maybe the problem is that this phone will not connect in preloader mode. No matter what I do it will not connect if I don't press any buttons. At all. With or without SP flash. I have to use SP and hold down both volume buttons and I'm guessing it connects in Brom mode. That's how I unlocked the bootloader. Maybe that's why I can't root, maybe we can only root in preloader mode. Just a thought. Does anyone have any suggestions or opinions????
