I went thru the sticky "All in 1: Manual update and Root the Droid" and when I got to the point of listing
ls -l *su
(you should see the following)
-rwsr-sr-x root root 76200 2008-08-01 05:00 osu
-rwsr-sr-x root root 76200 2009-05-30 11:28 su
(now continue typing these following lines to finish)
My result was like the above except my permissions were
-rwsr-xr-x for osu and -rwsr-sr-x for su.
Did something go wrong or is this normal?? Everything else seems to be correct. Another thing I noticed was that instructions at some places say to enter this line:
mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock3 /system
mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system
which is correct and could that be the cause of my problem??
I really wish I were more familiar with linux, then I possibly wouldn't be asking these questions.
BTW, I installed the terminal program referenced in the instructions and if I type su at the prompt, I get "su: access granted, courtesy of www.magicandroidapps.com" I also have a new Superuser Permissions icon in my menu (though it doesn't seem to do anything). Does this mean I am now successfully rooted??
TIA for any help and info,
