    Lightbulb (UPDATED) T-Mobile myTouch 3G Slide Rooted!

    This was not created by me credit goes to eugene373 (along with help from a lot of other members over @ XDA who posted the first comprehensive guide to successfully root the Slide. Based on that of the HTC Incredible, the rooting process should be easy as long as you follow the guide to the letter...



    here is a video tutorial also:

    How-TO Root the Slide

    First!! - Go to Settings > Application > Development and turn on USB Debugging. This should save you headaches.

    NOW… Power Off the Slide

    Step 0.
    Un-zip the Package you Downloaded

    Step 1.
    Place the Contents of "update.zip" & "ota.zip" & "loop" into your Android SDK Tools folder.

    Step 2.
    Open Command Prompt or Terminal and CD to the SDK/Tools Directory.

    Step 3.
    Power on the Slide into the bootloader by Holding Down ( Volume Down + Power Button )

    Step 4.
    Now run your loop file from the prompt (either type "loop" in windows or "./loop.sh" in a *nix like) ( ./ Is used For OSX )

    Step 5.
    Once your loop is running in your prompt, select Recovery from the bootloader menu.

    Step 6.
    When recovery loads, you should Have an Offline Device. You can use ctrl+c to stop your script & see.
    If this doesn't happen, Power Off and try again..

    Step 7.
    Un-plug your USB cable from the back of your phone & Plug it back in for it to Detect ADB Correctly!!! This is an important step. At this point you can adb devices to see if you can see your device and that it is in recovery mode.

    Step 8.
    Hit Volume Up + Power button to Bring up the Selectable Menu
    Select Update.zip from the menu. (This will fail, but we already know that! Select it anyway).

    Step 9.
    adb push ota.zip /sdcard/update.zip (*OSX users add a ./ in front of all terminal commands please.)


    Step 11.
    This is Very important!! Have this Command ready in your prompt before applying update.zip again!!

    This is the Command, We do not Push this Yet adb push update.zip /sdcard

    step 12.
    Hit run update.zip, as soon as you see a Little Bar appear under the text, push Enter to execute the command in your prompt (adb push update.zip /sdcard )

    Step 13.
    In successful, you should see Clockwork Recovery & you Now have Su & Superuser.apk Installed! You can Now Reboot Your Phone into the OS to verify.
    If unsuccessful, repeat steps 11 & 12.

    Congrats.

    Big thanks to Eugene_373 for doing all the legwork on this & for kingofyo1 for the helpful video.

    That's it, you now Have Root... I'll clean this up a bit, But it's the same Root method as the HTC Incredible... I Just added Su & fix the Script, Plus figuring out how-to get it to write to system to Paul O'Brien:
    Koushik K. Dutta: already made Recovery Update..



    Special Thanks to:
