    omg plz someone help me:

    I typed su, and it opened Superuser Permissions, but where do i type all this?

    3 - mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock3 /system - this mounts /system as a writable partition

    4 - mkdir /system/xbin - if it already exists you will simply get an error

    5 - cat /sdcard/flash_image > /system/xbin/flash_image

    6 - chmod 700 /system/xbin/flash_image - validate permissions on /system/xbin/flash_image - you are the root user after all, don't need world and group executable or even read =)

    etc???????????

    Excuse my triple post- Se7enLC is there a way you could toss me your contact info such as MSN, or AIM messenger screen names?

    I need some hands on help- for some reason I'm beginning to think I have a faulty droid.

    Ok I checked my windows explorer, nothing called ADB shell- shoot me now.

    EDIT: windows explorer as in, my Mounted SD card on my comp.

    EDIT AGAIN: That's just my new signature down there.. I'm not really asking if you've seen my phone.

    ADB is something you need to install, it's part of the Android SDK. I'm a little baffled that the how-tos don't explain that more clearly, but I guess they don't.

    Android SDK | Android Developers

    You might be rushing into this too much, and if you mis-type, you could screw something up. Spend a little time reading the forum and some other sites, especially the how-to walkthroughs.

    Just download android terminal emulator from the market and do all of the typing in there. Press the enter button on your phone after each line you type. Bang, problem solved

    And yea Se7enLc is right, you're rushing into things. If you take the time to read everything before you start, you end up saving yourself way more time by not having lots of mistakes and having to ask questions and wait for the response.

    well if you already have it to my knowledge you should be good. When you opened terminal, did it ask you for permissions? and did you click the always check and then press allow? If you've done these things and its still not working, I would try resetting the phone, maybe doing a battery pull, then trying it again in terminal emulator

    ok i got to the line mv /system/recovery-from-boot.p /system/recovery-from-boot.old

    and it said
    failed on /system/recovery-from-boot.p - no such directory.

    should i go on with the rest of the steps and ignore?
