    Need some help guys, here is the link I am following.

    Custom Recovery Image - Root Your Droid

    I am rooted. I have USB debugging checked (but mount is turned off as stated in the instructions). USB is plugged in. When I type adlb shell I get "error: device not found"

    C:\android-sdk-windows\tools>adlb shell
    *daemon not running. starting it now *
    *daemon started successfully *
    error: device not found

    whats up man...its a popular tethering service, i use it all the time and it interferes with adb for some reason and gives that exact error to me...device not found. uhhmmm did you set up the file path for adb when you first installed it? cause theres a couple extra commands youre supposed to put in before you actually type "adb shell"....the tutorial i followed taught you how to bypass those first couple commands to where you could start any adb session with the command "adb shell"

    Like you said it could be something interfering with it. I see the word daemon but I don't use daemon tools, or any other burner programs except power iso. Is the word daemon suppose to show up after you input adb shell?

    No tethering here, using comcast. I thought I have folllowed the tutorial to the letter. I don't remember seeing anything about extra commands. Can you post where that is Nate?

    Ok figure it out to this point. I can't figure out what to do after the su. I clicked allow, but after that whatever I put just duplicates. I'm using
