    So I've rooted my phone both manually & with z4root. Change roms like I change socks. Today a friend was wanting to use the wireless tether app, & wanted me to get it working. Well I installed z4root, enabled debugging & all that cool stuff & hit permanent root on her phone.

    Well it did the spinny wheel thing for about 20mins & froze up. Did a battery pull, reinstalled the app & tried again... same thing. At that point we had class so I couldn't try anything else.

    Any ideas?

    Note: She's running the latest OTA, virgin phone.

    Try temp root first then go back and do permanent.

    I've had Z4root version 1.30 fail at rooting (would take so long I'd just give up), but every time I try Z4root version 1.0 it does the job just fine.

    So if you're trying Z4root 1.30 I'd try version 1.0.

    Out of the 6 phones I have rooted so far, only 2 of them have "hung" while using z4root. 1 took 3 battery pulls before rooting was applied, while the other only took a reboot, no battery pull.

    All 6 were done using the version of z4root I have linked in my signature from Megaupload...v1.3.0
