Hello! I've read the one thread I can find on this, but doesn't seem to be a lot of activity there lately.
I wonder whether anyone's still working on this and whether there's been any progress!
Anyone know?
Thanks much

Problem with Explorer
N'ayam Amarsh'e, I'm trying your system. So far, so good - up until the Droid Explorer step.
But Droid Explorer installs, with the SDK tools, ... and then crashes upon running it (can't find the SDK stuff).
I looked at the Droid Explorer site under issues - EVERYONE is now having this problem.
I tried various locations for SDK, ...uninstalling and reinstalling DE, and and even earlier releases of Droid Explorer (from before the problem seemed to have cropped up) - nothing works.
Is there any alternative that will work? Or do you happen to know how to fix this problem (no one on their forums seems to know!)?
Thanks again
PS - I got release 8.7.2.x64 to install AND start, but now it doesn't find the android device. Made sure USB debugging is still connected, and that it's "connected as a media device".
PPS - Droid Explorer's site says everywhere that it's supposed to work for already-rooted devices...

Hi this shouldn't be a problem but I think linux would be the best.... in linux you can use nautilus for exploring files of your device with root privileges... try it... i m going to edit the guide now...

Tried Ubuntu 11.04 as well as a couple of other versions. None of them detect anything with the NEC Terrain in recovery mode.

Other hints are welcome, I too would like to have this phone rooted.

You surely don't have drivers.... Download them again and give it a try...

What drivers are you talking about? There are no "drivers" for Ubuntu per say. The only thing that needs to be done is in /etc/udev/rules.d you have to have the appropriate vendor in there, which I do. With the NEC Terrain booted normally:

$ ./adb devices
List of devices attached
30c17c2 device

then I do

$ ./adb reboot recovery

and wait for the NEC Terrain to get in to recovery mode

$ ./adb devices
List of devices attached

And that's it, no devices listed. The NEC Terrain does not respond in recovery mode. Please don't say I don't have drivers, drivers are for Windows. You said this should be done in Ubuntu via Nautilus. I'm not seeing how that could be the case. Please enlighten.
