    Rage is one of the files. When I use the terminal emulator and enter cp /sdcard/rage*.bin /tmp/ and enter, or actualy the arrow down and to the left it says it can't find rage.

    Are you sure you put all 4 files in the same place? They should be in the root of your SDcard.
    If you use the files app and go to phone files, you should see all 4 files right there not in any folder.

    Go to the folders where they are now, hit menu - select multiple - move, then hit the back button until you are in the root of the SDcard and hit move.

    Thanks pool shark. I figured it was something simple. I am rooted. When I launch the app it dosnt look like the screenshots online though. No enableing permissions. Downloaded wireless teather for root users and it launched. Have a ninja app though and a # app next to it.

    You can find a free terminal emulator on the market, don't worry, its hard to brick your phone, all you really can do is create more work if you mess up.

    And you wont have problems as long as you take the files out of droid2root folder and move them to the first page of the sd card individually. So when you open sd card you see all four. Inother words the code you type in is telling it to open sd card and grab this file. You are not telling it to open this then that and grab file. It needs to see it as soon as it opens it. The rest is a piece of cake. I messed up several times and am rooted now. Thanks again all who made this possible.

    - mount -o rw,remount -t ext3 /dev/block/mmcblk1p21 /system

    i get the output as
    Usage: mount [-r] -[w] [-o options] [-t type] device directory

    You're not putting the - before mount are you?
    the - in the beginning is not part of the command.

    Lazy or not your the man!! I have been struggling with sbf and adb on windows and linux for 2 days after updating and loosing root. I used your method and got things back and restored in 15 minutes while eating lunch in my car. :)

    lol yeah i know that. Just didnt know if there was anything in particular i should look for. i found one though. still iffy on actually rooting it though. need to go over everything first to make sure i have it all.
    question about the commands though: do i type them exactly as they are shown on the original post? or do i omit the first "-" from each one (not sure if that was used to show that it was a new line or something).
    thanks again for the help.
