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 all,

This is my first android phone.......by following this excellent guide I've downloaded the "install-superboot-windows" to my phone. (well it's showing in the contents list of Removable Disc(D) ).

But I'm stuck on the 3rd stage of installing clockwork. . . got the device not found / waiting for device message.

Can anyone help me. . .. I'm stretching my computer skills getting this far so help in simple language would be great!!!:D

Thanks in advance,

Steve
