this is awesome.....but could someone please put this in english for those of us not so familiar with rooting and what not, and also could we maybe have a one click button like for the x lol. i realize this phone is new, but its as good or better than the x(minus Bing of course) so it would be much appreciated.

So this is my first rooting, i get all the way to the part with
cat /sdcard/su > .
cat /sdcard/busybox > .
chmod 4755 su
chmod 4755 busybox
when i do cat, it says . is a directory
and according to your same post on a different forum someone suggests cp, i try that and it says CP: not found
Im sure its a user error, any advice?
*edit* cat /sdcard/su > su
seemed to work, same with busybox
*2nd edit* well i seemed to have messed up the superuser.apk part now, when i go to apps in my phone, it has the superuser icon, i click it, and it goes to a black screen... im trying to uninstall it now with the uninstall command and it is giving me 'Failure' message, i try the reinstall command and i get 'INSTALL_FAILED_INSUFFICENT_STORAGE'
and To Phyziks, all i did was make sure it was on data usb settings not media, i installed the drivers for my phone and turned on debugging mode. are you getting anything to list when you do 'adb devices' ?

Are there any settings that I need to preset on the phone itself before I start trying this? I keep getting "error: device not found" or "failed to copy 'su' to '/sdcard/su': Permission denied." I'm mounting the device and I also had USB debugging turned on.

I feel like an *****..I downloaded the drivers and SDK to folders on my desktop, but now I'm not sure how to proceed. Are all of the commands just done on your computer or do you hook your phone up first? Mine is arriving tomorrow and I'd like to get this done asap!!

Edit - OK yea, I see your xda post. Nice, I'll give this a go today. Thanks for being the guinea pig Dirrk!
DoubleEdit - On a side note, what are you using to take screen caps? I tried DroCap2 or something and it sucked horribly.

Thanks Dirrk! 2,191 here! Woo!

Try shootme in the market for screen captures. And I guess I'll be peaking over at XDA, to see what you guys are talking about to get those kinds of numbers!!
Edit: I sticked this thread as the mother of all how to's. Dirrk, I also edited the title. I hope that's alright.

CMD promt wont recognize adb commands
As a noobie, this is starting to make a little sense. Only problem.... When im in my command promtp I can run the adb command to find my device which it does. once i get to the "adb push" command, the get the message "adb is not recognized as an internal or external command, etc..." any ideas??
