    Just curious if you have tried this yet

    Unplug your phone. Make sure debug is on, check your system and kill the process root.exe, plug phone back in and set to charge mode, turn root back on and perform step 3 again.

    Did that. :) - Still no worky.

    Um. Do you think I can pick up from Step 7 in the manual method to finish this (using below)?


    Step 7

    Push SU, busybox, and psneuter:
    adb push psneuter /data/local/
    adb push busybox /data/local/
    adb push su /data/local/
    adb shell chmod 777 /data/local/psneuter
    adb shell chmod 777 /data/local/busybox
    To gain root:
    adb shell
    /data/local/psneuter
    The following will remount /system and set up SU:
    adb shell
    mount -o remount,rw -t ext3 /dev/block/mmcblk0p25 /system
    /data/local/busybox cp /data/local/su /system/xbin/su
    chown 0:0 /system/xbin/su
    chmod 6755 /system/xbin/su

    Yep, I believe so. Im asking right now. I know thats what I had to do in order to get mine working but dont want to tell you wrong and mess something up. You can try that at your own risk. Or hold tight and im working on a definite answer right now.

    Hmmmmm... Not feeling good about this. Following the manual method with the video posted on Droid Life, I am good up until I go into adb shell. On the video, when the guy types out adb shell it shows a dollar sign. On mine it shows a #. When I try the next command: /data/local/psneuter I get mmap() failed. Operation not permitted. Is that because it is in charge only mode?

    Yeah go here and install this to fix.

    • View topic - [GUIDE] ADB for "Dummies"

    It automatically install ADB the proper way so it will function correctly.

    After you install this do a test an try the easy root method step 3 again and see what happens. Want to see if this fixes it.

    If not do step 7 from the manual method. Should be golden then.

    Damn. Still the same results.

    Here is what I show in the command prompt:

    Microsoft Windows [Version 6.1.7601]

    C:\>cd c:\android-sdk-windows\platform-tools

    c:\android-sdk-windows\platform-tools>adb shell
    # /data/local/psneuter
    /data/local/psneuter
    mmap() failed. Operation not permitted

    Ok then not sure,

    Go here : Easyroot + S-Off - Page 102 - xda-developers

    And post the issue your having. Make sure you include that you are on step 3 and have rom man super user etc etc showing up but that you can run as SU.

    Also include the version # of the root your using and also include that you have tried step 7 from the manual process with ADB and get the following.

    LOL. Starting to become comical. I cannot post in that thread because I have fewer then 10 posts (just registered).

    Don't want to set up my phone in the event I am going to have to reflash something. I am stuck.

    Not in freak out mode yet. :) And I really appreciate ur help.

    I just can't figure out why I am stuck at the end. I think whatever the issue is, is causing the Easy Root method to act the way it does. I can follow every step of manual mode STEP 7 until I get to the /data/local/psneuter command. Then it goes Poo Poo. Should I be concerned with the # instead of $ like the DLife video once I go into ADB SHELL?

    Well I got it to work, after an hour by clicking step 1 two times, clicking step 2 three times, and step 3 three times.

    Would not like to try the hard way as this made we sweat enough.
