    Getting Root access of you phone after the 2.1 update.

    If you have updated to 2.1 and have not rooted your phone but would like to do so here is a guide.


    2.1 SP Recovery SBF has arrived !

    This is great for those wanting to go slower and just gain root access of their phone so they can do things they couldn't otherwise like:

    Titanium backup
    Drocap2
    Metamorph
    And many others without applying a custom ROM or Kernel.

    On the otherhand it is also a stepping stone toward applying a custom rom or kernel as you need sprecovery to start with.

    Cheers,

    If you are trying to flash the sbf you should get the bootloader screen that is where you should be. you phone should say: Battery ok
    OK to program
    Transfer Mode:
    USB
    Then in rsdlite you may have to hit show device. If it does not show up you may need to reboot your computer, or reinstall rsdlite or something else is wrong.

    Good Luck

    when i am entering these command prompts

    * adb push su /system/bin/su

    * adb push Superuser.apk /system/app/Superuser.apk

    * adb shell "/system/bin/chmod 6755 /system/bin/su"

    * adb shell "/system/bin/chmod 644 /system/app/Superuser.apk"


    on my computer it pops up with a bunch of stuff which im guessing is normal, is it automatically loaded to my phone cause im commanding my computer to do so or what? cause once i did all that i type in su on my phone under the terminal window and it said access denied it didn't pop up with the # sign indicating i have root access please help

    odds are you missed a step. Did you remember to mount system after you booted into recovery?

    If you are having trouble following the guide go here:
