1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    I've tried using the search feature, but it REALLY sucks on this forum; I got all kinds of hits for things that weren't related. Google searching found a similar problem, but no resolution was in it.

    I'm reading through the instructions and there are some things that aren't clear to me. I didn't see that it states where to place files for rooting. I have all the files from that thunderbolt.rar archive sitting in a folder on my desktop along with the rooter.exe. I also have the same files, sans rooter.exe, on the root of my SD card. I'm not sure if I have them in the right location.

    I click Step 1 on Easy Rooter. First screen seems to go okay, but the "pushing files" part is done in a flash and my phone never reboots. I haven't been able to find a solution to the no-reboot problem and I suspect I may have done something wrong. Running the rooter.exe as Administrator has not changed my outcome.

    Anybody have advice?

    Thanks much!

    Edit: I do have USB debugging on, have tried rebooting my phone, and have Fast Boot disabled.
