    I can say i rooted my wifes v3 leak in less then 10 minutes ...most of that reading ....with wag3slav3's root option....which in turn jcase cleaned it up even a little more .... why not just use these options ....

    i just got my refurb today since i was no longer worried of losing root

    so i will be doing it again when i get home

    I'm not a computer noob, but I can't seem to get the SDK usb driver installed. :(

    I downloaded and installed the usb driver through the SDK setup.exe. I enable usb debugging on the Eris, then plug in the Eris to the usb port. I get the windows needs to install the driver for adb. I go through the browsing to the SDK\tools\usb drivers folder and click next and get a usb driver not found error. :thinking:

    What am I doing wrong? I am using a Windows Vista Home Edition Premium 64 bit machine.

    Yup I tried it, and worked great. Once I got to recovery I flash EngTools.zip instead of a regular rom so that way I keep all my data (no wipe) and have the phone root.

    Try installing HTC Sync. It seems to be better at getting the right driver installed.
