    I downloaded unrevoked3 and installed the ADB software to my computer and tryed to perform the rooting process. After the phone was set to USB debugging mode and what not the rotting began. After it rebooted a few times i get this message ""waiting for bootloader; make sure driver is installed". i tried numerous amounts of time still the same result. Is there anyway around this or should i try this method from another computer

    Are you attempting to root an Incredible (I ask because your name indicates you have a Droid X and your phone information is blank)? If so, how new is your phone? If it's one of the new Incredible models then you need more than just that tool, I believe.

    Rooting stock 2.2 using unrEVOked 3.21

    Try following this guide and see if it's the same. Even if it is, try downloading anything suggested in-thread from the links they provide. Never know when something might screw up. :)

    Oh, and Good Luck! :) If you run into any problems don't hesitate to ask there or here. You might get a response faster there, and it might be more on-topic, as I don't have an Inc, but I can look for you if you can't find it.

    Doug, you took the words right out of my mouth. OP, did you read the tutorial and follow the links for the driver exactly? Even if you have an SLCD device, the rooting process itself is the same. The extra step comes after unrEVOked has run and we can walk you through that with another tutorial.

    Once you get tbe Unrevoked software make sure before you start you click more info on their page and read it.

    After doing so, I found not mentioned in the software was a link for windows users to dl hboot driver.

    Look here http://unrevoked.com/rootwiki/doku.php/public/unrevoked3 after this the process was simple.

    Hmm, the tutorial that was linked to above contains complete instructions, including driver download and installation (written in bold red colors as the most important step). Many people have used the guide without any issues but we would certainly update it if you find deficiencies in it. If so, Marco, please PM me so we can make the tutorial as helpful as possible.

    I'm not good enough to scan or review your system, I can only say from reading your guide.... Its way more confusing then the guide from Unrevoked.


    The software was simple but their picture play by play of the hboot was considerably easier to follow for a noobie like myself then a

    I don't feel attacked or defensive at all- just confused. We do everything we can to make things as easy to follow as possible, and if something isn't working we change it. That goes for IF.com and DF.net. The goal is to help people, so I appreciate hearing suggestions.
