I assume if you googled it, you would at least know how to root. As far as dead links well that's a different story...which links were you referring to?

Our epic is the d700. Yours is the d710. Check out there foruma for root. And don't use our files, you'll brick your device.

I am currently running the Note 3 and have been rooting and flashing since the S2 epic 4g touch. I just dusted off my old epic 4g and rooted it with the fc09 stock rooted rom, and activated sprint for my brother. I didn't have any issues until after flashing. When I go into recovery now, nothing will mount, so I am unable to perform any actions in cwm. The stock rooted rom runs fine. I haven't ever had this happen before. Does anyone know of a solution? I even installed a 16 GB SD card that I had from my S2, and still get the errors in cwm.
