I am working on this root kit right now.

Windows 7 64 bit
LG Eve, had it less than a week

I have installed the SDK, the USB drivers and have managed to get to step 2 under the section "Navigate to your installed Android SDK (ie: "cd c:\SDK\tools\")."
This is the part where you use "adb shell" and you should see the # sign. I always get the $ sign, even after multiple reboots of phone and computer.

The command line I am running has administrator access.
"adb devices" DOES return a device number
USB debugging mode is ON
I tapped the "enable root access" option in the hidden menu on the Eve

Any ideas? I was reading on a link about another phone and apparently if you get a $ sign then you do not have "su rights". For that particular example the instructions include typing su and then they get the # sign.
For the Eve it doesn't work that way. If you type su at the $ sign you get a
"su: permission denied" message.

Does anyone have an idea of how to get this to work? Has anyone got this work?

If you need additional information about my phone/computer I would be happy to list it.

I'm also going to go back to the beginning on this and make sure I didn't miss something in the instructions.
