What exactly did you do (all steps chosen) and what happened on phone and pc.

Did you let the ToolKit set up Superuser or try to install it seperately?

Did you read and follow all the steps in the ToolKit (installing drivers, enabling usb debugging)?

There is no procedure to reset the flash counter for the Snapdragon variant yet. I very much doubt that Triangle Away will work as you need to a special flash kernel to modify the correct partition and this hasnt been done.

I dont know if Chainfire is planning on adding support for the US variants but im sure something will come along soon enough.

1. Select Tmobile version
2. Install drivers
3. Rooting options
4. Flash CWM + Install Root via recovery
5. Opened ODIN
6. Passed ODIN
7. Booted into recovery/cwm
8. Flash superuser
9. cwm said superuser is installed
10. Reboot phone
11. No superuser
12. Repeated steps above twice

Did I do anything wrong? This is the first phone I'm having trouble rooting

You can see Team Epic's Changelog *HERE*.

It could be that it's just skipping the .android_secure portion of the restore. Have you tried rebooting after your "failed restore"?

Yes i did and your correct. It did make a backup. It just threw me off the fact that it said "failed to restore". All is good now.

Half way there, used it to flash CWM and make a NANDROID backup prior to rooting. Wanted to have a clean non-rooted backup, prior to rooting and tweaking... Thanks for your tool, as soon as I finish moving the backup over to my PC, I will try out the rooting function Nice work!
