    I keep getting the 755 permission denied message? What am I doing wrong? Do I not have the right adb driver? What accelerometer program is best to use?

    I normally just use the messaging app and turn the phone sideways a few times. The accelerometer is what detects what orientation the phone is in

    Okay, I thought you might be talking about some kind of accelerometer calibration app or some such thing that I've not yet heard of.

    My OV came with the update installed. My first root failed the first 3 times just b/c i'm a noob with commands that require spaces. If you don't overthink it, follow the guide like a monkey, it should work.

    Thanks guys! My OV is now successfully rooted!

    Just thought I'd chime in here and add that this worked for without having to do a factory reset. The one part that actually didn't work was trying to push the jcase_rootme.zip to the SD card but once I figured out it had to go there I just moved it manually. The only thing I would add to it is that you have to use the camera button to select when you are in the CWM recovery. I had to do a search to figure out how to do that. And you have to use the Volume controls to move up and down but that was easy enough to figure out.

    Default Re: [ROOT] Virgin Mobile Security Update Now Rooted!!! Thanks jca

    Thanks!

    This was my experience: The first time, rooting went rather smoothly. Not perfectly and exactly according to the instructions, but close enough (like until the second reboot when I got into CWM recovery I had to use the home button to select instead of the camera button). I doubt that it matters, but I did a manual root each time. I felt it was safer and if there was an error along the way, I wanted to see where it was.

    I got root, got everything linked with Link2SD, and noticed the phone being really sluggish and a couple of FCs. Looking in recovery, I saw "fix permissions" and thought that sounded like a great idea.

    Yeah. Not so much. CWM recovery reset everything to 771. The next reboot I ended up with a seriously screwed up phone. Link2SD was suddenly throwing "link failed, permission denied" errors. On a Linux server I could fix permission errors, but being new to the inner workings of Android...and for whatever reason can't get ADB working on the command line to save my soul (set the path, installed Java, instaled the Android SDK, stood on my head and quacked like a duck, etc). Worked fine from running the .bat files, Android Commander works fine (it requires ADB)....so I dunno. But I'm saving that mystery for another day.

    I ended up re-rooting, about 8 times. Each time it would report success at each section, but no superuser. The last time I did a data wipe (from within the recovery), and THEN it was successful. FINALLY!

    I think it might not be a bad idea to add to the original post DON'T USE "FIX PERMISSIONS." As soon as I know more about ROMs/recovery, I'm definitely going to find a replacement for CWM.

    I read LeslieAnn's post about how to fix 99% of ROM issues, and as she suggested I formatted the SD card with the device the second time around. CWM recovery formats the SD card in ext3 format, and according to Link2SD ext3 isn't supported by my device and the phone wouldn't mount. It recommending formatting in FAT32, which I did (using MiniTool) and is working fine for the 2nd partition.

    I spent 3 weeks reading, scouring these forums (and several others), so I'd be prepared. Most I've ever studied for what was (or should have been) 5 minutes worth of work.

    Anyway, thanks to all for the information overload

    Ok, I am trying to root my phone, and I have gotten to this point 3 separate times.
    I have reset my phone twice, one time from the recovery menu, the other from the menu option, neither mattered.

    Instead of using adb, just copy the file over like you would anything else.

    Where's your adb directory? For example, if it's in C:\adb\, that's what you use.
