Is this tied into your other thread about you thinking you bricked your wife's phone?
Are you following one of the HOW TO ROOT SAMSUNG MOMENT on this site or are you following it from a different site?

We need you to be much more specific to be able to help you. What are you flashing, how are you doing it, if you are following a tutorial is it from here or another site, do you get any errors when flashing, etc?

The more detail you give us, the better we are going to be able to help you.

If you have a Hero you need to go to the Hero upgrade section.

Technically speaking you are a noob because this is the first Samsung Moment phone you've worked on :)

I am guessing you're still having problems with this phone? If so, I have a few things for you to try...
  • Take out the battery for 20 second and put it back in
  • Do a factory reset on your phone (Vol Down + Camera + End) rest to factory
  • Reboot the phone and check to see if the phone is CL14 Cupcake
  • On your computer, remove ANYTHING related to Samsung
  • Including ALL Samsung drivers and espeically PC Studio
  • Remove Sprint Utility, after everything has been removed reboot computer
  • Install Sprint Utility only, reboot if required
  • Start the rooting process
  • If your phone isn't recognized, go to C:\Program Files\Samsung Electronics\SWUpgrade\Driver run Samsung_Mobile_USB_Driver(V5.2.0.0)_V1.2.1060.0.ms i, you might have to reboot the computer (NOTE: I'm using Windows 7, I right clicked the MSI went to PROPERTIES clicked on COMPATIBILITY tab and chose to run compatibility to previous version of Windows, this might not be required)
  • Re-restart the rooting process, making sure to follow each step the Sprint Utility prompts you to do, no shortcutting!

After all this mini-how to is done, hopefully you will have your phone rooted!

I'm not having any more problems. I've rooted and flashed joeys kernel, and I think but not sure if his cl14 update came with a custom Rom. But what is the best performance Rom for the moment?

Re: 3rd time flashing..Settings not showing new kernel..Help!!
 
currently there are no custom roms for the Moment
I have only used two kernels, Zefie's and SpeedRabbit, I am on day two of using SpeedRabbits kernel so I don't have enough info to report about that kernel. Zefies if stable, fast and good battery management...
