    I've been tempted for the past few weeks to root my phone.... i've read the forums....watched the videos...the one's at droid-life are really good to follow btw..... last night I got up enough courage to give it a try.... I downloaded the .sbf recov file....and installed the 32 bit drivers...however when I went to flash the phone it failed..... twice...granted the first time I had forgotten to install the drivers....my question is this...I have now downloaded everything that I need to on my desktop comp instead of my laptop..... last night when i tried this and held the arrow up key and power it was trying to "Install new hardware" which is what made it fail...it didn't find the drivers for some reason... even after they were installed..... I would appreciate any help...like i said I am following the videos/instructions on droid life because they are laid out pretty smoothly..... what exactly would it take to brick this phone...i'm not seeing a whole lot of threads about people who have bricked em...thanks for the help guys....I need all I can get!
