Perhaps something he did earlier setup something for root?
I'm running CMD as admin and have ADB set to always run as admin so I don't think it's on the Windows end. Also if I try to push su to /sdcard/ from the command prompt I get a copy failed: Permission denied message.
Currently have USB debugging on and connected as mass storage.
I can LS all day around the file system, even checked /system/bin/ to look for SU, wasn't there. But I get the device offline if I try to push anything.
That mount command gives me an operation not permitted error.

one more thing, as i was having trial and error. i tried orignally to root via droidrazr utility 1.82 and it did the several reboots but still had no root. then i tried those commands. i think maybe it could've given su over adb which may have allowed me to continue further. Problem is that I tried a million things til I finally got it working. I do seem to recall way back in early droid days that you could have su over adb but not on the device itself.
I'll wait to see what you guys figure out over the next couple of days, I won't have my laptop until Tuesday. Don't want to weigh down my girlfriend's machine anymore.
enkryptik and I are going to give it another try on my PC, but right now I have multiple instances of ADB and they keep fighting for control. Can't push anything. I am trying to get rid of them and start clean.

This process isn't going well. We followed same steps exactly to get jb which was stock ics, ics root, ota rootkeeper, protect root. jb update. Neither one of us did the temp unroot.
Somehow mine is rooted after this and we cannot seem to reproduce this on FoxKat's atm.
