Rebooting worked. It's doing some stuff now!! Let you know how it goes.
Frig!! Clicked STEP 2 and Got the ERROR to contact someone at chat.andirc.net
Where do I go from here?
I am not in a bootloader screen on the phone, it is in android.
ERROR! Contact someone at chat.andirc.net in channel #thunderbolt. DO NOT REBOOT.Choose the bootloader option and press POWER. Allow the firmware to flash by pressing VOLUME UP. When finished please reboot into Android as you will have S-OFF.
Again, after rebooting turn USB Debugging back on and unplug your phone and plug it in again.
The phone is plugged in and sitting in android with USB debugging and charge only selected. What's my next step? Click Step 2 again?
Whew... Making some progress now. Finished flashing hbooteng.nb0
Thanks for holding my hand through this. Beverage of choice on me if we ever cross paths in real life.
Drew, yes this does whipe your phone. Who knows if we will ever get a 1 click root that doesnt wipe your phone.
I can tell you this. Rooting then using set cpu to underclock when the screen is OFF makes a HUGE difference on the battery.
