I have tried several different usb cables, different computer ports, I tried flashing the stock ICS zip posted by Romman0, factory reset a few times, toggled usb debugging on and off, changing usb mode from mtp to ptp and back, I even tried to get an adb boot logcat but it just sat there waiting for device.
My question is, does this sound like a hardware fault?
Is there something else I can try to obtain root? Everything else seems to work great, but I really want to root this thing.
Any help is appreciated.
