    pacedrum69, nacosta :

    You might get more assistance from the readers if you tell them what you are using.

    You know - Windows Xp, Windows Vista, Windows 7 ? 32-bit or 64-bit?

    Perhaps someone that went down the same road as you (with the same OS) can offer some advice.

    Also, it occurs to me that the early RUU updates - for instance MR2, which is still available for download from HTC's distribution supplier (PCD phones) at

    Personal Communications Devices (see link on right side of page "MR2 Upgrade")

    did not require users to first install (Windows) drivers before running the utility - so I suppose that means that the RUU installs the drivers itself. That being the case, you could use that just for the driver install, and cancel it before it installs anything on the phone:

    Run the MR2 RUU installer right up to the point where it is has communicated with the phone, and is is ready to start the install to the phone- and then cancel it! (You are using the MR2 RUU to just install the drivers, that's all!).

    (Please do not use the recently-announced "Leak-V3" RUU for this, as there is a small risk that folks will click "next" one times too many and render their phones unrootable)

    Finally, you should be able to figure out whether you have successfully installed the drivers without doing anything to the phone, by using the commands

    Code (Text):
    1. adb devices
    (with phone booted into main OS and the Settings->Applications->Development->USB debugging toggle turned on)


    Code (Text):
    1. fastboot devices
    (with phone in fastboot mode : boot into HBOOT with Vol-down+End/Power, then press Send)

    Search the "All Things Root (Eris)" forum for details about those two commands.


    PS pacedrum69: Please self-report this thread (the little exclamation point in the triangle)

    <====== over there

    to a moderator and ask them politely to move this thread to the "All Things Root (Eris)" sub-forum.
