    Google wugs root tool, you need a PC just about any way you go rooting and unlocking bootloader, when you unlock it, the program will wipe everything

    Understandable that is how I found it, I don't have the link, it is on the galaxy nexus form, it can root and unlock boot loader on GSM and cdma don't think there is another version of this for and other device a least not that I am aware of, it will even install the right drivers on your computer for you

    There are so many good roms out there. Are you coming from a OG Droid? I am currently running liquid 1.0 and it's amazing. Great battery life and lots of features. I've had no problems what so ever. Also sourcery is supposed to drop sometime soon which was great on the OG. I think pe is in the works also. Cyanogen has some builds out also. I have tried aokp, codename, gummy, axioms newest and now settled on liquid. Those were all good. Liquid suits me better and am familiar with it coming from the OG.

    Had the same issue with mine. What I had to do was do a windows update. I ran the check for updates and a few things popped up. I can't remember exactly but there was something listed under other when the update list popped up. It says something like Samsung Ltd. Or something like that. I installed that and ran the other update and restarted the PC. After that it was fine and worked properly.
