adb push su /system/bin
that command and a couple to follow are giving me problems and an error saying
cannot stat 'su' : no such file or directory
Sorry BIG NOOB mistake
Didnt extract the attached files to the right destination the first time. If anyone has this problem that is your answer!!
Thank You uploader this was my first Root and and is officially ROOTED!!!

Thanks a bunch!!! My first Android rooted and it wasn't too hard. Took me longer to download and install everything on the computer. I ran into a few fumbles, all my fault. But I recovered and got the right prompts saying I have root access. Sweet!
Next step I want to create a backup. ROM Manager doesn't seem to do the trick so no onto more digging

I followed the procedure here to root the phone, downloaded and installed superuser and Ti backup, then backed up the recovery img and then installed the custom recovery from the other thread. I'm not sure though if my V has a permanent root or not. I can run Ti backup and it says it's rooted, but I still cannot delete any bloatware (from the App Settings). To start an abd shell I have to still use superoneclick, if not I get the $ not the #. Once permanently rooted, do you still need to use superoneclick or can you just open up a cmd prompt and go?
Nvrmind. I can adb without superoneclick now for some reason. Moved to the RedRom so no bloatware included, but it is still puzzling to me that I could not uninstall the VM apps.

I think it all worked. I downloaded Titanium backup and was able to uninstall air g chat, virgin live, twidroid, and where.
Is there anything else special I can do with my newly rooted phone? I'm kinda scared to do more, but if I could make the phone faster, or the battery last longer somehow that would be great. If not, that was a lot of work to unintall a twitter client, streaming hippy music, and knock-off IM and Places clients.

Do I have to leave usb debugging on? I have it off now.
Since I rooted yesterday my 3g connection has been crapping out, though the 3g icon is still there. Also, when I reconnect the phone through usb, the 'turn on usb mass storage' page flashes open and closed until I unplug and plug it back in. Just a few little buggy things that have happened since rooting yesterday.

I followed this guide step-by-step and it couldn't have been easier. I was wondering if there are any benefits to Rooting this way as opposed to doing it through ROMTools and the like?
I ROOTed using this guide but when I access ROMTools and attempt to "flash recovery to phone" the program seems to think I am not ROOTed and is unable to boot me into recovery. Therefore, I think I will have to ROOT again using ROMTools unless there is another way.
Thanks for any insight people have to offer!

Thanks everyone for the guide and feedback! I wasn't able to root my phone on an XP virtual machine on mom's Mac (maybe because it was a VM, but I had the phone connected to the VM and not host box), but got it done on my 7 Home Premium x64 laptop.

The only real reason I wanted to root was to deleate the bloatware.
Now that I have deleated these apps, can I 'un-root'? If so, any help would be appreciated. I followed the steps in the first post in this forum.
If I do 'un-root' will I be able to keep these apps uninstalled? If I 'un-root', will I be able to get updated from VM or LG for gingerbread? (I hear that the optimus devices might get the update)
