ugh, why is rooting so hard? i followed the instructions flawlessly for the sticky at the top of this section, but everytime i exit the command emulator program, im still looking at the $ sign, there's supposed to be a # sign. The only thing i can think it would be is where i placed the superuser and other files at. i placed them under /mnt/sdcard Here is what the command line prompt looks like : export PATH=/data/loca/bin:$PATH $ $cd /tmp $ cp /sdcard/rage.bin/tmp usage: cp [-Rfhip] src target; cp [-Rfhip] src1 ... srcN directory $ chmod 777rage.bin Usage: chmod <MODE> <FILE> $ ./rage.bin ./rage.bin: not found That's what it tells me. The guide says to ignore the outcome and wait for the $ to show back up, but it comes up instantly. So i force close it like the guide tells me, i then press the home button, and click the app and im greeted with $. What am i doing wrong? EDIT : The instructions say that any lines starting with * are optional. i thought that meant anything after that sign was optional so i didn't include it. Anyways, thank you Eousphoros. I can now go download SetCPu and Wireless tether from the market, and many more apps that require root access.
