    [*UPDATED*]Everthing root for noobs

    Rooting:
    Thanks to the unrevoked there is a painless root method. This is a guide to help you root with windows or Mac. Sorry Linux users.

    *** BEFORE USE, UNINSTALL "HTC Sync" and "PDA net" ***

    Tutorial:

    1.) Install the file for windows or mac here --> unrevoked3 recovery reflash tool, v3.1

    2.) Right click on the reflash bundle and click extract all.
    2a.) If on mac skip steps 3, 4, 5, and 6 just be sure usb debugging is checked and you are on "charge only" mode
    3.) Once files are extracted, open the html file called "hboot driver"

    4.) Intall the first link given on that page. It says "unrEVOked modified USB driver".
    *****Remember to download this file to an easy to get to location.*****

    5.) Follow the rest of the simple instuctions given on that page to guide you through the installation of the proper drivers.

    6.) After you finish instaling the proper drivers, turn yor phone on (if it was off), connect it to your computer, and turn on USB debugging on your device (for those of you that do not know how to do that, go into settings--> applications--> development--> check the USB debugging option)

    7.) Now that you've done all of the setup for the root, run the file named "reflash"

    8.) Highlight the "reboot" option and press the optical trackpad

    9.) DONE!


    Help:

    Problem: I keep getting a message that says "Communication to device has failed" (or something like that).
    Fix: unplug device, then plug it back in and restart the "reflash" program.

    Problem: The reflash program gets stuck on one task for more than a few minutes.
    Fix: first, make sure you do not have "HTC Sync" installed on your computer. if you have it intalled uninstall it and try the "reflash" program again.

    post any other problems or questions

    This is where i'm at now: http://i30.tinypic.com/14welaq.png

    Can you tell me what i'm doing wrong here? I booted up into HBOOT, plugged in USB and opened Device Manager, but I don't have an "Other devices" section (as seen in window to the right in the picture.)

    Any explanation?

    So now we wait for Froyo to be rooted over for the DInc or did you already get that on yours? Also, can you post a Tethering tutorial??
