Need Help! Rooting Not Working!
Ok, so this is going to seem really stupid to a lot of you, but I feel like trying to root my Droid is going to be the death of me. Spent 4 hours last night and got no where. FAST! Monkey 0 Football 14.
Ok before I explain my problem and steps I took, first let me tell you my set up. HP Desktop Running Win7-64. DroidA855 running 2.1.
I followed all of the steps listed in several different articles. I installed the drivers(4.2) then RSD lite(4.6). Got my phone to bootloader, and it shows up in RSD lite. Try to upload the new SBF file. I get the typical error of not being to write to blah blah blah.... some code ending in 000007. OK No big deal. Try rebooting CPU and start over. Now RSD lite wont even see my phone when its in bootloader. I unistalled the drivers, CC cleaned the registries, updated drivers to 4.5 and 4.6, each time clearing out old drivers and rebooting and CC cleaning. Changed versions of RSD lite. tried combos of all of that.
Nothing. A hundred reboots and everything i can think of. Ive been to twenty differerent links where everyone has a "sure-fire" "fool-proof" way to make it work. Right... Easier said than done. I ve done everything I can think of. I made sure that the device manager reads the phone as Moto blah blah and not Android blah blah.
When I hook up the phone when on and mount it, it shows just the SD card in My Computer, and in devices, it shows A855 as a hard drive.
I really wanted this to work. I dont understand why it wont. I dont get it. So I feel like a dumbass for getting stuck like this. But hey.... i know when to ask for directions when Im lost and running out of gas.
I think i Know what to do once RSD lite will recognize the phone. But I need help getting it to recognize it. Right now RSD lite looks the same in all the fields whether the phone is plugged in and on bootloader or completely unplugged.
Anything that you can do to provide me the chance to join the Froyo club would be appreciated.
Oh, as to other posts I have seen about trying a non-Win7 cpu... its not an option for me. Both my CPU's are running win7-64.
Oh, if there is anyone in Charleston, SC feeling really helpful, maybe you could show me how to do this. That would be sweet. Since evidently, I am ****** of the highest order!
Thanks for any input or help you can provide.
