    It hung there without kicking me out of the $ prompt for quite a while too. The guide says 20 seconds, but it took my phone like 5 minutes or so to kick me out of the $. Just wait for it and it should come back.

    You should have an app installed called Superuser. The icon is like droid skull and crossbones. If you can launch that without error you should be good.

    Also you can download Titanium Backup from the market. It will request Root Access when you run it, and it will also validate Busybox.

    It also has an option to fix Busybox so even if you don't use it for backups it's still pretty useful.

    You can also open the Terminal and type su.

    Yea, that's good. It will be blank until you grant an app root privileges. Once you do that.. that app will be listed in that black screen.

    Im up! Dude you are the man! I have tried loading adb on my computer many times in the past with no luck. You step by step made it sooo easy for me.

    Now its time to go to work with root explorer!

    Big Thanks!

    Still nothing

    I am still having issues. I pm'd you earlier. I have tried the root for newbies and the rootkitz root for the fascinate. One has a one extra command at the end- abk install Superuser.apk
    When I get here- and enter this in the cmd.exe- I get an error that it is already installed. I really need help. This should have only taken 5 min. and not it is 12 hours into a root. Help me please.
