Honestly loading drivers is part of the tutorial and so many people skip that part which makes little sense to me. Not saying thats the OP's issue but I see so many problems posted about rooting and usually or rather always user error. We got to do better in understanding and following the directions of an OP. Now I will say this I did have one machine not recognize the phone drivers no matter what we did so we had to use another machine. About the only error I have seen.

Hey I have helped quite a few OTA with rooting if anyone needs a hand just PM me...

Also I know they say to re-download the drivers and the revolutionary zip file if it fails the first time but I have used the same zip different machines and root without an issue.... Incase any one was wondering.

The main issue ran into on this issue is user will download the android SDK, htc sync, and other units root exploit.

There's the issue.

ADB.exe is running multiable processes.

If Adb is running more than 1 time. You will need to right click the task bar and pull up you task manager.

If adb IS running more than once, close all of the adb.exe processes excrpt one.

Once done, revolutionary should continue as normal.

Or kill all adb.exes BEFORE running it.

Hope this helps
