    Could be. Some seem to like to drop it in xbin and others in bin.

    Thanks Christim!

    Thank you, thank you, thank you. I was ripping my hair out (what little I have left) trying to get my X re-rooted after updating to 2.2.1. Step @ Option A worked perfectly!

    Thanks again.

    Please help rooting

    1. cd /tmp
    2. cp /sdcard/download/rage*.bin /tmp/
    I Downloaded the files for rageagainstthecage
    Extracted them
    Turned on USB debugging
    Restarted my phone
    Then went on the the terminal emulator the proceed with the instructions
    I got through 1 and 2 with no problems.

    Once I get to step 3 I get the following message.
    chmod 777 rage*.bin
    Unable to chmod rage*.bin: No such file or directory

    I checked and the file is in my download folder.

    I saw that a few others had a similar issue but they all were fixed by turning on USB debugging or restarting their devices. Any ideas? Please help.

    The 4 files, from the zip file should now be in the /sdcard/download folder (rageagainstthecage-arm5.bin, su, superuser.apk and busybox.
    What are we going to do?
    Steps 1- 5: Change to the /tmp folder on your phone, copy the file to the tmp directory, change its permissions. run it, and wait.


    which file are we copying? all 4 or just 1 of them?

    Type in the text in blue further down. The .zip file contains all four of those files and they need to be extracted to the SD card in that fold.

    Yes.

    So does z4root, provided you didn't accept an update while rooted.

    Were you previously rooted? If not, use z4root.

    This came from my brain by way of my finger and my phone. Don't ask where any of them have been. Especially the brain.
