    Installed the info here:

    public:windows_hboot_driver_install [RootWiki]

    Then I ran the reflash.exe file

    the phone reboots and the reflash program reads, "waiting for reboot"

    Then the phone starts up and the program says flashing recovery image, do not touch phone. This message stays up on the program and the phone sits on the home screen. Tried numerous times and waited well over 20 minutes at the prompt...if I get bored and unplug it after 15 minutes or so it says waiting 5 seconds because windows sucks...Plug it back in and it says waiting 3 more seconds because windows seriously sucks.....then its a waiting game and nothing progresses....any suggestions?

    Mkae sure you are using the unrevoked 3.1. Pre 3.1 versions did not play nice with windows.

    Yes, this is the 3.1 version.....do I need to do anything once the process starts or should I let it do its thing? Because its not really working out on its own....it keeps getting stuck.

    When it says flashing recovery image do not touch phone, should the phone be on the homepage? I feel like the phone either isn't booting properly or the program isn't flashing at the right time.

    Shouldn't matter what screen the phone is on. Make sure you have usb debugging on.

    Yes usb debugging is on. DO I need to delete anything from my phone? like I said I followed the instructions on the first part so it shows Android Bootloader Interface during HBOOT USB PLUG. BUt for some reason the flash portion just doesn't seem to kick in at the right time.

    I know that this method just came out yesterday, right? Any success stories using this method?

    Not a big deal:

    Be sure your rooted first

    Unplug the USB from your phone
    Close the Unrevoked
    Reboot your phone normally
    plug in phone to USB
    turn on debigging
    rerun the reflash.exe file

    It took me 2 times to get it to complete. It will say done when it has finished

    Don't be in hboot while running the tool. After the Hboot reboot the phone and go from there. There has been many succesful attempts. If it doesn't work again I would think that there is an underlying issue and iI would suggest heading into their irc.

    Is it because I haven't done this yet? I didn't uninstall HTC Sync but then again I don't know how.....did he mean HTCSense?

    GOT IT.....Found out before I read your reply. HTC Sync deleted from the computer did the trick....I wish this was notated better on the Unrevoked website. Nowhere in the instructions or within the program does it say to do this.....thanks for your help!

    OK, dumb question time: what exactly is HTC Sync, and where would I find it on the Inc to delete? Also, how do I engage the debugging function they're speaking of?

    Thanks!

    The HTC would be on your computer under applications called 'HTC Sync' and USB debugging is shown on your phone in the top status bar when its plugged in

    i ran into the same problem. after alot of searching, this thread allowed me to finally root without the long manual process.
    there were alot more pre-req's than implied by unrevoked though.

    Not really. Uninstall HTC sync, and install hboot drivers and click go. Trust me if you had rooted the old way you would not be complaining.

    i did root it the old way and it wasn't that painful if you follow the video. the only pre-req i had for the old way was to format to fat32.

    once i figured everything out, this way is much easier but there weren't clear instructions put together anywhere. i had to search all over the place to finally get everything set to root.


    now that i finally got 2.2 loaded, i learned that i have to update the radio first. everything works now including the camera and video (w/720p) but people are blowing up stating that i need the radio update. back to square one.
