Looking for Help Rooting the slide

3 posts in this topic

Hi Paul,

I was wondering if you could give some Pointers on Rooting the Slide? Me & wesgarner have tried almost every exploit we can think of regarding the Slide!

But, being you are the only one I know of that Has Rooted the Desire / Legend & given how close the Slide is, I was hoping you could point us in the Right Direction..

Thanks,

~Eugene
