Does anyone still have the original sholes signed update.zip that had superuser.apk concatenated? I rooted my droid the day after I got it in November of last year. I tried to root with command line and ADB but there was always something missing from the posts I read. What finally worked was an update I could apply with the original recovery that had superuser. This allowed me to flash SPR with roothelper and the rest is history. If I can find that update.zip I can email it or link it. Download, install, and you're rooted without a computer.
Basically what has to happen is to get the system partition mounted read/write so you can get superuser.apk written to /system/app and the permissions set.
lol, if the first three post didn't do it, ship it OP...Sad IMO, rooting a droid is like the first level on Mario bros....easy. Common man?! WTH???? my child can root a droid! 99% of peoples issues are the fact that they don't read~!
