What did you do different cause mine just sits in bootloader mode and the command prompt just says waiting for device.... it's been about 5min now ><

and when my computer recognizes the phone in recovery it makes a weird connextion noise not like the usual one

It's picky about recognizing the USB. My problem was actually fixed by using a different USB port. Try reinstalling the drivers, or using a different USB port, or downloading pdanet and maybe some light threats.

Default How To Videos

I'm not as big as qbking77, and I'm not sure if the mods would be happy with me starting a new thread with my how to videos, and I'm not trying to step on anyones toes. My video shows a completely different root method than qbking does, and it shows you how to unlock the bootloader in the same video.

If it would be better to start my own thread, (mods) please let me know!

Yeah, you could download the recovery.img from Koush's website, or you could use the method I did in my video.

EDIT: Here are the .img's for ALL phones. Pick the one for your phone.
