Hit me up on Google Talk. I sent you a PM on XDA Developers.
Hm. I went through the first steps, forced closed the app and went back into it and still had a $ instead of #. It gave me the output when I put in the final step so I'm not sure what I did wrong.
When I relaunched my terminal app I still had a $ sign.Code:- open up your favorite terminal emulator program - cd /tmp - cp /sdcard/rage*.bin /tmp/ - chmod 777 rage*.bin - ./rage*.bin - ignore it's output, we are thinking outside of the box here, just wait for it to finish and return a $ - now go to settings -> applications -> manage applications -> running -> terminal and force close that girlie - relaunch the terminal app and you should be greeted with the friendly # symbol. Toda you now have a root shell
Did you do this?
And until myself or someone who is less lazy rolls a version of rage that doesn't check for adb you will have to enable USB debugging.
Settiings -> applications -> development -> USB debugging.
