From the SS you posted, your CMD is starting in the following directory: "C:\Users\Thanh\" when your SDK/ADB Shell is located at: "C:\Android\android-sdk-windows\tools" or "C:\Android\android-sdk-windows\platform-tools" depending on whether or not you're running the latest SDK. So when you start up your CMD keep inputing "cd.." until you're at the "C:\" directory. From there input "cd C:\Android\android-sdk-windows\tools" or "cd C:\Android\android-sdk-windows\platform-tools" and you should be good to go with the next steps in the walkthrough.
My recommendation is that you completely understand the guide in full considering a mistake made during the actual flashing may or may not be so easily fixed. I hope that this guides you in the right direction.

I'm having problems with the first part of step 4 using the Command Prompt.
I open it and go to the file for Android SDK Platform tools. Then I enter
adb push rageagainstthecage-arm5.bin /data/local/tmp/rageagainstthecage
and it come up saying [ device not found ].
I have the LG drivers installed on my pc and the usb cable plug in on
Charge only and USB debugging enabled. I have tried several time with no
luck and at a lose. Can someone help me please!!
I have gotten past the first part of step 4. Now when I get to the second ADB SHELL it come up again [ Device not Found ]
It is not reconnecting back to adb server. I even waited for 10 minutes and still a no go. Why would this happen? Any Ideas.
Thanks in advance.
Is there anyone out there who can help with this PLEASE????????????

I'm having the same issue, after running ./rageagainstthecage, and then waiting for upwards of 20 minutes (even though the adb session is terminated after about 30 seconds, and my phone reconnects to my computer nearly immediately), I can't restart adb.
It always says "error: device not found", and the only way I can restart adb is to reboot my phone. When I do that, and then restart adb shell, I still have $ instead of #.
P.S. Using Z4Root, everything works just fine.

I just got an Optimus T and returned my Optimus S within the 30-day window (CA law). I was frustrated with the uninstallable bloatware on the T and pissed that all my installed apps are at the bottom under 'downloads', forcing me to scroll down every time or put everything on the home screen. Since I had both the S and the T side by side, I decided to root them both and compare since there are some obvious differences in the UI.
The short of it is that I was unable to root the S, which had a current OTA, but I was able to root the T. The behavior of the S was that it did everything as expected when running the rootkit, but I could never get a root prompt (#) or su in as root.
After rooting the T, I installed the free version of Titanium Backup and started messing around. I backed everything up completely (I thought) and did a test uninstalling and re-installing a non-system app. So far so good. I then decided to do the same with some bloatware, specifically the Namco Pacman demo. Unfortunately I didn't look carefully before uninstalling it. Titanium Backup only saves data from system apps, and doesn't save the actual apps. I exchanged emails with Joel (the author of Titanium Backup), who is very helpful and confirmed this.
The phone works fine without the PacMan demo. Do I need to reinstall it in order to ever receive an OTA or if I possibly had to return the phone? If so, is doing this as simple as installing an APK and possibly an ODEX in the /system/app dir? And if so, would someone be willing to help me out? I don't see the demo in the android market.
Next, I upgraded to the Pro version of Titanium Backup and started freezing stuff I thought was unnecessary. I froze the wrong thing because the screen turned black except for the status bar, and when I tried to reboot the phone it hung. I had to reset the phone and start over.
I started looking around at the command prompt in the /system/app dir. Being a noobie but an experienced Unix user, I thought that perhaps the way 'freezing' works is to change permissions on the files in this dir, and 'defrosting' changes the permissions back. If that were the case, I could fix the problem that happened to me by changing permissions back on the right APK at the command prompt.
That's not the way it works. Could someone explain what freezing does, or point me to an explanation of it?

I rooted my Optimus T the day after I got it with SuperOneClick (Z4Root is easier to use now) and uninstalled all demo/pay-to-use (TeleNav) apps and received the OTA update a couple of days later with no issues. When I work on the phone I enable RW permissions and restore the RO permissions when I'm done. Rooting or uninstalling games and added programs apparently doesn't affect the OTA update. Perhaps leaving the RW permissions is what causes the problems? Could be deleting a system app that must run for the update.
I also periodically replace the apps in the /system/app folder with the updated ones in the /data/app folder so if I restore my device I don't have to re-download the updates. BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU PUT IN THE /SYSTEM/APP FOLDER, ONE PROGRAM MADE MY PHONE GO CRAZY WHEN INSTALLED IN /SYSTEM/APP, BUT NOT IN /DATA/APP.
P.S. Response to previous post:"all my installed apps are at the bottom under 'downloads', forcing me to scroll down every time or put everything on the home screen" Try Zeam it sorts all programs aphabetically regardless if system or downloaded.

I'm stuck from here. When I typed in ./rageagainstthecage , my phone will disconnect from the computer. So how can I get it conencted back? Or did you do anything else? Or just leave it 2mins as you said. Cuz from what happened to my phone, I can't even keep going. CMD just said no devices

So I ran into the 'device not found' error after running ./rageagainstthecage as well.
Further reading in the thread indicates no one has solved this and users have moved on to using z4root.
I think this info should be posted at the beginning of the thread, and save users the frustration. Just my two cents.
Has anyone tried the idea of, after rageaginstthecage runs, kill the adb server and restarting it to establish a connection with the phone? Haven't seen it mentioned.
P.S. Anyone getting command not recognized is in the wrong directory. Please re-check your installation of sdk on where adb is. If you have the old sdk it's in tools, if you have the new sdk it's platform tools.

My PC will not let me unzip the OptimusRoot.zip file. I am getting "Error:Access is denied. Cannot create C:\program Files\Android\android-sdk-windows\platform-tools\busybox. Administrative privileges may be required." I do have administrative privileges on my computer. Is there something up with the file? Thanks.
