    I followed the instructions for updating to 2.1 and rooting from this thread; http://www.droidforums.net/forum/motorola-milestone/43352-milestone-2-1-update-root-guide.html using the telus 2.1 sbf
    when I reboot and adb into the phone and try and run 'su' it returns the following;
    su: am.. Error:No such file or directory

    Any thoughts on why this might be?

    Make sure you have Debugging set Checked or it won't work...:)

    it is, it was actually the su.apk, I neglected to look at the screen to see that it wanted to me allow access :)
