    I have a refurbished phone to replace my last one. I rooted it using gscript. This is how I rooted my previous phone. On my last phone I flashed plain Jane. This time i do not want a Rom just Su so I can install wireless tether. After using gscript it tells me I now have a rooted phone I reboot goto market install wireless tether than when I attempt to use it it tells me I need a rooted phone. What am I missing?

    I would guess you need to flash the engtools3.zip file.

    I say "guess" because of the vagueness of the details that you offered.

    Sorry for the lack of details. I followed the root for dummies thread.

    Do a search of this forum for "engtools3.zip", you will find instructions for what you are looking for.

    The download of the "engtools3.zip" file will be in a thread on XDA in the Dev forum for Eris started by user jcase.

    If a link to that post is not in a search result in this forum, then search over there.
