    DISCLAIMER: I ACCEPT NO RESPONSIBILITY IF THINGS TO NOT GO WELL!!!

    Here are the whole instructions if you are already rooted:

    *Open an app such as Root Explorer from the market
    *Navigate to the system/bin/mount_ext3.sh
    *At the top of the screen press the Mount R/W button
    *Long press mount_ext3.sh
    *Select copy
    *Navigate to sdcard-ext
    *Press paste (this will put a clean copy of this file on your sdcard in case things go badly)
    *Navigate back to system/bin/mount_ext3.sh
    *Long press mount_ext3.sh
    *Select Open in Text Editor
    *Scroll to the bottom of the file
    *Press the the return key on the keyboard to put a empty line
    *type the following EXACTLY AS SHOWN:

    chmod 4755 /system/bin/su
    chmod 4755 /system/xbin/su
    chmod 4755 /system/app/Superuser.apk

    (note: there is a single space between chmod and 4755 and there is a single space between the 5 and the /.)

    *Press save
    *Press the Mount R/O button at the top of the page
    *Navigate to the mount_ext3.sh file and long press it and select “view as text” in order to confirm the new lines are present in the file.
    *Exit and reboot.

    If you do root using the motofail method, how do you unroot?
