    Another Root trick for Win7

    After pulling some hair out I've come up with this procedure and it is 3 for 3 so far with Win7 users having problem getting into an ADB shell.

    navigate to C>Windows>System32>Drivers
    Look for a file called usbstor.sys
    You need to delete this file. If you need helping with permissions, let me know. I don't know how much you know about windows.
    After deleting this file turn the phone off and boot into recovery.
    Connect and 'click out' the SD card.
    In CMD prompt run the loop file.
    Click the power button and wait 10 seconds.
    Volume down then power button....
    Just after the white HTC screen you will hear your computer beep for an un-detect presumably for the SD click the SD back in as soon as you hear that sound. My Win7 realized the old drivers were no longer there and decided to use the ones we need.

    After this process just follow the 'root in 10 minutes' video that mejdam posted and you should be good.

    Let me know how it goes. Oh and worse case, if you're concerned with deleting system files, Windows will re-find it after we're done.

    Or you could rename the file to usbstor.sys.bak if you are really nervous about deleting windows files.

    Kregstrong...you'll get there. It just goes smoother for some folks and not so smooth for others.

    If you apply a rom or theme - backup first!
    If you don't know how to backup...Stop until you do.
    hint: I name my backups like this: sg6.0_20100428 or ss4.2_20100626 to easily find them later. rom and date.

    Or you could just restore it from the bin. I kinda forgot about that in all my excitement earlier

    My friend just left owing me 50$ I told him I could do it in 3 tries or less of pulling his battery with the loop.bat
    UPDATE: sorry I miswrote this one a bit. My friend was getting into recovery
    He couldn't push files after that cause he hadn't clicked on install from sdcard and let it error out.

    He tried all weekend with no avial, I did it first shot on his.
    And seeing it was my 3rd DI I did it in less than 10 minutes including removing all of the sence crap.

    His phone is super snappy for stock kernal he's very happy.


    when you run the loop.bat in recovery, did you make sure to run install from sdcard first and let it error ?

    thats what my friend wasn't doing

    MAD - curious how you removed sense.
    And I never ran the install before the loop.

    sorry not yet
    I wish, all in good time wait for Buglas beast



    Grab root explorer and search out all the Files related to Sense UI then use those commands and you could take it all out. jUst time consuming, unless someone does ti then pastes it all in a batch file for us

    I'd do it but I have so little time these days.
    Im so far behind on the superman theme I been working on putting out for my Moto droid and I been working on a lowdef one for my friend to put on his 3g fender.

    That and I have 3 laptops here to fix so im running low on time since I cant get off these forums since thursday night. I got about 5 hours sleep since thursday night couldn't put my incredible down as I was trying to theme it as well. That is not so easy yet ;(
