    Teddy,

    I said post, not thread. Did you click the link? I'd linked to a specific post in the thread because the poster obviously hadn't read through all the pages.
    :facepalm: Dooh! My bad.

    I've played with this a few different ways and getting rooted just using the phone isn't working out. I would think it should, but it isn't. You can still use a SBF method to get sprecovery or use Teddy and other's guides that make use of the SDK kit but you need a window's computer.

    If you apply a rom or theme - backup first!
    If you don't know how to backup...Stop until you do.
    hint: I name my backups like this: sg6.0_20100428 or ss4.2_20100626 to easily find them later. rom and date.

    Actually the method(s) using the SDK (adb) can be done on all three platforms, but for Mac the commands are entered a little bit different.

    try a reboot to see if that refreshes it.

    if you didnt get any errors, youre most likely rooted

    ok. I am going to attempt step 2 option A, but I am going to have to assume that these instructions were written for someone that has a better understanding of these things than the average person. Me...I need a few things explained.

    **Change to the /tmp folder on your phone, copy the file to the tmp directory, change its permissions. run it, and wait.**

    Ok... I changed to the tmp file and opened it and it came up with an astro file. Also what file do I have to copy to the tmp directory? how do I change its permissions? How do I run it?

    **make system read-writable, copy the superuser. su and busybox files to where they need to go, use chmode to change their permissions, then make the system folder read-only, and exit Terminal Emulator**

    Here.... what system? Where does the files "need to go"

    I just need a better understanding of this. Maybe even a youtube video....lol

    Re-read the steps as you have only quoted the outline(s), i.e. it should read (bold added by me):

    **Steps 1-5Change to the /tmp folder on your phone, copy the file to the tmp directory, change its permissions. run it, and wait.**
    And the steps are:


    Code:
    1. cd /tmp
    2. cp /sdcard/download/rage*.bin /tmp/
    3. chmod 777 rage*.bin
    4. ./rage*.bin This will take some time, just wait for the $ to show up so you know it is done.
    5. Go to Settings > Applications > Manage Applications > Terminal Emulator > and Force Stop the application
    Ok... I changed to the tmp file and opened it and it came up with an astro file. Also what file do I have to copy to the tmp directory? how do I change its permissions? How do I run it?
    If you redo it with the actual steps 1-5 above, you should get a different outcome.

    Step 7-14**make system read-writable, copy the superuser. su and busybox files to where they need to go, use chmode to change their permissions, then make the system folder read-only, and exit Terminal Emulator**
    Again it's just an outline of the actual steps that follow.

    Here.... what system? Where does the files "need to go"
    Here's the actual steps:


    Code:
    1. mount -o rw,remount -t ext3 /dev/block/mmcblk1p21 /system
    2. cp /sdcard/download/Superuser.apk /system/app/Superuser.apk
    3. cp /sdcard/download/su /system/bin/su
    4. cp /sdcard/download/busybox /system/bin/busybox
    5. chmod 4755 /system/bin/su
    6. chmod 4755 /system/bin/busybox
    7. mount -o ro,remount -t ext3 /dev/block/mmcblk1p21 /system
    8. exit
    All of this hinges on you having downloaded and extracted the rageagainstthecage.zip file as detailed above where you quoted.

    good luck
