Don't know what I am doing wrong but when I put my phone into debugging mode and attempt to mount my phone to copy the file to root, the phone refuses to communicate with my computer. It only communicates with my computer when debugging mode is not on. The drivers are installed and I am following the directions perfectly. I guess I am just not meant to root this damn phone hahaha.

Hey guys... I was about to do the one click root, but realized I never went back and got the drivers. I have a Mac (forgot to mention that earlier) and I saw a guide on xda that said mac users dont need to dl the drivers... is there any truth to that? Do you know why that would be? I just want to make sure before I hit the root button.

Me again... so I did the one click root
After I use the volume down to click on the reinstall packages Im getting an error message...
(no such file or directory)
Any ideas? lol I use Salling for file transfer, I dont know if that makes a difference in anything... I tried it w/ and w/o ejecting. Same thing...

I just got it! Apparently on Macs you (in addition to the usb debugging) you have to eject both sd cards (internal and external) from your desktop then in your notifications bar up top click the turn off usb storage.
Then hit the root button.
It worked after I did that.
Maybe having that usb storage on (which is default) blocks the app from installing the update.zip which makes it unable to find.
But yaay! Once it rebooted with the update file, I tried the titanium app as a check to see if it was really rooted and I kept getting an error message, but I do have a new superuser app so Im hoping its good. Im tired though, I'll play around more tmrw lol

Rooting and Froyo
OK I never had a desire to go to Froyo on the cap, until I was playing with my friends phone today. I have been reading a few articles on here about rooting and what not and that process seems simple enough with the update.zip file and getting that going. I have yet to do that though. I just want to make sure I have all my ducks in a row before I start getting this evening project started. I just have a couple questions that I am curious about and I was hoping to count on everyone elses expertise in thise area.
1. What is Odin, everyone talks about it on here like we all know what it is (maybe everyone but me does) and where would I be able to download it at?
2. Is rooting required to update to Froyo?
3. Where can I get Froyo, I saw a link earlier mentioning getting it from XDA, but they weren't very clear on the instructions. Is Odin required for this? I would like to be able to one day go back to stock if needed.
Thanks in advance guys, and if I over looked any of these questions in previous threads, I would love to be pointed in the correct direction so that I can find out everything I need to know to have Froyo up and running by tomorrow AM.

I found this
"I know this has been posted before but I still have not found any responses. Here is my situation:
*My computer recognizes the phone
*ODIN recognizes the phone
*the phone is in download mode
*ODIN gets stuck
*I have tried multiple times, but it continuously gets stuck at DO NOT TURN OFF TARGET!!
*The max I have waited is around 30ish minutes
*3 button combo works on my phone
*I have tried non-one click ODIN to JH2 and it freezes on modem.bin
I have used ODIN before, and I have no idea why this is not working. If anyone could help me it would be greatly appreciated.
PROBLEM SOLVED: Antivirus software screwed with ODIN"
