    ok I am trying to do the droid 2 root process through cmd prompt and I get past the first half ok but when I try pushing the superuser.apk, busybox, and su to bin it keeps saying failed because the file system is read-only...how do I get it to push it through? I am following all the directions precisely.

    Is this before or after you are trying to "chmod 0755 rageagainstthecage-arm5.bin" ?

    If it's after then you might wanna double check your mount command:

    mount -o rw,remount -t ext3 /dev/block/mmcblk1p21 /system

    I had an error saying read only file also then I noticed I typed that command wrong.

    Need to make sure the USB debugging icon shows up in your notif bar when you connect. I had to do it Charge-only mode of all things. PC mode is almost guaranteed not to work as that would make too much sense. Or try mounting system folder as above guy says. Happy hunting.
