    Follow these steps


    1. cd /tmp
    2. cp /sdcard/download/rage*.bin /tmp/
    3. chmod 777 rage*.bin
    4. ./rage*.bin
    then i get this error message while inputing

    $ cd /temp
    $ cp /sdcard/download/rage*.bin /tmp/
    $ chmod 777 rage*.bin
    $ ./rage*.bin

    checking NPROC limit
    RLIMIT_NPROC={3815, 3815}
    Searching for adb...
    Cannot find adb: No such file or directoy

    $

    Have you tried the Z4Root app? works great and is a push of a button to root and unroot if you have too

    I'm actually trying that now, but i have a question.

    I'm slight OCD and once i have the phone rooted is it safe to uninstall the z4root app or should i keep it on the phone?

    I would keep it installed just in case you decide to unroot. There is a button for that in the app after you root.

    What he said ^^^. Keep the z4root app, just in case you decide you need to un-root at a later date for whatever reason....
