    We can't tell you what you are doing wrong without sufficient information. Lemme ask you a few questions :)

    What root guide are you using?

    Are you using a one click root app, or are you going the old fashioned way of rsd lite, update.zip on growing sdcard, blah blah?

    What happens when you get errors?

    That's odd. You can also Google it and download it from the web though. Then just pick up where you left off at on Motocache1's guide.

    What OS are you using on your PC? Are you signed on as an administrator?

    I think I've seen a few people with issues on Vista honestly but have gotten them worked out in that thread. I've already sent the link to this thread to furbearingmammal.

    Good. Alright, just let us know if that SBF file worked or not. :)
