    my su seems to be not working... everytime i start up the phone it goes to it but it just stays as a black screen and i have to lock the phone and unlock it to get out of it. it does this with every program that has to run it like ROM manager.

    what rom are you using? sometime you have to do the su command from the command prompt in adb shell before it will function correctly.

    Okay, go to the command prompt with the phone plugged in in charge only mode and cd to the \tools directory of the android sdk folder. Then type adb shell and see if you get a "$" or "#". if you get the "$" just type su in the command prompt and it will prompt you on your phone to click always allow. after doing the su permissions should work fine.

    okay so in your command prompt type "cd C:\Documents and Settings\Mike\My Documents\Downloads\android-sdk_r05-windows\android-sdk-windows\tools" and that will put you in the directory where it will work.
