    Not sure why I can't paste my message but here goes, unrEVOked is Killing any exisiting adb daemons. What does that mean? My phone show S-Off. What does that mean. I got a terminal emulator from Market and "su" does not change $ to # with access denied (or words to that effect). What does that mean? Is there a link to ClockworkMod Is that the best course of action? It is an image file. Am I supposed to use IsoBuster to extract or burn it to a CD? Thanks for any answer. I think I put in the effort.

    This will not be accepted: "try doing a search, or simply just browse through this forum and all those questions have been answered several, if not hundreds, of times...." mfer :eek:

    1. Download the Forums for Android™ app!


  2. S = Security
    SU = Super User (switch user uID0:root)

    Go to XDA Evo thread all howto you will find it there. Also what do you mean burn it to CD? You mean *.img? I don't think they are ISO9660 so you won't able to flash it.

    Ok, let's start with this. What exactly is happening? Are you getting error messages?

    You have S-OFF, but that's only part of the process. Do you have the superuser app? If you go back to hboot, then select the option for recovery, where does it take you? Even if the process partially finished, it's fairly easy to finish it manually.

    Assuming you only have S-OFF, and do not have Clockwork, go to the Rooting for Dummies guide, then go to the troubleshooting section. There is a section there about getting a CID error. While that might not be the error you got, the instructions will help you finish rooting, all the same.

    This is not entirely true, all s-off means is that you have your security turned off. Here is some stuff I need you to do that can help pinpoint what exactly is wrong.

    1. go to your app list and see if you have the Super User app

    2. boot into h-boot (hold down volume and power until white screen comes on) then click on recovery

    3. if you get a black screen with a phone and a red exclamation point then you need to install a recovery through a PC36IMG, if it goes into recovery post which version you have it should be at the bottom of the screen

    If you can post this info it would be great.

    EDIT: Figures Akaza beat me to it lol :)

    Thanks, I will work on it.

    When I go from hboot to recover the phone goes to an inert dark screen with a triangle with a "!" in the middle (no arrows). The usbloader file appears in device manager under android phone. I cleared storage once with a down volume. Next time I flashed, unrEVOked pushed really fast and then a message, "waiting for reboot." I'm confounded by the amount of time unrEVOked takes to make changes. I did have 190 applications on it but they should be gone now. I left it on all night last night but at least got the S-Off. It was disappointing to not pass the terminal emulator test.

    Well, you got part of the process done. It's been happening lately with the latest version. Unrevoked does three things:

    1) Root your ROM
    2) Give you a custom recovery
    3) Give you S-OFF

    You managed to get S-OFF, but failed to get the first two. If you go to the troubleshooting section in the Rooting for Dummies guide (sticky in the root section), you'll find the steps to finish rooting manually. Let me know if you need more instructions on it, and I can help you out. Basically, you're going to flash recovery, then flash a rooted ROM.

    I will post the results of how I rooted and what to look when you're staring at your computer for hours - on another night. I hit the "back" button and lost my work.
