    Can't unlock or root

    I'm looking for a lot of help. Wug was helping for awhile but lost him. Does anyone know of anyone working on a different approach. I thought my best shot was with Wug. I didn't know I had to install anything but the App and Drivers and follow the directions. It didn't happen. It kept asking if I has adb installed. I need someone to led me step by step. Old age has hit me right between the eyes (64) but I keep trying. Anyone willing to help?

    I fought for two hours last night getting adb set right. There are two different drivers you need installed. One for the phone when booted... one for fast boot. I'm wondering if that's the issue. I did mine the old fashioned way. Adb ftw. And now the fast boot adb is working for me. I'm better off hehe

    Same deal for me, Pure. Took me the better part of a day to get the drivers set up properly and unlock the bootloader. Once that was done, everything else was cake.

    I'd rather have more detail as to what to do in the steps than just click this and then that and you're all done when there are things to be done from one end to the other.

    There is a guide I used, It recommended using installing PDANet and letting it install the drivers for you, worked great. I'll find the link and post it for you. I had mine done in all of an hour

    I promise its a driver issue. Probably a very simple step that needs to be done.
