    I won't argue relevancy with you. I will say that it will be much easier for people to find in the root forum itself. I would hope that anyone looking to root would look there before doing anything rather than in this thread.

    I think I figured it out. The superboot is not just the insecure boot image but it also include an automated install of superuser files and such. I think that's where the incompatibility comes into question and causes an issues. Yep, manual way should work no problem, as well as the CWM method I posted.

    EDIT: But as the mod says let's keep all root talk to the appropriate threads. I think this is valuable info that may indeed get lost.

    Fair enough. First I'd seen it. Perhaps I was too busy reading/posting to this thread and playing Skyrim to have seen it :)

    It's oddly quiet in here, even for night. I fully expect this thread to explode later today with it then being locked tomorrow.

    It was nuts earlier. You'd go to reply to someone and by the time you posted the message, it was 3 pages later and everyone had changed the subject... craziness.

    Wow... dead in here. Guess these guys don't want the phone too bad if they can sleep so easily, lol.

    Anyone know how much a Costco membership costs? I highly, highly doubt that they will be the first to launch the phone, but hey stranger things have happened. If need be, I'll buy a membership, but I have no clue what it runs. $50? more?

    $100 a year. A but steep, but pays for itself if you shop there a lot.

    Ah, geez... I don't even have one within 30 minutes of me, so I highly doubt I'd use it ever again (unless for another phone possibly). Let's just hope that Costco isn't the intial launch, with VZW following on Friday or something. But hey, that could be the "slow launch" they are talking about. Highly unlikely, but ya never know.
