?
ok, so i have a Pantech Crossover running android 2.2.1 and ive followed all the steps i have, (starting from scratch)
-Turned on the phone
-put it into USB Debugging
-unmounted the Sd card (per Shortfuse instructions)
- installed SDK manager
- changed the directory, and ran adb devices. it showed on the device list.
- i opened superoneclick 2.2 (for it is one of the only ones with Gingerbreak)
-i selected Gingerbreak in the exploit menu
-i clicked root
it stops at step 7 - Waiting for device

ive even went as far as using a different computer (i use Windows 7, so i tried Xp)
i even tried keeping the sd card mounted and it still doesnt work... anything im missing? do pantech phones have a download/update/recovery mode?

whats the external button method???

I did as much research as you can do on it and I believe you hold down the power button until the pantech logo appears and then you immediately hold volume down and the home button until you see the android guy.

Rooting Pantech Crossover - Easiest Way
1. Download & install File Expert from the android market.
2. Go 2 settings, then applications & Enable unknown sources & usb debugging.
3. Download & install Terminal Emulator from the android market.
4. Download & install Gingerbreak.apk using Google.
5. Pun Gingerbreak on the microSD card & install it using File Expert.
6. Open Gingerbreak & click "Root Device"

The phone will restart & is now rooted
Open up the Terminal Emulator, type "su" & hit enter. Choose the allow option to get Superuser Permissions

4 convenience, I uploaded the all apps needed. There is no possible way of this not working & messing up your phone. You don't even need a pc do do this.

How 2 boot into stock recovery
It's very easy, I figured it out myself:
1. Turn off the phone.
2. Press & hold the Volume Down & Home buttons, then press & hold the Power
button. Keep all 3 buttons held until the Android appears.
3. Release the 3 buttons & push the Home button.
4. Use the slideout keyboard 2 navigate.

Done!!!
