    Did you do the OTA update? If so, I don't believe that has been rooted/fixed yet.

    which guide are you following? I think there's a different process for rooting 2.1.

    Also, make sure you're not on the newest update (ends with ".6") as that's apparently not rootable, but I think there's a way around that as well, by flashing the .5 RUU (could be completely wrong with that part)
