I have a Samsung Galaxy S Epic 4G running gingerbread 2.3.6 FC09. I am trying to root the phone using the directions found in this video
I follow all the steps exactly. When I put the phone into download mode and plug it into my computer my computer stops recognising my phone and it does not show up in ODIN can someone please please help
You will also need to download the driver software from samsung. The "usb mode" changes when you go into download, and the drivers to let windows see the microsd card won't work for that. Also try a different cable, usb port, or even a different computer failing that.
I have installed and uninstalled and reinstalled the the USB drivers from the link provided in the youtube video. I have tried different usb ports and I have tried other usb cables. I only have a laptop so I can't try another computer.
