    I just want to point out that most of us "don't root for root sake". We root because we get something of value in return.

    Like:
    Better battery life or better performance (SetCPU)
    Better user interface (trackball notification improvements, battery percent indication, many widgets no longer needed, etc. etc.)
    Better application management (Titanium Backup)
    Better memory usage (about 20MB more application space)
    Better default browser (auto re-flow paragraphs on pinch zoom)

    So many more that I can't remember right now......

    Cool You ROCK!!!

    @ BeerGoggles Thank you so very much my Old Friend & Compadre


    I did not mean it in a general sense.... I agree Rooting opens up another level of functionality in our phones....

    It's just that I'm going ape s**t just using the stock froyo!

    While unrooted, i am under the constant guidance and advice of old friends like you and @ SliceBurgSlim (now a Moderator!) and LEARNING ALL THE TIME


    In addition - I would like to get the Gingerbread stock update in a Kosher OTA ....

    Like you may already be aware custom ROM users had trouble updating the gmail app recently...

    and i like the blind simplicity of remaining unrooted (right now & till i master it & get bored)

    I AM STILL WOWED by THE AWESOMENESS OF THE <stock froyo> N1 EVERYDAY!

    Here's to all of my friends (both rooted & unrooted)

    ** Instructions for Windows:
    ** Type commands into the cmd prompt. ** are just comments about what each command is doing.
    ** Just double click cmd.bat and it should open a command prompt in the right directory...


    ** Confirm you have connection, when phone is booted with USB debugging enabled
    ** To enable USB debugging from the phone use Menu> Settings> Applications> Development
    ** The following command will return a device ID if connected correctly
    adb devices


    ** Copy the files to your phone
    adb push rageagainstthecage /data/local/tmp/rageagainstthecage
    adb push Superuser.apk /data/local/tmp/Superuser.apk
    adb push busybox /data/local/tmp/busybox
    adb push su /data/local/tmp/su


    ** Change the permissions on the files
    adb shell
    chmod 700 /data/local/tmp/rageagainstthecage
    chmod 755 /data/local/tmp/busybox


    ** Run the exploit
    cd /data/local/tmp
    ./rageagainstthecage


    ** Check to see if it worked
    adb kill-server
    adb start-server
    adb shell


    ** The $ prompt should change to #
    ** If you still see $, re-run the exploit (above)
    ** You may have to repeat a number of times
    ** If you see #, you now have TEMP root


    ** Mount your phone with read/write (rw) access
    mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock3 /system

    ** Install busybox, and change permissions
    cd /data/local/tmp
    ./busybox cp busybox /system/bin
    chmod 4755 /system/bin/busybox

    ** Use busybox to install the other files and change permissions
    busybox cp Superuser.apk /system/app
    busybox cp su /system/bin
    chmod 4755 /system/bin/su

    ** Mount your phone back to read-only (ro) access
    mount -o remount,ro -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock3 /system


    ** Exit the root shell
    exit
    exit


    ** DONE!

    Danger thank you for your step by step guide, it was idiot (read aseems) proof

    which was duly acknowledged and endorsed by my best friend slice

    Apologies WERA, But YOU MADE DANGER'S thread sticky!

    All the stars on the N1F aligned

    I've now got the Root Gang symbol 1. super user app
    2. Titanium Backup
    3. Rom Manager
    4. Set CPU

    That's what Google gets for being disloyal to its true fans, who bought a $550 device, purely on Trust from a single website originally labeled simply as google.com/phone
