    What four files are you talking about? maybe I'm confused about that. When I extracted the download it came with: add-ons, platforms, tools, sdk manager, and sdk readme. I put those four files in tools, but I'm still getting the same message.

    The four files from the droid root archive...they are:

    - Busybox
    - su
    - superuser.apk
    - rageagainstthecage-am5.bin

    Extract those from the droid2root.rar archive and copy them into your /android/tools directory, then follow the instructions, running all your adb commands from the android/tools directory

    This is assuming you installed the SDK to /Android.

    ADB server didn't start ACK
    *failed to start daemon*
    error: cannot connect to daemon
    I'd try closing the command prompt and restarting it. Then doing the adb devices again, and see if that works. If it doesn't, try updating the files for adb. Go to the setup.exe and it'll open a window and updated the files for 2.2.
    Alas, I've tried that repeatedly; this is my fifth attempt rooting in almost as many days.

    Scratch that, no joy. Updated again to dump the google APIs in, but to no avail. Everything's up to date.

    Anybody know any solutions? I'm on Windows 7 64.

    Good...

    Someone should update that rar so it has the newest version of superuser.apk....

    I'd just go to another computer and try it. Preferably a Windows XP one.

    If you could provide Ubuntu instructions, I could do it on my netbook.

    Figured it out. Going to write it up in a bit. Pretty easy as well.

    Here you go. Figured it out for you. Finally finished at 5:30 AM.
