    Default Problems Rooting after OTA Gingerbread Update

    I just got the OTA Gingerbread update, EI22. I want to root it now, so I followed these instructions:

    Rooting EI22 Gingerbread Instructions

    Everything goes fine until Step 7. When the phone reboots it does not go into ACS recovery mode. I'm not able to complete Step 8 and flash the phone for root access.

    Anyone else encountering this? Any suggestions on what I can try to root? Thanks in advance for your help.

    You would probably get more viewers to this thread if it was posted in the correct area

    Please don't repost it, I will have one of the mods move it over to the Rooting and Hacking section...

    Not a big deal, just keep it in mind for next time

    - Flash CWM with ODIN
    - Flash Su with CWM

    You should then be able to boot into CWM recovery.

    also at first i thought it wasnt working, but basically it didn't actually boot me right into the CWM. after I Odin the CWM i manually went into recovery (shut down, hold: vol-, camera and power)
