    Hi,

    I have a rooted 2.0.1 droid. I installed busybox into /system/xbin and all it's symlinks. I can su from the 'adb shell' interface.

    Two questions for all you gurus :
    1. I installed adfree but it complains about not being able to get root access. Did I miss a step?

    2. When I try to 'su' from a terminal application I get the error
    Code:
    su: uid 10065 not allowed to su
    
    I'm guessing this is the limitation of the current hack -- that it can only be done through `adb shell` ?

    Thanks for any info you can throw my way. :beer2:

    Ahh, thanks that did it guys.

    For anyone else who stumbles onto this thread, realize that there are three different update.zip files on the "root" thread. Make sure you grab the one from 3-posts down :

    Cheers!

    One post down.
    At least, the link that I posted, the second post [one post down from the first] is the guide to follow.

    I found a way to fix it! Simply click on revert, reboot, then click on update and you'll be golden.

    Where is it exactly that you click to update? Download and Install button?

    Try uninstalling and reinstalling the Adfree app.
    Also make sure you're in a good coverage area or on wifi.

    Once I did those, adfree worked.

    It's nice not accidentally pressing a link in an ad-supported app!
