This is where I'm getting kinda confused because... I'm still not sure which directory is the phone's "real" root folder. Before, I thought it was the /mnt/sdcard :'(
Any clarification would be appreciated
& thanks in advance! You're truly awesome, Scotty
edit: Just more clarification. I was able to get root access (according to all the root-only apps + that root checker app). So now all I want to do is do a nandroid backup (via Amon Ra - followed this guide to a T via the TEMP Recovery method) but for some reason I can't go into the Recovery mode. I'm getting the hboot screen, just that I get stuck/hung up on the screen with that red exclamation point. So... I'm starting the process from step 2). Figured it could be me putting that Superuser-3.0.7-efgh-signed.zip in the wrong place/folder.
remember,you did not permanently write a recovery,so when you select "recovery" from the hboot menu,it is taking you to the stock recovery,wich is the ! triangle screen.
you will need to go to fastboot
(not hboot) and fastboot boot <recoveryname>.img
every time you want to use recovery. its a couple extra steps from a booting to a permanent recovery,but is a good habit to get into IMO,as launching recovery in this manner will let you restore backups without a seperate kernel flash.
hope that helps clear it up
last and not least...
a neat trick for keeping track of your sd card,is to figure out which it is(put it in a card reader is a surefire way) ans create a folder named "aaa SD card" or somethin to that affect... it should always be the first folder on your sd card,and make it pretty obvious that youre in the right place(thanks iowabowtech for that tip
