try sticking a post in the new HUKD moby site mobot.net

are you sure your recovery file/fastboot files are in C;/user/josh/desktop?

Also make sure you phone is recognised by your pc when you plug it in- download the drivers from here android.modaco.com/cat…om/ if not...

What am I doing wrong :S. By the way this is my first ever android phone.

I did this last week but I put the fastboot folder directly in my C:/ folder. See if you can get the alternative drivers from here:
flibblesan.co.uk/and…zip

Finally go to the MoDaCo site and get the newer 2.5.1.8 clockwork orange from here:

When I put my phone in android phone (volume up and power held) and then I put it through USB my laptop gives me a sound showing it me it has been recognised but nothing else happens :S.

By the way is it safe to take the battery out when in this mode, because there is no other way of turning it off.

Have a look at this site orangesanfrancisco.co.uk it tells you have to install clockwork recovery without using computer and fastboot.

Oh right an easier way finally lol. I thought fastboot was the only good way of doing it properly. Thankyou I will definately try this tomorrow morning. but im gonna go to bed now since I have being trying to root my phone for a good 6 hours

Thankyou for your help

Just wondering still if if taking the battery out when on android mode (volume up, power help) will do anything bad to my phone, because I have done it about 4-5 times because it was the only way to turn the phone off.
