    Just rooted yesterday (was on 2.1 OTA), and ho-lee-shit, I love my phone now. Provided the process works for you, you will not be sorry at all!

    I still think yours may be easier. The new way is great, but I like the PC aspect of it. And keep in mind how many people your thread has helped/is helping/will help.

    EU1 is the mac daddy! That process looks long, but I think it's because of all the pictures. That method looks nearly bulletproof and is universal. Wow!

    Yeah, but don't tell surgeon, he worked hard on his fantastic write-up and support; I think he's sensitive right now...delicate too. Since he and I are both Texans, I suppose I should offer to help him find EU1 to take him outside and beat the crap out of him. :D











    *Note* Just kiddin' EU1.

    Does this work for Hboot 1.49? Could you point me to what root process I need for my Hboot?

    Yes. As well as following the process laid out by surgeon. Depends on what you prefer, EU1's process does not involve a computer, or driver, SDK installs, etc.
