    Ok Finally!!! I have Roooooot! But I didn't do the busybox cmds and now I can't install titanium backup. I searched the market and the one I found says that it will not work as a ROM specific Busybox. Is this the one I need?

    Open Titanium and click on the problems box on the bottom right, choose to install busybox.

    Great guide, worked easily once I had the proper files and apps. I had zero knowledge of linux and was able to complete this in 15 min.

    I have some tips for those struggling ones I ran into. I have astro file manager, astro was not extracting droid2roor.rar correctly for some reason it kept extracting 0 bytes and terminal was not locateing file because it really was not there. So I grabbed unrar (free) from the market and extracted it to my sd card into the root location not a folder. I got better terminal from the market it let's u copy paste all the command lines. So I just had my browser up copy pasting from here to terminal. Now im takeing screenshots of my phone ...

    I get everything to get the #. but when I do the mount command. It gives the mount options. Should the rw come before or after it the -o?

    Flipp you need to wait longer for the progress to complete. That was my problem, but then I did it and waited longer and once it showed the forked part it was complete.

    Common Misconception:
    Leaving your GPS on drains battery.
    Truth is: GPS is only used when you open an application that requires it. You can leave GPS toggled on at all times.
