So: has anybody had the same problem, with their Charge stubbornly refusing to connect in Download mode? Where did you find the drivers that worked? Links would be highly appreciated, as I spent about two hours searching both the forums and the interwebs to no good use yesterday. (Yes, I do understand basic forum etiquette and I really have searched, but can't find any drivers that fix the problem for me.)
Thanks in advance!
I'm having a problem getting my new Charge to connect to my computer in Download mode. It hooks in just fine when the phone is powered up, but of course I can't use ODIN and root my phone without it... and an unrootable phone is pretty much cause for return to sender, as far as I'm concerned. I've searched the forums and downloaded the same drivers at least four times (and several other sets that were probably the same ones), and every time, I get the same problem: no driver found for the "Gadget Serial" device that the computer detects. I heard ODIN was finicky (though that's not where the problem is, since Windows doesn't know what to do with the hardware), so I switched USB ports, and USB cables... no love.
