    Hello,

    I'm trying to downgrade my HTC desire Z, so i can root it.
    I'm doing it on the froyo way with psneuter.
    When I type the folowwing commands:
    adb push psneuter /data/local/tmp
    adb push misc_version /data/local/tmp
    adb shell
    chmod 777 /data/local/tmp/psneuter
    chmod 777 /data/local/tmp/misc_version
    /data/local/tmp/psneuter
    adb shell
    NOTE: You should have the "#" sign instead of the "$". If you do, you have temporary root, and can continue on. If you have the "$", then the exploit has failed,

    the last adb shell doesn't work.
    always i get this:
    permission denied

    After the first ADB shell i get a $ sign instead of a # sign.
    What am I doing wrong.
    (sorry for my english)

    Do you have a link to the root method?

    OK so you have the unzipped file in your folder where you're running adb from correct? Does adb recognize your device?

    Do

    Code:
    adb devices
    And an alphanumeric string should be there.
