    Same here... I'm working on it. If someone beats me to it, that's fine... in the meantime I'll try to keep you updated on any progress.

    I too am attempting this. I can't seem to find how to get to recovery or fastboot though, so I am pretty well stuck. Can't find recovery from ADB either.

    Has any one had any luck on booting into or finding either recovery of fastboot?

    I haven't heard of anything just yet, I'll do some research tonight and see what I can dig up.

    Some things I have found:
    1. If you hold the green send key and the center key on boot up you get a screen that looks like it would be fastboot but the device doest show in fastboot devices from the SDK. I am also trying it on windows 7 64 bit. Can anyone try it from XP to verify.

    2. Most of the file system is read only, no surprise there. But /data/local is read/write. I put su there and installed Superuser.apk. If I run /data/local/su, the superuser app pops up asking for permission. The problem is the app looks for su in /system/bin. I am looking into building the app from source to tell it to look in /data/local.

    In theory, if I get the app to find su I can then mount the system as read/write and put su where it is supposed to be giving us a true root. But without fastboot or recovery there would be no way to use custom roms.

    Unplug the USB, take out battery and replace. Hold send key and center button (make sure not to press up, down or left right) then while holding those two press pwr.

    should go to the questionable screen within 1-3 seconds?

    Rooting the i1

    I did the combo and got my computer to start communication via the usb but it could not find the driver for "S Blank Zeus driver". Any ideas on this driver or do you think I should go in through my linux machine?

    Thanks,
    Guito
