Before I reboot, I have a root terminal. Once I reboot, it is a regular terminal. When I type su and ht enter, it just shows me a new line with a $ again. There are no error messages.
The output from the terminal; I get is
-rswr-sr-x root root 0 2010-08-29 17:59 su.
And I appreciate the help. If the questions help, then ask away.
What method did you use, what terminal, do you have Superuser, and is the terminal emulator in the Apps list
I used amingv's method, with the same terminal he used. And I have the superuser app.
When you plug your phone to push the files, make sure you pick "Charge Only" and not "USB Drive" when prompted, I like music A LOT so I want you to open your music app too and play me your favorite tune at full volume while you root. Do it before you start pushing the files, even. I'm serious. Not only will this song entertain me heaps, but if it stops suddenly at any moment and doesn't continue playing on it's own you'll also know something is going wrong and that your phone will not likely be able to read from or write to the sdcard.
As always, report back with any issues
I tried sending all the files again, but it seems like it's not sending them because they're already there. Is there a way to delete the old su file from the phone so I can send the new one?
Okay. I have redone everything, and now when I try to run su on the terminal emulator, it seems to try for a few seconds, then says Permission denied.
HOLY CRAP my overclock widget just asked for superuser permissions! I think it worked!
