by any chance you know why Superoneclick will not find my device? Ive tried the steps listed below the download page for superoneclick and it still doesnt work...
I'm an idiot, just figured out what I did wrong :/
I'll go ahead and post the solution I found when it was stuck at "waiting for device" when trying to root mine. I had not installed the drivers on my PC for my Motorola A855. As soon as I got the drivers installed, it rooted quickly and easily! I hope that helps someone else searching. There are a ton of "waiting for device" complaints in certain threads, and rarely is it recommended to make sure the drivers are installed!
