However, I am running into a problem when trying to start the root process...
I've tried using uNooter, Auto-Nooter and the Size-Agnostic nooter all with the same outcome. I'm placing the image on the SD card properly, because I can put Kang's ROM on there and install it to the SD card just fine. My issue is that when I follow the instructions on the CyanogenMod Wiki, I get stuck between "Gaining Root Access - Step 5" and "Install a Custom Recovery Image."
I get the driver prompts on the desktop and cancel them as instructed, then the NC just sits there; no boots, no reboots. So I pull the card out as instructed and power it up. There is no "Extras" option in the NC, so I can't go to ROM Manager and install ClockworkMod Recovery and go from there. It seems as if the nooter isn't working as intended, or I missed a step somewhere.
Any help is appreciated, otherwise I'll just continue to run it off the SD card.
