    I'm in the same boat...experienced Linux user but new to android. O think the latest root uses the current firmware version.

    So once u root and flash recovery, is it possible to go back to stock if needed for some reason?

    Where do we put these files? actually in the platform-tools folder? i am asuming push means to transfer to ur device.




    Now, you will need to push the misc.img, busybox, and psneuter by using the following below commands:
    • Adb push psneuter /data/local/
    • Adb push busybox/data/local
    • Adb push misc.img/data/local
    • Adb shell chmod 777 /data/local/psneuter
    • Adb shell chmod 777 /data/local/busybox

    i ended up making a folder for exploits. copy the directory name for example C:\Users\steven\Desktop\exploits and on adb type cd then paste your directory. so mine looked like this
    cd C:\Users\steven\Desktop\exploits
    or you can unzip the files to your adb folder but i couldnt get that to work

    I rooted today. took me about 3 hours front to back, but I probably wasted at least an hour and a half by speeding throught eh directions and having to go back when it didn't work right (I flashed the wrong image during Step #4) but it ended up working out and I am rooted & loving it!

    Utterly stupid question but might as well ask LOL. Coming from a rooted D1, and used to SPR... How do you flash without having a recovery in place? I know it's probably obvious when you're in process, but I would rather be sure of myself first.

    I've been... THUNDERSTRUCK!

    The files you download are RUU files that can be flashed through stock recovery. Then you push the necessary files through adb... If you have experience with adb the instructions posted are extremely easy to follow ... Took me around 30 to complete due to the length of time the RUU installs took.
