    It works for me. Which method are you using to install the drivers?

    I just double click and use all the default install location. Didn't see any other options.

    Team Rogue just released their stock pulled kernel with their modified CWM and init.d support. I'm gonna give it a try tonight... Flash right over LoStKernel.

    Ha a couple hours after reading your post last night I was a keyboard click a way from loading it up then decided not.
    45 min later device was flipping into roam - 1x for 30 min then LOS kicked in.
    Performance issue was caused by tower but if I would of loaded kernel it would of been at fault because I wouldn't of bothered checking service outages

    Oh and what a relief seeing that circle line icon , I'm now a part of the hate Samsung gang & Dg is my leader lol

    Good thing you didn't install something like Angry Birds right before the tower problems I can see the responses at XDA that Angry Birds causes LoS.

    LOL! You broke your cherry!

    Edit - I re-read your post and saw that you did have to toggle roaming off and back on to gain a signal again.

    Oh by the way ... I flashed Team Rogue's stock kernel last night. So far so good!

    LOL! You broke your cherry! Well, maybe not ...

    If I remember reading your description of this in another thread, your phone recovered on its own. I.E. you did not need to reboot to regain a signal. To me, this is not LOS, but a good old fashioned service outage. Real LOS is where signal drops out permanently, and your battery burns down (as your phone furiously tries to re-establish service and sync data services) with the phone in your pocket or on your nightstand until you notice it and reboot.

    Oh by the way ... I flashed Team Rogue's stock kernel last night. So far so good!
    Well look don't take away my one and only LOS since owning device lol.
    It was real I know it was it just was and its evil Samsungs fault!
    But on a serious note,
    I want to be able to load custom boot animations so I'm going to give that kernel a go this weekend.


    Update:
    Your post Edit gave me back my first official LOS thanks lol

    Yeah I just edited my post after re-reading your post in the other thread. Credit where credit is due bro! Bask in the glory of LOS!

    And yeah, custom boot animation was probably the only thing holding me back from flashing stock-pulled. With Rogue's stock kernel, it's the best of both worlds. I never overclock anyways, so I can certainly make do without a custom kernel until the LOS thing gets resolved, not that LOS troubled me much anyways

    Best of 2.5 worlds. Stock kernel supports overclocking through Tegrak.

    Yeah hehe. I thought about that after I hit the submit button. It probably would have been more appropriate to use other tweaks in the kernel as a reason, but honestly, I don't even know what those are.

    Yes I turned it on. It appears that the Samsung drivers are not working with my PC correctly.

    **update someone on the Samsung tech forums. "The tech told me that it wouldn't work on Win7 x64 (she said Win7 32-bit is supported)"
    Anyone get this working on Win 7 x64?
    I helped someone on xda figure out what there problem was. The UPST settings were configured for Diagnostic mode only thus the phone wasn't being recognized as an Android device.

    Anyway, I wrote up a debugging checklist (Reference Section E3)
    Why is the install stuck waiting for device to be connected?

    Your phone isn't being recognized by your PC as an Android device.

    When the drivers are installed and the phone is properly recognized, you should see the following in start->run->devmgmt.msc

    Code:
    Android Phone
      SAMSUNG Android ADB Interface
    
    Modem
      SAMSUNG Mobile USB Modem
    Until you get the SAMSUNG Android ADB Interface to show up, neither ADB nor this script will work.

    Here is a debugging checklist:
    1) dial ##UPST# (##8778#) in the dialer and verify AP (or ALL) is checked (if CP is checked, phone won't be recognized as an Android device)
    2) restart the ADB server (choose Option G to stop the server, it'll get started automatically by the script)
    3) verify USB Debugging is ENABLED
    4) verify USB drivers are installed
    5) try a different usb cable

    None yet Sling. At least none that would jump out at you. Although, I take it on faith that the script is actually working. I'm sure there's a way to test to see if the phone is being underclocked at certain battery levels but I don't exactly know of one.

    Hello, This is my first time rooting. I followed the steps exactly and I believe I achieved root. I now have superuser installed. But what do I do next? I have no idea how to install CWM5. I am trying to follow reference C but I don't understand what it means. I need a little guidance on this part. Please anyone? Thanks!!!

    Just start RUNFIRST again, then choose Option C.

    Reference Section C just explains what you are installing.

    Looking at RUNSTART program, is it easy to unroot? Any problems with doing it? I have a replacement phone coming from Sprint in a few days and might try it till it gets here. Then unroot before I swap it with Sprint.

    It is actually RUNFIRST (not RUNSTART).

    I can guarantee that unroot (Option B) will undo everything that root did (Option A)

    If you install other apps with your newly found root powers that placed themselves in /system, then that is on you to undo first.

    Power down
    Press and Hold [Power] [Vol Up] [Home]

    Program worked flawlessly after getting windows and Samsung drivers working. Got full root and then added the modified stock kernel to add CWM5. Thank to everyone for your input trying to get my drivers straightened out. I actually got the Samsung USB drivers working on Win7 64 with the most obvious work around.

    The Samsung USB drivers install by default to c:/Program files/Samsung/USB drivers
    On 64Bit windows this for 64bit programs while regular 32bit go in the c:/Program files (x86)/Samsung
    All I did was change the installation destination to the 32bit program folder. Drivers instantly started working. Hope this might save someone a bit of time and trouble.

    This worked great for me. As a side benefit, my phone now shows up as a drive in Windows so I can use my sync program for music. Previously it showed as a device and I couldn't do much other than drag and drop.

    So with this root method, is it virtually impossible to soft brick this device during the process of it?

    Edit: went ahead and rooted my dad's E4GT and boy is it blazing fast! I'm running Starburst 1.9.8 with zedomax's Epictouchkernal v6.02

    New to the rooting world. I used this to root my S2Epic. Option A. What next to basically start putting customs roms etc? Do i have to install the clockworks. Can someone give me step by step and maybe a good rom to stick with without LOS occurring.

    After you root your phone, you should use the same program to install EG30 or EG31 (your choice) and included with either one is CWM5 and then you can flash whatever you want.
