Nevermind got it ur a saint dude
motocache ... u did good with this, works really well on the first take even for noobs ... thanks
i speak for many when i say ur support on here is something that can't be touched by companies that sell stuff to ppl ... (i mean good)
I spend so much time answering questions that I don't often post to say "thanks" for all the positive feedback and comments. I'm glad this has been helpful to so many. I might be wrong, but if you are already on FRG22D, I think that my files/method are the only known way to get rooted without downgrading some part of your phone first. That's kinda cool.
[Edited to add: As of this morning (9/9) my method is no longer the only method. It was for awhile, but no longer. The guys at Droid Life published a tutorial on using the "rage against the cage" binary method to root FRG22D. I believe it is OS version specific, so it could possibly break in future versions, but then again, there may never be another release for the D1, so that may not be an issue. In any event, if you're having trouble with my method, head on over there and check out the alternative.]

Moto - I already use DB as well; the only place I can't access it is at work, because of WebNanny - er, excuse me, "Web Marshal".
Thanks for you help; I'm assuming that since my su files are in the right directories, I'm ok for now. If we ever get another update I need that breaks root, I'll give your method a try. Now it's off to find out about backups, ROMs, etc...
- Your Superuser.apk is in the same place that my package puts it.
- Your su is in the same place that my package puts it.
- My package puts busybox in /system/xbin
- My package puts the busybox symbolic links (of which "mkdir" is one) in /system/xbin as well.
So, if you re-rooted with my package today, the only "ill effect" is that you'd end up with your current copy of busybox and its symlinks in /system/bin and another in /system/xbin. Generally this wouldn't cause any issues, but if it were me I'd go back in and clean one of them out afterward just because that's how I am.
I get the impression the "1-click" methods may or may not lend themselves to what you want to do with the phone down the road; it helps to understand more of what you're actually doing.
