    I'm running 2.1 and when I run Terminal Emulator to hide a few apps and I type su it says Permission Denied. Am I not rooted or what?!

    I think I'll just go cry in a corner as I'm so lost...I thought I was rooted once I installed 2.1 since I had to root to get to this point. Btw Berry2Droid, everything you said lost me.

    Just asking the basics i guess, what 2.1 do you have? HC or Greek35? I thought i was rooted as soon as i went to 2.1 but apparently thats not always the case with everyones 2.1 version.

    Then you are already rooted.

    I am also using 2.1HC (so, apparently I'm rooted) and would like to remove AmazonMP3 and Visual Voicemail. When I open terminal emulator and type su i get a permission denied error. Any help is appreciated.

    OP, I believe I have read somewhere else that 2.1HC does not keep the phone rooted.

    Hope this helps.

    Last weekend, I installed each version (Greek's and humancyborg's) of 2.1. In both cases I lost root. No biggie. Just simply adb push the su file back to /data/local ... then follow the rest of the rooting directions found in about a bazillion places on the internet. :D

    If you're still lost after reading the above . . . maybe rooting isn't for you. Just sayin'...

    I'm lost after that so are you saying that I cannot learn how to do it if I don't understand what you've written? Is it that difficult?

    No, it is not difficult. The truth is, if I can do it, anyone can. But it seems to me that a lot of people don't want to take the time and read through the instructions and/or tutorials that are already available ... on this forum, and almost every other DROID forum.

    [rant]

    I would like to add that these forums create just about as many problems as they solve. A lot of people that want to root their DROID don't even know what it means, or what they can do once they are rooted. And then they get themselves in a jam, and want us to wave a magic wand to make their bricked phone come back to life.

    [/rant]

    If you can't find your answers in THIS FORUM, I don't know where you will.
