Also my sd card was mounted when i was doing this as i know some people have had that problem before.
Read the topic better, it says:
When you get # shell, UNMOUNT the sdcard!!!!! This will make the correct link available. Then continue on.
2) Use the menu option on the phone to disable sharing the SD card via USB
3) cat /sdcard/Superuser.apk > /system/app/Superuser.apk
4) cat /sdcard/su > /system/bin/su
5) chmod 06755 /system/bin/su
