samsung software and drivers completely. Do this the normal way through Control Panel.
    After that, you need to go into your registry and delete all Samsung folders.
    You open up Regedit in Windows
    Then go to HKEY CURRENT USER, Expand that (+), expand Software
    and delete the Samsung folder
    Do the same for HKEY LOCAL MACHINE
    When you simply uninstall Samsung stuff, it leaves a bunch of junk in the registry of the computer even after uninstall.
    Reboot the computer with no phone attached.
    Download the Samsung update from Sprint


    Install the updater. After its installed, right click the SWUpgrade and run as administrator....Follow all on screen instructions, and you should be good.

    If you do not need the updater, then you can skip the software install and just download the drivers for the phone from the SDX forum. Just do a search.
    But I suggest you do it this way, it was the only thing that worked for me...

    Hope this helps

    You need to go into the registry.....
    In XP, just type into the command prompt (run)( you can hit Ctrl+r, or Start and click Run)
    A screen will pop up with about 6 folders on the left, then follow those instructions for deleting...

    Ok I had to do what you where saying Steve on a lab top with windows 7 because it was not working on my windows xp so big thanks for that. Oh I also found some other options for people who still having this problem from SDX:

    Try leaving Device Manager open and all fields expanded, then have your phone boot up into Android mode while plugged in, see what appears in dev-man, right-click anything related to the phone, select Uninstall, then check the box for Delete driver software. Repeat this in download mode and recovery mode, then check Programs and Features for anything samsung/android/sprint/phone related and uninstall it, then reboot with the phone unplugged. That should get you about as clean as you can get.
