Somewhere in these threads and I don't exactly know where someone was missing those same files. Someone posted a link to them. Try to do a search on "drivers.zip" and maybe you can locate the post.

Thumbs up Finally Rooted my DS7
I wish to thank EwanG for making this so simple to accomplish. I had been holding off in doing it and finally got down to doing it. I can't seem to find the "Thanks" button on the forum, so again, thanks EwanG.

Edit: Found the button!

Unhappy Bootloader error
[/QUOTE]
Steps 1-15)

16) To get it to reboot into CWM, turn the Streak off, and then turn it on again while holding the Power Button and Volume UP (+) at the same time. This may take up to 30 seconds

From here you would follow the normal CWM options to install just the root files (Superuser7 for one example) or install a custom ROM.[/QUOTE]



I have followed these instructions, from step one. I have tried it twice, but when I reboot to go into CWM it gives a stock recovey and when I try option #2 it gives the following error " Unrecoverable Bootloader error (0x00000000). "
What did I do wrong?

I have A Dell Streak 7 with OTA Honeycomb.

Hey All.
I have a Stock 7 with Honeycomb, and have followed the above. When I boot with the + down the menu shows no change, though during the attempt at installing clockwork it looks like it came up with no issues.
Is anyone able to shone some light on the issue?
(Dos output below)
C:\StreakRoot\Win32>fastboot -i 0x413C flash recovery C:\StreakRoot\S7_3.2-6.0.1
.1.img
sending 'recovery' (4732 KB)...
OKAY [ 0.408s]
writing 'recovery'...
OKAY [ 1.316s]
finished. total time: 1.726s
C:\StreakRoot\Win32>fastboot -i 0x413C reboot
rebooting...
finished. total time: 0.001s
C:\StreakRoot\Win32>

You need to select now the update package option and that will take you to recovery mode

question about rooting problem
Greetings to all.

I have tried the instructions. I have actually run through the process 4 times now, from step one.

I get the same error each time. When I try to boot into recovery. It appears to still be the stock recovery, when I select option #2 it gives a bootloader error message.

Has anyone else had this issue?

Any of you gurus have a suggestion?

I will try anything at this point to get cwm working and root.

did you put the device into fastboot and flash recovery? if no, do it. if yes did you rename your recovery image to "recovery.img" minus the quotation marks and use "fastboot flash recovery recovery.img" through the fastboot command?
