    Okay so i have a samsung moment and i have been reading all these things about rooting the phone and i have gone to website after website looking for tutorials on how to root the phone and im pretty sure they are good tutorials but i have no idea what they mean by thiss 4) adb push root /system

    5) adb shell chmod 0755 /system/root

    6) adb shell /system/root

    7) unplug usb, remove battery, reboot into test mode when instructed

    8) adb shell

    9) /system/bin/btld_testmode

    10) /system/root



    this is what confuses me.
    if someone could shed some light on it or even help me do this i would really appreciate it!

    adb shell is located in the Android SDK... download on to your computer from here...

    Android SDK | Android Developers

    then once unpacked, you open the command prompt ("windows" key + r then key in cmd)... once its open, you have to navigate to \android-sdk-windows\tools (this all depends on where you unpacked it... I have all my stuff in one folder titled "moment" i.e. roms, sdk, sdk, etc go in here)...

    once there, you type in "adb shell" then hit <enter>.

    "$" should be displayed... type in "su" for "super user" access, then <enter>... be sure to check out SDX-Developers Forum for tutorials and such...

    I had a hard time finding this info myself... there was a video someone posted here a couple of threads down with some good info, as well...

    Well you shouldn't be messing around with Kernels if you don't know where to put it.
    Name it Update.Zip(Unless you have Win7 then just name is Update)
    Then reboot into SPRecovery(Power on and hold X) then go to install>Allow Update.zip installation>Install Sdcard/update.zip (some words here)

    I think thats what the last line is,but thats how you do it. Hope it helps. Good luck not bricking your phone.

    custom themes, change size of the pictures for your contacts, change the boot screen, install apps on sd card, improved battery life (also moves in 5% increments), wifi tethering, etc etc :D

    Dude! Go to SDX and find the themes section and READ all about it and find out if it is something you even want to do and ask questions there where everybody is actually doing it...
    Oh and enjoy the speed of your new Moment because no matter how long you have had it is a 'new' Moment when it is SDX....
