    After repeating the same unplug from computer plug in, go to bootloader and click file about thirty thousand times, it worked. Then hung on the google screen, so I unplugged after 15, gave it another 15, sweated bullets, then pulled the battery and it booted back up in 5 seconds with root.

    Creating a nandroid backup now, supreme victory has been achieved.

    Thanks

    Worked well wish i would have read the trouble shooting first to make sure drivers installed properly. After that worked like a charm and creating a back up as I type. Thank OP for this.

Everything went perfectly fine after that. When you get to Google screen at the end, just walk way. Go take a shower or watch TV, when you come back, it will be rooted!

    So I've followed all the steps and tried the troubleshooting. It still isn't working for me. After the troubleshooting a couple times it recognized the phone and the drivers don't have a yellow triangle next to the device anymore, but when I try to run the command it still says waiting for device. Any ideas?

    Edit: After I tried again it worked, not sure why. Is it bad that it worked but in the command prompt it said "FAILED: Too many links" or something like it?

    Edit: Alright it all worked now I'm just sitting at the Google screen hoping I got this!

    Has anyone done this successfully on a mac? Can said person, give detailed instructions or at the very least, anything that the OP didn't cover?

    Is it pluggen into the computer if so disconect that first and see what happens. If that fails then shut it off then on. I had the same issue and ultimatley resorted to a pull myself.

    Mine rebooted just fine I am activating mine right now and think it will be fine.

    "The superboot image is also 'insecure', allowing you to use 'adb remount' as well as having full ADB root access to your device until such time as you reboot after running this process (it's a non permanent ADB root as it's a 'fastboot boot' and not a 'fastboot flash')."

    So this is not a permanent root? If the battery dies, Reboot for an update, or any other reason you turn off your phone you will loose root?

    worked like a charm. if you waited a few days to root like i did, don't worry about your phone getting wiped, any apps will auto download as long as you have google sync/back up turned on before you do this.

    I have been able to root every device i have had. For some reason I have tried everything to install the fastboot drivers without any luck. Used sdk method with no luck.

    I have adb access when the phone is booted up, but when I am in bootloader mode the phone's drivers are not installed. I have followed every single instructions. This root process is a mess, I mean Why it wont install the drivers blows my mind.

    Just awesome. No trouble at all. The key is in the drivers for sure.

    how are you guys able to load the drivers. I can use commands while the phone is booted up, after I use command adb reboot bootoader and it goes in to fast boot mode, it wont recognize the phone anymore and any driver I try doesn't work at all.

    Make sure you down load all three files, then run the VZW.exe file before starting the guide. If your phone isn't recognized see the "tips" at the bottom of the guide.
