Hey Marty...I have gotten the network issues figured out, the jetpacks wont work, im at my parents and everything seems to work great.
The problem im having it stated success and notice phone will reboot and dont panic. But my phone isnt rebooting. I believe everything is set up correctly.
Any help is appreciated.
Seems like the same as the 2 posts above, is the path file the same as above in this case i see he as a razr

Instead of doing su - like you asked, I accidentally went past the point of putting in the previous commands and it went through with rooting the device.
When it restarted the first time, on the eye it vibrates 3 times. I always let it boot up before I did anything else, except this time I went ahead and hit enter to continue right after it vibrated three times and before the phone finished restarting. The phone restarted and now my phone is rooted.
Guess it was user error all along, thanks a lot OP :P
Congrats on getting it to work. Unfortunately, I'm still a little lost....as you can tell, I'm not as tech-savvy.
As I mentioned, when I try to follow the instructions, I get past the point where it says that it's pushing the exploit. Unfortunately, after it pushes, my phone never reboots even though the prompts says it might. Then, it states that /system/bin/sh not found.
Can anyone explain to me in layman's terms what this means? Am I doing something wrong?
i tried to enter in a manual command like some have posted but im not to familiar with linux and it auto-runs and soon as i strike one key on my keyboard to enter in the manual command.
So im stuck for a moment, i want to know if its something im doing, the instructions are pretty straight forward and easy to follow, i have tried it multiple times and get the same response.
i did test if i hit enter again it reboots my phone but no root access.

Link to new version of file added to original post. I added some lines to the script to stress the importance of pressing one of the three hardware buttons on the phone (Volume up, Volume Down, or Power) once the exploit has been executed. After discussing this with the author of the exploit, this is an important step to obtaining root.
