Hello all. I'm having the worst time rooting this phone. I have windows XP. I've tried the one click method and tried thru the command prompts. So anyone have any ideas how to do this on XP?

So I'm assuming you're having a driver problem... is the phone recognized properly when you plug it into the computer?

Have you tried using the GNex Toolkit yet?

I used this on my replacement device with no problems. Unless this was the one-click method you were using before

Use the gnex toolkit and follow the instructions carefully. It is the easiest way in my opinion.

Is your phone still being recognized when you go in to fast boot? I was having driver problems last night and it would recognize when the phone was powered on but not on fast boot. Somebody suggested downloading PDAnet and it fixed my issues
