Noob here to sprint and the whole android phone experience. Im still within the 30 day trial period so ive been basically toying with the phone all day for the last couple of days. I got it to where i can tether using PDaNet and the USB cable but its extremely slow so what im loooking to do with it unlock the wifi feature. Ive been at it all day and this is what ive done so far.
I tried rooting the phone using SimpleRoot 1.47.651.1 and went through it all but wasnt not able to get the wifi tethering to work. So i unrooted the phone using the steps on another site and everything worked fine also went through the downloads to have the most current OTC installed. I then did some more reading and was thinking about trying the steps on "IDIOT-PROOF Root Guide! NAND Unlock and ADB Update!!" found on this site but when i opened the phones SD card i noticed that it already has a PC36IMG file in it, is this the same one i need to root it or was this installed from when used the SimpleRoot program? Im not looking to do too much with the phone as far as rooting my main thing is wanting to unlock the wifi tethering then after that if i decide to keep the phone ill see about venturing further. Ive been at this all day and its getting on my last nerve any help would be greatly appreciated, Im on yahoo msngr as well LS954, thanks!
