    Hey guys, this is my first post. I've had a droid inc for a few weeks now and I am finally going to root it, however I'm running into some problems. I am using Unrevoked 3 one click root. When I go to install the drivers the instructions say to "select the Android USB Driver folder on your computer" when no such file exists on my computer. I tried selecting the hbbot driver files in the unrevoked folder i created and that doesn't seem to work either. I'm a pretty tech savvy guy but all this rooting stuff is brand new to me so I'm sorry if I'm describing it wrong. Can anyone offer some help here? I would be eternally grateful!

    Make sure you have the phone plugged in and are at the Hboot screen.

    warning* i'm new to all of this

    how i rooted dinc, for windows os(very easy for noobs)

    1) download this: unrevoked3 recovery reflash tool, v3.1
    2) unzip, and open folder
    3) double click explorer link named: hboot driver
    4) follow noob-friendly instructions (note: the step-Click on Browse and select the Android USB Driver folder on on your computer, click ok, then click next...the file YOU want to browse for is named: hboot driver_files(comes with your unrevoked download)
    5) after you followed all the intructions for hboot drivers, reboot your phone, set your phone to (mount as charge only)
    6)go to: settings, applications, development, and check usb debigging
    7) on your computer in your folder where you downloaded unrevoked, double click reflash...the root/reflash window will pop up with progress messages at the bottom of it (check bottom of post for possible problem with this step)
    8) it should go through a series of messages and auto reboot your phone
    9) now your rooted, but NOT DONE YET, you still have to create a nandriod backup
    10) turn off phone, then hold power button, and volume down, you'll get the white screen
    11) use (volume down) button to select (recovery), press power button to enter clockwork recovery
    12) scroll down using (volume down) till u get to nandroid), press trac ball to select, and it will back up your phone so that if u ever want to go back to "stock" u will have it
    13) when done go to reboot phone and select and ur done

    the only problem i ever ran into - if the program hangs with the message (waiting for device. plug phone in now and enable usb debugging), exit out of reflash, turn off debugging, unplug usb coord from phone, plug coord back in and start from step 5 again...i dropped my first phone and broke it so i've used this method 2 times now and both times i seemed to get the same problem, wheni would reboot my phone after installing the hboot drivers i wouldn't get the pop up on my phone asking how i want to mount my device to my computer, and the reflash would hang on the (waiting for device) message, but other then that i've had absolutly no problems doing it this way

    ....for the record I'M A COMPLETE NOOB WHEN IT COMES TO THIS KIND OF THING, i just wanted to post my version of rooting for dinc specifically directed towards other noobs, only because i feel like most people that make the root guides assume that people doing this have a certian knowledge about "tech-stuff" or are confident in what their doing...so i just wanted to post this for anyone like me

    ....ohh and all the tech-savey people that are going to read this plz feel free to tear this post a new one if I am misleading anyone into fkin up their phone, i just wanted to post the way i did it
