Been reading all night so i appreciate your help and patience. I just picked up a charge (coming from thunderbolt - finally gave up) and am trying to root and flash some of the roms here.

I am very familar with adb and tried to root but it hung at gingerbreak. from what i understand in order to root, i need to downgrade my firmware to ed1. i am trying to figure out how to do this on a mac.

i downloaded heimdall which looked to be the right solution, but when i load the package in hemidall i get the following error: firmware.xml is missing from the package.

once i am rooted, do i have to use heimdall/odin or can we download zips to sdcard as with the thuderbolt?

also not finding a clear way to install cwm without odin either.

any help would be greatly appreciated.
