I have tried several guides to no avail, and it seems everything I am doing is wrong. I have installed the SDK following the instructions found here (Howto: Install the Android SDK - CyanogenMod Wiki), and yes the device serial number gets listed under adb devices. Then I used z4root 1.3. This does absolutely nothing but hang the phone causing it to need the battery pulled. I have tried the official HTC Sync software to no avail as well. I am simply looking for a way to gain TEMPORARY root access to get rid of the crapware on the Android (like the Amazon MP3 app, Twitter, etc). I dont want to, nor am I attempting to flash my phone or do anything to permanently alter it in a manner that Sprint wouldn't like. Does anything work for what I am trying to do?
