    To add busybox:

    Mount /system as read/write (you can use root explorer for this if you want)

    and then install busybox from the market, it may give you an error message but verify it's installed by either going to adb shell or a terminal and typing:


    busybox

    OK so Im thinking of doing this just to get all of my completed Angry Birds levels back. But stupid question forthcoming. I know how to open a command prompt but I haven't done one using ADB. Is it the same thing as opening a normal command prompt and then just type the directory as shown in the second picture?

    Yup, you just open the command prompt where the SDK downloaded the adb executable.

    If you get the new version of the sdk you should copy the adb and the adb dll file over to the tools directory so it's easier for you.

    Make sure you did this step:

    adb push su /system/bin/

    you got it right, you should have rootboot.img, su, Superuser.apk.

    then at one point you push over su

    then the point you're stuck at is creating a link with that file, which shouldn't be a problem, but a quick workaround would be this:

    adb push su /system/xbin/
    So instead of linking you just have the same file in two places. There's no good reason why it's not working for you though.

    how do you know if you successfully pushed su over?
