6. Press the key labeled Fn (lower left corner of the keyboard in landscape, upper left in portrait) and the T key at the same time

Not for those of us unlucky ones (maybe I'm the only one) that the custom recovery will NOT work for. No matter what I try, it wont mount data/recovery, so no backup can be made or flashing a custom rom. Plus I have a new problem. Had to rsd the sbf back and now I can't even gain root on the phone.

I've got the froyo on it. When trying to root, I've used the method that worked for me originally, superoneclick. It just keeps not responding on my windows 7 machine but didn't use to. As for the recovery, I did exactly as laidaxins post but it would give me that above error on the phone. I have tried getting help from laidaxin and winsuk to no avail. I even tried getting ahold of romracer to build a proper recovery since I can donate my flipside for the cause, but haven't gotten a response from him at all.

Use z4root go to 4shared.com and search for it there. Then download and install it. Make sure usb debugging is on and unknown sources is checked. Then run z4root and let it sit. Let me know if that works for you.

Gotta be a member to download.

Edit: found the apk here on xda. Doesn't work. At step acquiring root shell, it just closes out. Upon reboot, no superuser. Wasn't meant to be I guess. It was rooted at one time, but guess it just got tired of being told who the boss is.
