Stumped huh? i tried to use adb also and when i got to the sdk tools and ran adb i got the same dollar sign?
not stumped just working and doing a million things at once.....when you get the $ type su
as soon as you type it look at the screen on your phone and see if the superuser app pops up,,,but the fact that you had to download it isnt a good sign.
Noob question. How do I know If I'm rooted. Followed the semi auto root. And everything went through. Just like it should. I tried to uninstall and app and it would not let me. So I'm guessing I'm not. So I tried again. When I get to the /data/Gingerbreak prompt It says something about unable to gain access.
