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

How-TO Root the Slide



First things First... Power Off the Slide

Download This Package > Slide Root.zip

Step 1.
Place the Contents of the File's into the SDK Directory

Step 2.
Open Command Prompt and CD to the SDK/Tools Directory.

Step 3.
Type Loop in Command Prompt

Step 4.
Power on the Slide By Holding Down ( Volume Down + Power Button )

Step 5.
Select Recovery From the Menu Chose once Loaded

Step 6.
Once Recovery Loads, You should Have an Offline Device ( ctrl+c ) to See.
If Not, Power Off and Try again..

Step 7.
Un-plug USB & Plug back in for it to Detect ADB Correctly!!! Important..

Step 8.
Select Update.zip ( This will fail, but we already know that! ).

Step 9.
adb push ota.zip /sdcard/update.zip

Step 10.
Very important!! Have this Command Ready in Command Prompt before hitting Update again!!
adb push update.zip /sdcard

step 11.
Hit Update, Once you see a Little Bar appear push Enter on prompt you push the above File ( adb push update.zip /sdcard )

Step 12.

Go to Partitions menu and Mount system

step 14.

Step 16.

That's it, you now Have Root... I'll clean this up a bit, But it's the same Root method as the HTC Incredible... I Just added Su & fix the Script, Plus figuring out how-to get it to write to system to Paul O'Brien:
Koushik K. Dutta: already made Recovery Update..
