Ok, i'm not a noob but i'm not the best at this stuff either. i have searched
for the past 3 days. Got my DX2 the other day coming from a droid incredible.
Day one of the incredible i had it rooted, then had it S-off not far after.


Day one with the dx, havent done much research. Get the phone, check for
system updates, it says it has an update for 2.3.3. O yay, i don't have to wait
to get gb on here. woohoo. DL it while at work since i shouldn't be playing on
the phone anyway.

Get home. go online to try see what i have to do to
get root so i can get some screen shots going and just all around get it back to
the feel of having control of my phone. see a few ways of root, all of them
saying to sbf back to 2.2. Well damn, wish i hadnt updated. Ok, lets try this
sbf thing.

IDK why, but it won't let me sbf. Ive tried. Several times. No
dice, always says failed.

Lets keep looking. O yay, a one click method
for the ota GB?!?! woohoo!! i try it....try it several times. try it more
times.....WTMFHELL!!???!!!?? i got nothing. i don't know why it wont let me root
it...but it wont. if anyone has any advice, any tips...anything at all, i'm all
ears. i've tried sbf, i've tried the adb commands but for some reason it won't
let me use adb, says java isn't in the path, cant fix it. tried one click,
different variations of one click. i got nothing

build number
4.5.1a-dtn-117-15

if anyone can help me i would greatly GREATLY
APPRECIATE IT

sorry for the long wind
thanks for your time

If you get java isn't on your path you need to add the location of java (c:\ ** something**) to your environment variables if using Windows. So right click my computer choose properties then choose environment variables you'll see a path option choose it then add the location of java to the end and reboot
