    /tmp $ chmod 777 rage*.bin
    chmod: rage*.bin: No such file or directory
    /tmp $

    all files are in the root of the sdcard. i can not get past here for the life of me.

    make sure your files are placed on the SD card, and not in any subfolder because that might mess it up.

    Does this method still work to gain root access? I tried it twice after receiving the update last night, and I failed to get root both times with this method.

    I don't think it matters. As long as you get those three files onto your phone. Just throw them onto the SD card and it should work.

    Let me know if it everything goes fine. I already did this method one time successfully. After the update last night, I tried to do it twice, it hasn't worked for me.

    as long as you put in all three files, just ignore what it says. continue following the instructions by hitting the home button, and force stopping the terminal emulator that you're using
