    thanks for the update. just let us know how it goes,if you dont mind. i was afraid you had bricked your phone and just werent coming back :eek:

    not that i think that will happen. ;) i think one of the 2 ruus will fix you up so you can reroot correctly.

    For the method u told me.. all I would have to do is download the first link to get me back and then I'm unrooted?

    ok im offically lost.. i dowloaded it.. extracted it because it wasnt reading it.. so now i have tons of files on my laptop. how do i get it on my phone? just plug in my phone and drag it.. or drag the unextracted one on my phone?

    nvm i just read the part where it says do not extract it, so i deleted the extracted part and i am just going to take the zip part and drag it to my sd card? and do what the directions say for the flash hboot ?

    Just so were on the same page...
    -power off
    -press and hold volume down
    -press and hold power
    -hold until something happens...

    You get a black screen?
    Did you go to settings/power and make sure there is not a checkmark next to fastboot?

    Your awesome! I just unchecked the check mark next to fast boot! Hopefully this will work this time I will do it as soon as I get home from work

    Do you have your phone with you? You can go ahead and verify that you can get into hboot. If you can,then you should be in good shape to flash the ruu :)

    Do you mean you are still unable to get to hboot via power/volume down?

    also,was it the first ruu that worked for you or did you have to go to the second?

    check your firmeware version and verify youre now 1.12.605.6 or .9
