using this method and my virus checker on both my phone (AVG) and my computer (McAfee) found a virus in the rageagainstthecage-arm5.bin file and removed it/wouldn't let me open it.

are they always going to find a virus b/c they don't want you to root your phone, or is it really just infected?

if they are can someone send me a link/file to/of a clean copy of the rage file?

the su and the .apk come up with nothing found.

when i used the virus infected ones on my first try my phone freaked out and kept acting like i was touching two places at one on my touch screen. i had to go back stock. i even compaired it with my wife's droid. (we just both got droids. and the best news is she sold her ipod touch to gamestop cause she was so happy with the droid.)

I had the same issue awhile back and had to disable the anti-virus software to get it to work. The file is not a virus but the type of file is similar to what a virus might use so the anti-virus program just see it as a threat.

so what about the buggy touch screen problem after rooting? i did it to my phone two times now and the same problem with the same files. and back to stock again with no problems on stock.

Possibly a bad download. I would re download it and try again.

I downloaded it and found file within it just fine from the original link. I also have the file in my collection linked in my sig. Look for the file called "rageagainstthecage-arm5.zip"

good luck

Here is Super-One-Click Root v1.7 I uploaded that includes all the goodies needed for rooting providing you have downloaded the proper drivers for your Droid. I would have chose the latest version of SOC rooter, but it doesn't work for me and I found this version works flawlessly.. just make sure you choose the rageagainstthecage method as root method and you are good to go... this by far the easiest way to get my root established on my Droid 1.

SuperOneClickv1.7-ShortFuse.zip

and here is the rageagainstthecage-arm5.zip just by its self..

rageagainstthecage-arm5.zip

Hope this helps ya out!

So the text in red I type into the command prompt?

Also, should I back my phone up before trying this? If so, how?
