    well I got everything and entered
    adb push busybox /data/local/busybox
    it came back and it comes back and says device not found.
    USB debugging is enabled.
    This thing is looking pretty cool.
    Hope it is as tough as they say.
    I am easy on my phones, but if it is tough it should last forever, right ?

    you and me, both. I'm trying this today and I cannot even get Busybox to copy up to the Droid.

    Me either. No busy box copied.
    I thought it started once but would not do step 2

    Have a problem..

    Trying to install Busybox after root. Downloaded the zip file. Extracted it to the tools directory in androidsdk on my Windows XP PC. Did download the USB drivers from motorola.

    the path to my tools folder is C:/android/androidsdkwindows/tools

    Then followed the following steps as outlined in first post:
    cd to your adb tools directory
    adb push busybox /data/local/busybox
    adb shell
    su
    cd /data/local
    chmod 755 busybox
    ./busybox

    When I type in su it is fine. I am able to go thru the next couple steps. The problem is at
    #./busybox
    It says permission denied.

    Any thoughts. I am a noob with this. If possible can someone explain what I am doing wrong?

    Also since i get permission when i type in su am I right in assuming that the root was successfull??

    Rooted the phone using the instructions from
    Obtaining Root - Root Your Droid

    Thanks in advance

    I have root, and whenever i try to do anything in the terminal and get to the point to mount for read-write:
    mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system
    the cursor moves to the next line and says:
    usage: mount [-r] [-w] [-o option] [-t type] device directory

    so it thinks i am using the mount cmd incorrectly but i dont see what im doing wrong help

    I'm stuck on the same step. Where did you get the correct file?
    Here, I attached it if you still need it.
    i have the same issue, where did you get the other binary?

    I believe this is the non-hardcoded version.

    I messed up. On another thread the instructions listed "mtdblock3" instead of 4. I caught the mistake midway. Here is exactly what I typed in terminal emulator. Note where I typed a 3 in red. Please tell me what I just did, and what I should do now.

    su
    mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock3 /system
    cd /system/app
    mv Email.apk Email.bak
    mv VVMStub.apk VVMStub.bak
    mv com.amazon.mp3.apk com.amazon.mp3.bak
    mv CorpCal.apk CorpCal.bak
    mount -o ro,remount -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system
    sync
    reboot
