T-Mobile G2 Rooted, well kinda!
We knew it wouldn't be long, but here it is!
OP: hendusoone on XDA-Developers.com
Follow the original thread here: xda-developers
adb push rageagainstthecage-arm5.bin /data/local/tmp
chmod 0755 rageagainstthecage-arm5.bin
Open terminal emulator
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

# 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.

Man I can't wait until they perfect a method that sticks!
G2 + CyanogenMod is gonna be Ridiculous!
I can't wait till root so i can get rid off of unwanted apps. But I will stay stock
Looks like Paul's Visionary app will be updated tomorrow to include auto permroot!
i hope so im not good with adb and all that stuff lo
