    How did you test for Root? Did you run a program that required root?

    Have you tried the 1-click method here? Thread has been relatively quiet and error free lately. I think most of the bugs are worked out. It does require to have ADB, but minor detail.

    lol I didn't know there was a one click method!

    To test I was trying "su" in terminal emulator as well as trying SetCPU and Rom Manager

    I'll check out the one click method

    It isn't exactly one-click per se, but it's pretty close. Just follow the directions. Pretty straight forward.

    Don't insult me when you don't even know what happened.

    I kept getting the error command not recognized. I added it to my path, it still didn't work. I didn't have an adb.exe, it isn't anywhere on my PC.

    I use root on a daily basis at work. I have built more AIX lpars than you have hairs on your head.
    I use lpar mobility between 2 P520's and a P750 with 6 different VIO servers, every single lpar is virtualized and built from the NIM server that I built.
    You should have an adb.exe It's the 3rd item down (Sorted alphabetically) in the tools folder of the AndroidSDK folder

    It wasn't there, and this no longer matters, I rooted without adb.

    One click has been out for awhile now. And pretty much all the bugs addressed.
