It worked great! I had to tell my "NoScript" plugin to accept the AlphaRev page before I could enter my device serial number.

The actual process was very easy and took less than a minute.

I zeroed out my device serial number and beta key.

    I get stuck at aquiring root (method 2) step - I have waited over 30 mins on multiple ocassions NO Joy still S ON

    what do u mean by had wrong Hboot drivers and what did you do to fix this?

    try to disable any antivirus protection.... to get hboot drivers installed you need to start up your mobile volume down + power.... then put the usb connection in and see if it works. If it doesnt you need to update your hboot drivers...i used unrevoked's drivers: http://unrevoked.com/rootwiki/lib/e...unrevoked.com/recovery/android-usb-driver.zip

    worked for me :)
