made it past that now when i do the ./adb devices it doesnt list the phone in the list
Hell yes, I'm not only rooted, but deodexed and themed.
Sure, I was able to root, but didn't bother deodexing.
I was already rooted, but now I'm deodexed too.
No, I ran into trouble during the process.
No, I stopped at the disclaimer because I got scared.
First, try to chmod the binary and run it by typing the full path: "chmod /data/local/tmp/rageagainstthecage-arm5.bin" then "/data/local/tmp/rageagainstthecage-arm5.bin". See if that has any luck.
If you still have permission issues, I would try pushing it to /data/local/ instead of /data/local/tmp. That's one of the few places I can push a file and am able to chmod the permissions to executable. Then just cd to /data/local and proceed from there. Hopefully that has better luck.
Go into your phone's Application->Development settings and disable then re-enable USB debugging. Playing around with my phone, it went "offline" and wouldn't come back until I did the above.
You might want to try instructions explicitly for the Droid X. For example:
Easier 1-2-3 Droid 2 Root for Windows / Linux / Mac - xda-developers (this looks pretty sweet actually -- completely scripted -- be sure to scroll up )
How to: Root DROID X Running Official Android 2.2 - Droid Life: A Droid Community Blog (requires windows).
Motorola Droid X Froyo Root Available Now; Here?s How You Do It [Motorola Droid X with Android 2.2 Can Be Rooted Too] TFTS Ė Technology, Gadgets & Curiosities (same as first, but simpler instructions maybe)
I hope some of those help. Something I picked from the above links:
But as always, I remind you that you try to root at your own risk.If you get stuck, disconnect the phone from your computer, restart it, plug it back in, and rerun the root program! Sometimes, it will take multiple tries.
To everyone having troubles,
I stumbled upon a Mac/Linux script that I was able to modify to work with a Droid 1. It basically does every command for you, so if you're running Mac/Linux and still having trouble with rooting, check it out. You'll find it in the original post within step 1.
Let me know how it works. (I've tested with my wife's unrooted-now-rooted Droid. I also accidentally tested it on my own phone with no ill consequences.) I'm interested to see if it works for those who are having permission problems. Oh, and I've added the bonus that it will create a symbolic link to busybox for cp. No more getting to step 2 and getting stuck halfway through.
When I try to remount the system folder back to read, after deodexing, I get mount: Device or resource busy... I don't want to reboot until I can put this back into readonly permissions.
Using windows and Droidx 2.2 rooted
Nevermind.. I read that if I just reboot, it puts the system dir back into ro mode..
Worked great with Black Glass...

Hey, I'm trying to use this method but am having trouble setting my droid to "PC Mode". I'm running opensuse 11.2 on my laptop and for some reason it doesn't auto-mount usb devices. I see the notification in the top to transfer files to my PC and I can select "Turn on USB storage" but I'm never prompted with this dialog: http://blogs.computerworld.com/sites.../froyo_usb.jpg
Having usb debugging on/off makes no difference. I can maually mount the device on my computer but the doroot.sh script still hangs at "daemon started successfully".
Is there a step I missed?
Droid 1 FRG22D
So I'm having the same issue at
mount -o rw,remount /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system
ln -s /system/bin/busybox cp
Except I get the error:
Link Failed File Exists
I know that I have busybox...
I have a slight problem deodexing my droid x I can get through everything and I use
su stop mount -o rw,remount /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system cp /sdcard/done_app/* /system/app/ cp /sdcard/done_frame/* /system/framework/ rm /system/app/*.odex rm /system/framework/*.odex mount -o ro,remount /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system reboot
method, but it says can not find file specified or something along those lines and I can not deodex and after that my phone becomes unresponsive so I have to do a battery pull I copied my app_done and frame_done to my sd card, yet it is not working. please help thank you.
