    I must first say thank you greatly for helpin me. I now wrote a double line for busybox to install and added some wait lines to hopefully let it catch up. I've also put one together without the fix permissions lines. I will add these to my original post shortly if you felt like givin it another go. Also was curious if you could post what the terminal says during the processes that aren't working. Glad to hear no problems rooting and flashing recovery though. Oh and just curious what version of windows did you use? I also seem to not be able to figure hang issue as it seems to be in the zergrush program itself Sorry. And again thank you :-)

    Just wondering has anyone else tried this yet and what were the results?

    terminal moves super fast, but i caught this error right away
    "*sh no such file or directory"
    otherwise it looks like this one pushed busybox, and did file permission fix. started with a stock (not factory reset) device again.
    i checked and busybox is installed. and it took forever to fix permissions. one thing i did notice is it did not pop on 3g right away. looking into it.

    it did not hang the first time and everything went through fine! did not track down the 3g issue but the phone is in 'suspended' status with cricket.

    Strange error considering it requires the sh or shell file to preform most of the commands I wrote in the batch file but sounds like it worked still. Not sure on the 3G issue but I have noticed this phone takin a minute sometimes when it first boots. Please keep me posted hopefully we can get this goin smoothly.

    Just curious does anyone have a stock (I mean bone stock no root) system.img and boot.img for this phone? Oh and I could use a working stock recovery.img as the one in these forums is not there anymore it appears and the one that was did not work.
    Thanks for any help :-)

    Ok just to clarify the second version with the extra lines worked fine and the 3G issue is a cricket issue? Just wanted to make sure before moving on to another project :-) Thank you very very much for all your help too

    @stedman420 help bro! When I attempt to run "ZergRootTempRush.bat" it will either stop at "wait for device" or "daemon started succesfully" and once again the bootloop is still there. I am really at a loss on what to do, help ASAP please.

    I have posted some more info on your android forums post also making sure your pc doesn't have your sdcard mounted as external storage helps and then try running zerg while your phone is off then powering on when you get the wait for device. Zerg should kick in just after the bootanimation starts

    Sorry I tried the only other thing I can think of is to use manually enter the adb commands involving the recovery in the batch file usin cmd.exe if you get the custom recovery installed everything will be easy from there. If you don't know how to use adb though it will require some research. And just outta curiosity what was removed before this problem occurred as I'm sure this info can be helpful for others.

    Note to others: This is why flashing the custom recovery and making a backup should be the first thing you do after rooting. Do not try making changes before making a backup and definitely no changes should be made before installing custom recovery this is the exact reason why I modified this zerg rush so that less people had this issue so please use this zerg or at least make sure you have the custom recovery installed before removing anything from your rooted phone.

    So bro, I got a new Score today. Rooted it. Now before I start toogling with it, I want to have you know the flash, recovery, all that good stuff. Could you please break it down one more time for me. I've tried getting CWM via Rom Manager, didn't do. Uhhh, 4ext can't find device either. So if you could help me just one more time. That'd do wonders.
