    Try plugging your phone into a different USB port, or (if you aren't using the one that came with your phone) use the correct cable.

    Now the command prompt isn't doing anything....the beta key was accepted, but it has done anything since. It just says "Beta Key accepted - thank you for participating"

    I'd say after 15 minutes it won't hurt to try again. Start completely over and download it again and everything

    ok....well i started over and it accepted the beta key again, but before it gets to asking me about ClockWorkMod recovery it says "Zerging root...this might take a minute or so...communications with phone unexpectedly interrupted. Try again.

    What do i need to do now?

    Recovery

    Worked just fine for me. Been waiting to root my Dinc2 since coming from a D2G. Only question I have is, how do I get to the recovery page so I can make a nandroid. It seemed alot easier on the D2G. It is just nice to be able to go in and run TB and now freeze all the "Verizon" crap that is useless.

    Hold the volume down button while you boot the phone up and it will boot into HBoot. From the HBoot menu you can boot into recovery

    I may have missed the answer...

    Rooting this way is reversible, right?

    posted tomorrow using the space time continuum app on my D1...

    Got to the part about installing the "root.zip" this fails;

    installing /sdcard/root.zip
    finding update package...
    opening update package...
    verifying update package...
    e:signature verification failed
    installation aborted

    Not sure which SuperUser zip file is needed.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    Sorry I've been gone for a few days. The first thing i would do if your still trying to get it to work would be to download the root.zip again because it should work even though I personally haven't tested it. I did change the a while ago though. If it still doesn't work I can give you the old root.zip to install and that should definitely work.
