Downgrade to RC29

The first step is to downgrade so you can obtain root access.

  1. Download the RC29 NBH file if you are in the US or the RC7 NBH file if you are in the UK.
  2. Place this file on your sd card (it is best if you format the card before this step, if you run into errors try that).
  3. Turn the device power off and make sure your sd card is inserted.
  4. Hold down the camera button while you turn on your phone to enter bootloader.
  5. After it finishes, press the trackball and perform a soft reset by pressing "Call" + "Menu" + "End" to reboot.

Obtain Root

  1. Once your phone boots to the desktop hit the <enter> key twice and then type "telnetd" and press <enter> again.
  2. Download an Android Telnet client, run it and connect to "localhost". If you are unable to connect, try steps 1 and 2 over again until you can.
  3. download busybox (long press this file and choosing save link) to your sd card in the web browser.
  4. Run the following commands to setup busybox
    • mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock3 /system
    • dd if=/sdcard/download/busybox.asc of=/system/bin/busybox
    • chmod 4755 /system/bin/busybox
    • cd /system/bin/
    • busybox cp -s busybox cp
    • busybox sh
