    I was having a heck of a time until I did 2 things.

    1.) I went through the ADB setup program, and I checked JUST the usb drivers, it failed, so I went into the settings, and checked the checkbox under there. I forget exactly what it was, but it finally allowed it to download and install them. Once that installed, bingo, I had the bootloader drivers and everything showing up perfect.

    2.) After that, I used the cheap-o Walmart PNY 2gb card, and 2nd try I got in no problem.


    Before this, I tried literally for days hours on hours to get it, and I could NOT get past the device not found. Doing the above was the key. :)

    Was it the 'force http' setting?

    That's what I'm thinking. That is the only way to get the USB drivers to download.

    Weird - I never downloaded those drivers. I canceled out like the video and mine worked.
    I wonder how many hours I could've saved myself:laugh:

    I think the drivers that are installed when you run the HTC Sync program as directed by the video work just as good as the drivers you can download via the sdk, maybe better.

    I don't think it's the drivers at all

    I don't think it's the drivers at all, I think it's how windows SEES the phone in recovery. If you notice with either of the drivers it shows abd bootloader in the devices..it's just that when you switch to recovery it loses the bootloader driver and goes directly to mass storage. We need an app that connects to the phone ONLY with bootloader....

    My 2 cents - I couldn't get root no matter how much I tried - tried every trick,every variation of every process,for 3 days. When I saw the post about deleting the usbstor.sys file - I tried that,on regular windows xp,service pack 2, and redid the 10 min. video process,along with the popping out sd card,and back in just before recovery mode,and it worked 1st try.
    That being said, I think the drivers may have something to do with it - nothing worked for me until I deleted that file....

    I was able to get it three times. But definitely not in a row.
    The first time was after I first read about the SD pop in trick.
    The second time was right after deleting the USBSTOR.sys
    The third time was a fluke and just kinda happened.

    My Incredible has to go back this weekend, though. So I figured it was time to stop popping the case on and off.
