According to reports, the myTouch 3G Slide phone has now been completely rooted by hacker eugene373. If you have the myTouch 3G Slide but wanted to be able to have access to a host of features, look no further as all that is required is for you to be able to root your device. However, this process is not for the faint hearted as it can be a bit complex to handle, unless you follow the instructions well. In order to be able to root the myTouch 3G Slide , the most important thing you need to do is to make sure that you download the Slide Root file that should then be placed in the SDK directory. To do this, use command prompt and point it to the SDK/Tool Directory after which you should hold down the power button and the volume down button so as to power on the myTouch 3G Slide.
From command prompt type in ‘Loop’ and once you are given the menu choice, select ‘recovery’. Once the device has finished loading, there will be an additional icon ‘Offline Device’. Next what you have to do is to remove the USB attachment cable for the Slide and reattach it once again. Do not ignore this step as it is very important!! Finally choose ‘Update.zip’ and you should get a message saying that it has failed. Next push slideroot.zip by making use of the Android Debug Bridge and before you can press update, key in ‘command ready’ in command prompt. Next hit update and once you do so, you should be capable of pushing the file completely over. Once you have been successful in pushing the update.zip over, you should now be looking at ClockworkMod recovery. Using your keys navigate to the partitions menu so that you will be able to mount the system back again. To finish the rooting of the myTouch 3G Slide, simply hit the ‘back’ button to then choose the root zip file.
Once you have rebooted your unlocked smartphone, you will be able to do whatever you want.
