    Well I messed up pretty bad. I had froyo 2.2 loaded up and rooted etc and decided I wanted the scripts from /system/xbin that I extracted from NexBeast. I made a zip and transfered it over to the phone and extracted it into /system/xbin. The part I messed up on was not chmod the files so it appears that su isnt executable. None of my rooted programs run and I cannot su in the terminal window. I tried adb but I am getting permissions issues there too. I cannot mount the file system as RW either. Permission denied. I also cannot boot into recovery. I hold down x and it never gets past the initial M screen. The phone will boot if I allow it to but I appear to be locked out. HELP! Thanks in advance.

    your getting that running these commands in adb?

    adb push su /system/bin/su
    adb shell "chmod 6755 /system/bin/su"
    adb push Superuser.apk /system/app/Superuser.apk
    adb shell "chmod 644 /system/app/Superuser.apk"

    your running these while booted in recovery right?
