I'm having no luck whatsoever with this. As soon as I get to the stage "6. now install-superboot-window" the phone reboots and hangs on the green android man. Any help would be appreciated.

This is starting to drive me mad too!!

I deleted what was showing on the phone and started again. . . .now it's showing device not found/waiting for device when I double click install superboot.

It's showing on device manager as "handset mass storage USB device". Windows has determined that the driver software is up to date.

This looked so easy to start with!!!!!

Any ideas????:( :(

Well, I finally got mine sorted after tearing out my hair in frustration last night! Thank you to tillaz and anybody else who tried to help.

It's difficult to give advice as it kind of "just worked" in the end for me.

What I did do that may help is download a program called usbdeview, which shows you a list of all the devices that have been connected to your computer via usb ports recently. I disconnected my phone from the usb, opened this program and right clicked on anything to do with my phone (there were about 6 or 7) and clicked uninstall on them all. I then went to control panel - system and maintenance - systme - advanced system settings - hardware - windows update driver settings and then changed it to "ask me each time I connect a device to search for driver updates". I then uninstalled sdk manager, any drivers I had installed and rebooted so I could start again from scratch. This time, instead of downloading the sdk zip to the desktop, I downloaded directly to C:\ as no matter how many times I tried, I couldn't get device manager to find the drivers in the file on the desktop. After doing this, it started installing the drivers on my next attempt - I had to do them for both of the android devices listed in device manager, and then when it moved to the top of device manager under a more specific android listing (can't remember exactly what it comes up as) it still had a yellow exclamation mark so I had to install the drivers one more time for that. Refer to Dadashi's post #71 on page 4 of this thread to help with this, along with tillaz's posts as a general guide.

Also, I don't think you want it to be showing "handset mass storage USB device" - what you want is the 2 android devices to pop up. I think the way I got those was going onto computer, right clicking on what was for me "removable disk E" and selecting eject. Then the two android devices with the yellow exclamation marks should hopefully come up.

Good luck, you'll get there in the end (I didn't think I would!) and let us know if you're still having difficulty.

Getting nowhere fast here!!

I tried the USB deview and deleted things.....didn't seem to make any difference.

It's still waiting for device. . . .in Device Manager it's showing up as "USB Mass Storage Device".....there's 2 of them, and one has a yellow triangle beside it.

I just want to take the orange crud off the phone,and maybe try one of the great sounding custom ROMs - but I guess I have to do this part first somehow :(

OK....I think I'm getting somewhere!!

I uninstalled everything and started again. I've now got to "waiting for device" again.

In device manager under "other devices" I've got "android", with the yellow exclamation mark beside it. It's saying it need a driver.

I've downloaded the drivers but can't get them onto the phone. . . .there is no extra drive showing on "computer". . .before I started again it was showing as a device with removable storage. . .now nothing.

When I click on reinstall drivers through device manager, the check online comes back with nothing found.

I've downloaded the drivers , but when I click on them through the browse my computer option, it says windows could not find driver software for your device.

At least I'm getting closer. . . .has anyone got an idiots guide how to install the driver please???

Thanks in advance,

Steve

Think I've done it!!!

Followed Touchy's advice and took everything off, and then followed Tillaz's guide on how he did it for Vista, and . . .. . .I've now got something called "SUPERUSER" on my phone!!!!

Then installed clockwork I think. It went through the procedure and rebooted itself. . . .should it have another icon for clockwork or not???

Now to try and flash a new ROM !!!!

Brilliant guides and help guys.

no icon for clockwork .it will be a folder on sdcard and have your backup in it. .just reboot to clockwork .or power off and power on with the volume down pressed at the same time .then clockwork should appear.good luck.

Yes!!! I have clockwork as well :)

Just a couple of idiot questions about flashing a ROM......

When I explore my phone with it connected to the PC, I can't see the SD card anywhere, so how do I direst the ROM to the card?

When I do the wipe in clockwork, will this delete the photos on my SD card, and my contacts?

Thanks,

Steve
