I am an admitted n00b, but I am fairly adept at using a computer.
Anyway, I want to root my phone, and have tried the manual process as well as the one click process, using both my 64 bit Windows 7 PC and my Mac.
Every time I try to apply update.zip, I get an error (code 7).
It seems pretty straightforward, but for some reason, it won't take.
The phone is an I9000M (2.1-update1) Eclair UGJH2 on Bell Canada.
Edit: I googled and found aonther Bell user that had the same problem. He posted that he was able to root it with RyanZA's OCLF 2.0 app from the market. I downloaded it and it worked perfectly. Not sure what the difference is, but it is now rooted.
