I can't get past this either despite trying everything on here. If you figure it out, could you post how you got it to work (I'll do the same if I manage it)?

Hi steve had the same problem yesterday, you need to follow this link http://www.multiupload.com/YCYCBHSI40

once you have installed the drivers just follow the guide again only this time it will find your phone. Did mine this way today.

Good luck mate.
