Hey guys, I installed "ANDROID2.1_GREEK35T_REV.0.0.41" form the install 2.1 the easy way thread. it worked fine. in the article it said that I would still have root but I don't. I still have the little ninja icon that says "Superuser Permissions" but I cant run Drocap2 and if I adb shell into the phone I cant mount, su, or chmod su. I want to go back to 2.0.1 from this 2.1 rom and then get the Sholes 2.0.1, 1.2 rom.
su is listed as
-rwsr-xr-x root root 26628 2010-01-26 16:57 su
I know that root has read and execute permissions but when I type su I get "Permission denied" so I tried to chmod it to 755 and 777 and I get "Unable to chmod su: Read-only file system", so then I figured I need to mount the file system as read/write.. so I ran mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system and I got "mount: Operation not permitted" so no matter what I do I cant seem to get Root back...
Now I have my nandroid backup of my stock verizon 2.0.1 but do I need root access for the nandroid flasher to put it back? will i brick the phone if I wipe it and try to install the backup?
I have tried the root process from this page Installation | Sholes and from Obtaining Root - Root Your Droid and steps 1-6 of the 2.1 the easy way article and none of them work. I also ran the "un-root your phone" fixes and tried re-rooting and still not working. I also have droid root helper and I tell it to mount and it says it is successful but I still cant run su in the terminal or on adb shell..... help!
