    Must have been corrupted as you suggested. Downloaded the files again into c:/root, ran the batch file in fastboot and BAM! Now I'm waiting the dreaded five minutes. We'll see. You guys are the best! Thanks for being so responsive. I'll report.

    That finally did the trick. I did neet to pull the battery since the Google screen did lock. Once I rebooted, I had root, updated superuser, installed busybox, addfree, etc. Good to go. YOU FOLKS ARE THE BEST!! Thank you!

    Mine keeps getting stuck on <waiting for device>. I can see the Android 1.0 in my device manager. I've installed the Samsung drivers and the PDAnet drivers. I've followed the directions to the letter so far, but my cmd prompt keeps getting stuck on the <waiting for device>

    Any suggestions?

    Something else to try. Boot into recovery (three finger salute) without connecting usb. Once in the bootloader, then connect usb, and try again.
