    I've been trying different root methods for a while now and I just can't seem to get it. Is anyone out there in or near Houston, TX that could help me?

    I have not, but I would love to. Do you have to have root first?

    Wait, isn't RSD a motorola tool?

    Yes it is. Best way to root is follow this guide: http://www.droidforums.net/forum/hacking-faqs/39254-sbf-root-unroot.html

    Edit: Oops you have an Incredible sorry. I read next to your name and it said you have a Moto Droid, I didn't notice I was in the Incredible section.

    I'm using the SD card that came with it.

    sorry about the wrong label, I didn't update it after I switched it.

    No you dont. The way that worked for me was to click the SD card in and out repeatedly while its boting into recovery. I couldnt get it for almost 3 days of trying the other way, but clicking it in and out worked first try for me :)

    I've tried popping it in and out and didn't have any luck. I've also tried watching for the screen blink and disconnect sound. I don't know if it helps, but I can access adb shell in command prompt via USB debugging. I don't know if that matters, but at least that should mean it's no longer a driver problem right?
