    Im reading that post now. But my main question is. I dont have access to a PC at work right now. I have spare time and i would like to do this with my phone. Is it possible to do a root without using a PC at all??

    Oops, I read your post wrong and assumed (my bad) that you wanted to root just with a PC. You can download the needed files using your phones browser and issue the adb commands using a terminal emulator (make sure you have a terminal program loaded from the market) and use a program like Astro file manger to move the needed files to the root of your SD card. I would wait and do it with a PC available in case you run into problems.

    What are you on? Stock 2.1 OTA? If so then no you can't do it without a PC.
