    Well, have never done ANYTHING like this, so i am a super newbie.
    Alright my problem is i cant get the darn thing to root (pre) i have sdk, java, and virtualbox.

    I have read all the other posts and can't get it right!
    First off i am on a laptop- vista 32bit system.
    my main problem is when i type in the "novacom -t open tty://" it says "device not found" i am 100% it is in dev mode and connected, i have put it out and into dev mode just to refresh it and nothing works. i then read more closely and found i can use novaterm, but when i connect to "localhost" it says "failed to connect to novacomd". I do not know what the problem is. If anyone is willing to help it would be greatly appreciated, you can even email me or chat with me on yahoo's email-messenger.

    Did you restart it after putting in dev mode?

    Make sure to choose "Just Charge" option when connecting your phone to your computer.

    I had the same problem, as the posts above say, make sure your in dev mode and just charge. If still nothing, restart you laptop to get novacom to run. I had same problem, rebooted my laptop, and waallaa, iI got it done. Post back if you need more help.
