I edited it to add chmod for /system and /system/bin, pushed su and then edited it to chown su to root. I had to (after making a back up) restore nv with QPST several times to get the results (that part needs dissecting to to see why). After that installed superuser.apk and busybox.

And finally updated the recovery to GNMs all in one.

Now, We just need to do some testing to find out at what point the file came avaliable as 0777.

The only issue I have encountered (which could have been due to my own messing around) is that the phone is connected to the verizon network, but I dont have data, and when I try to make a call I get a recording to call support. I am heading over to verizon now to see if all they need to do is reprogram the phone to connect, hopefully without a hard reset.
ok so i have the file open now, (already backuped my stuff), and am trying to edit it. I just have 2 questions and then i believe im all set.
1. Where did you put the chmod? In the begining before the arg=$1, or later?
2. Did you use the # symbol, or $, or none at all?
thanks for the good info by the way. Hope to root soon!
