    This is a simple batch file that will guide you in rooting your device.
    It is pretty easy to follow along but please take your time and read everything. It has only been tested a few times so please report any errors or issues you find.

    Used this this morning! Works great!! There are a few times where the cmd won't recognize that Debugging is on. To fix, just toggle it off then back on. dancedroid

    Hey Guys,

    I attempted to root my phone using this method and it looks like things didn't work out. I apologize if I come off as sounding like a n00b, but well... I am. :) I believe my error occured when I failed to rename the new zip file. Since I can't respond to the original thread on xda-developers, I will quote where I believe someone else ran into the same problem as I did:

    At this point I do not have superuser permissions and I'm wondering if I can just try the process over again? I opened up the one click rooting method script again and at the first step where it says, "If the above number ends in 605.6 or 605.9 then you can root, IF NOT THEN YOU CANNOT ROOT USING THIS METHOD," the "above number" referenced has the following message: "'adb' is not regonzied as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file"

    Do I have to factory reset the phone? Any suggestions? Thank you!

    OK, a few noob questions, where do I get the Exploits.zip,PG05IMG.zip & Downgrade RUU files? Do I run adb while in sdk? And at what point in the process is that done?

    I apologize for my ignorance, coming from D1 z4root. But I did look for the files, can't find them anywhere.

    Thanks for the download mirrors and the link. I'm at the point in the video where you have to update the driver to one of the files downloaded. However, in my device manager I never saw the "Other Devices" Adb. Mine already comes up at the top saying "Android Usb Devices"- My HTC. I downloaded the HTC sync so I have the proper drivers for the TB. What I'm wondering is which driver needs to be updated to the "google-usb-driver" in the SDK folder?

    Nope. Just be careful on what you remove.

    Just rooted my TB, and I have to say it was much easier than when I rooted my OG D. I just had to do each step 2 or 3 times, but other than than it was really easy. Now that I have done that, and flashed CWR, I can go in and do my back up the same way I did with my Droid correct? Anyone know if there has been any progress on porting RZR over to the TB?
