The Samsung drivers seem to work just fine but when I boot to the bootloader, my device manager drops the Samsung driver notices and gives me an error "unknown device". Please help. I'm stuck.
    It took me 3-4 tries to get that PdaNet to work right. Keep trying.. Otherwise, I use Win 7 and not XP so I wonder if that is it? Maybe someone else can comment?

    It will boot loop a a couple times after unlocking the boot loader it is totally normal. Those who can't get "android 1.0" to install use the "Let me pick" option and choose Samsung mobile phone from the list iirc. Provided you have the Samsung drivers installed.

    It worked on my third try, thanks. Who knows ... When i tried it the third time it was clearly different and the driver under "Android Device" changed and was then listed as Android 1.0. Cool.

    Benson, you happen to catch my link about the 1/2 price extended battery from VZW??
    If you always seem to have drama in your life, you are probably the one causing the drama.
    If customer service representatives or restaurant servers always seem to be rude to you, you are probably the one being rude.
    If your computer always seems to be freezing up on you, you're probably doing something wrong.

    In my experience, drama begets drama, rudeness begets rudeness, and ineptitude begets ineptitude.

    Did you wait 5 minutes and battery pull? Mine hung on the Google logo as well. I pulled the battery, then rebooted and all was well.

    Just finished unlocking the bootloader and rooting. Very straightforward and easy. Just curious though, will I still receive and be able to install OTA updates if I'm rooted with an unlocked bootloader?

    All it would require would be an efuse that blows the first time the bootloader is unlocked. Won't damage the device, but gives them something solid they can go on.

    No i didn't. Directly from Verizon? Link?

    Hey, that case I picked up is annoying. The case fits pretty snugly, so when you grip it, it's easy to inadvertently push the volume button. I may take an exacto knife to it to see if I can remove the tiny part that covers the volume rocker. Screen protector seems decent though.
