Default How to Root The Citrus

Code:
adb push rageagainstthecage-arm5.bin /data/local/tmp/
 
adb shell 
 
chmod 0755 /data/local/tmp/rageagainstthecage-arm5.bin
 
cd /data/local/tmp
 
./rageagainstthecage-arm5.bin
now you may have to wait several minutes here. Once you get back to command prompt and rage is done go to next step. IF it hangs after a few minutes (more than 3-5 minutes) then do adb kill-server from another (second) command prompt window.

Code:
 
adb shell
 
Now you should have a # prompt and you have root.
 
mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock1 /system
 
exit
 
adb push su /system/bin/su
 
adb push superuser.apk /system/app/Superuser.apk
 
adb shell 
 
chmod 06755 /system/bin/su
I don't have time to upload the su, rage etc. binarys they can be gotten from any other root another phone thread. FYI you must be in media sync usb mode to connect adb. You can test with "adb devices" to make sure and you should see your meid listed backwards. PDA NET pc drivers worked for adb drivers.

Here is a dump for DEVS ONLY of the boot, recovery, & system partition Citrus Dump

I just got it again on 2nd citrus. If you are having trouble after some time has passed close the window the rage is running in and open a new window and type adb shell.

Something I have noticed, after running ratc, it freezes. after a few minutes, press ctrl+c. This will kick you back to cmd prompt. type adb shell, and it will freeze again. press ctrl+c to go back to go back to cmd. now type adb kill-server. then adb shell. not sure why I had to do the ctrl+c twice, but it seems to help.
