    For AlphaRevX, all you do is have your phone turned on like usual and just plug in the USB cable. No need to go into recovery yourself. Program should be fully automated.

    I see, thank you...could there be something wrong with the device though, since it won't boot into recovery?

    Has it been loading correctly before now? It should just be a matter of holding the volume down button and the power button when the phone is off.

    Oh I just realized why I needed to boot into recovery. I need to know my hboot version for the beta key, or are they all the same hboot?

    NVM: Once the phone is recognized with the software, it shows your hboot version.

    Will rooting our phones prevent us from getting the VZW Gingerbread OTA update??

    Okay, y'all, I don't know if Windows is fixed yet. I did an Ubuntu Live CD. You run Ubuntu directly from the CD, no permanent install on the computer. Did that and ran the Linux version of the AlphaRevX and everything worked PERFECTLY! S-OFF achieved, rooted programs installed, everything is good to go.

    Not sure about the OTA yet. On the old Inc, once you did the rooting, your phone wouldn't get the OTA's yet, but not sure in this case. I'm pretty sure once you install custom ROM's, you're in the clear.

    I'll let you know more when I find out. So for now, run the Linux Live CD and you're good to go.

    Thank you. I ran it successfully from Ubuntu. Then recovery, then root. AWESOMENESS.

    From what I hear officially it will prevent the OTA update from Verizon for GB, BUT there will be unlocked ROM's built w/GB so that way you'll get root w/GB; best of both worlds. If you get the OTA update you lose root so you have to decide.

    I didn't find a video tutorial but S off was easy in Linux, it was hard to get the recovery part...

    is this a one step root program or something? Such as, push start and it does everything for you , just like all those apps for the Original Droid that could root it for you?
