    Sorry if this has been asked, I've read many threads tonight and don't remember it being asked..

    I wonder if that screwed up anything. I usually pick USB Drive. Actually, most the the time I don't press anything, which is probably the same as the Charge Only mode. So I should be good.

    To make the backup open adb shell, type su and run this command:

    The phone will restart into recovery mode and you'll get a menu. You can use volume up/down to navigate, the power button to select an item and the camera button to go back.

    To make a backup select the "Backup/Restore" option on the menu, select "Nand backup" on the next menu and hit the power button to confirm. Once the backup completes, hit the camera button to go back to the main menu and select "Reboot system now", the phone will boot normally.

    Your backup will be located in a folder called "nandroid" on your sd card. Copy it to your computer or to other secure location.
    As for the reboot recovery, it brings me to a screen with a yellow ! inside a white triangle with a phone sitting next to it. Can't do anything from here.

    The terminal emulator runs as the "system" user, which has no write access to tmp. Try running that command from within adb shell, which runs as the "shell" user and has appropriate permissions.

    This means you didn't install the j_r0dd-mb300-v1.7.4.1.img file correctly. Make sure the file is on your sd card and try running "flash_image recovery /sdcard/j_r0dd-mb300-v1.7.4.1.img" again .

    Well I would like to backup my phone first with nandroid, so I didn't do that part yet. Do I need to do that before I can run a backup?

    Yup. At least as far as nandroid is concerned.

    I did end up doing that, and it worked, but I couldn't get the ootc.sh to push. Just said adb: permission denied.

    I did run the rageagainst, got the forked childs, and got the # sign, but can't do the very last step because I couldn't get ootc.sh over. Any ideas?

    EDIT: I also tried switching back and running " /data/local/tmp/install-root.sh", as well as the longer version.

    Huh? From the install-root.sh I guessed you were following the guide on m3.

    In any case, you can do this: close the terminal and plug the phone to your pc. When prompted use the usb drive mode.
    Copy the ootc.sh file to the sd card via the removable drive under "My Computer" (on windows).
    Unplug/safety-remove/whatever your phone, wait for the sd card to be remounted on the phone and open the terminal again (the prompt should still be a #).
    Run these on the terminal emulator:
    Code:
    cd /sdcard
    sh ootc.sh
    That should let you complete the process without further issues.

    Just wanted to thank you guys. I had a jail broken iphone 3G for awhile and switched to the Backflip for the Android experience back in May. Needless to say I wanted a rooted android and was a little pissed cause this one wasn't (my bad for not checking). I lurked here for months until today and now it's paid off!

    After following the instructions (kinda.... I have *nix experience so I did it my way) I got this thing rooted and couldn't be happier!

    Thanx to all!

    Sorry I wasn't clear, I'm tired.

    I've been mixing and matching the two methods to weave my way around all the permissions denied thrown my way.

    Maybe I'm just really stupid tonight, I just get "sh: Can't open ootc.sh"

    EDIT: Nvm, needed to unmount the sd card first. :D
