    T-Mobile G2 Rooted, well kinda!

    We knew it wouldn't be long, but here it is!

    OP: hendusoone on XDA-Developers.com

    On PC:
    adb push rageagainstthecage-arm5.bin /data/local/tmp
    adb shell
    cd /data/local/tmp
    chmod 0755 rageagainstthecage-arm5.bin
    exit

    On G2:
    Open terminal emulator
    cd /data/local/tmp
    ./rageagainstthecage-arm5.bin
    Wait a bit for it to say "Forked #### childs." Then hit enter. Should have a $ prompt.
    Try running "ps" - should say Cannot fork.
    Exit terminal emulator with back button, launch an app (I launched Twidroid, probably doesn't matter which app you pick)
    Launch Terminal Emulator again - it will force close, hit Force Close
    Launch Terminal Emulator a second time and you have a root shell

    Additional info from gariak, from here:
    Originally Posted by gariak adb push Superuser.apk /sdcard/Superuser.apk

    adb push busybox /sdcard/busybox

    [...snip...]

    (I've created a script that does the following)

    # /data/local/tmp/busybox killall rageagainstthecage-arm5.bin
    # mount -o rw,remount -t ext3 /dev/block/mmcblk0p25 /system
    # /data/local/tmp/busybox cp /sdcard/Superuser.apk /system/app/Superuser.apk
    # /data/local/tmp/busybox cp /sdcard/su /system/bin/su
    # /data/local/tmp/busybox cp /sdcard/busybox /system/bin/busybox
    # chmod 4755 /system/bin/su
    # chmod 4755 /system/bin/busybox
    # mount -o ro,remount -t ext3 /dev/block/mmcblk0p25 /system

    After this, I can run su in the adb shell and get root via adb.
    Follow the original thread here: xda-developers

    Looks like Paul's Visionary app will be updated tomorrow to include auto permroot!
