The whole thing falls apart around the time I try and flash ESPRIMG.zip. I get into bootloader and it just skips right on by ESPRIMG.zip with "no image found" and of course when flashing update.zip from the memory card in recovery it fails the signature and refuses to flash. I cannot get into clockwork for the life of me.

Then you don't have the file ESPRIMG.zip on the root of your sdcard.

I've tried every root method for the slide and most of them worked but not without problems, this Root method is exactly down to the T, perfectly executed, no problems whatsoever. Thanks for everyone who helped make this happen and for the OP you made this super easy.

Did this on my first attempt, I was coming from stock with the OTA update and had no issues. Great job to everyone involved!

Exclamation Video of the root...
Can someone please post a video of the rooting process? I'm deathly scared that I'm gonna mess something up and break my new phone. This is my first android phone and my first time rooting one. And in the video could you show how to get the Android SDK and how to get it ready to root? It would be soooo appreciated.

Perhaps you can try this guide which was written by a n00b, for n00bs. It consolidates a lot of details together and doesn't assume you already know about Android tools and hacking.

Your phone is not being recognized in adb mode. First try starting phone normally and go under settings to applications to development then check mark usb debugging pluf in device and give the pc a min

In c:/root run this
Adb devices

Should see device listed beneath. If not sounds like a driver is messed up. If this is the case I would first try and install pdanet on the computer as this should get us the right drivers. I assume you are running windows right?
