    I'm in the middle of a root right now and I'm following the instructions from the first Video posted in the stickied thread.

    I just got past the # sign part and it says "No such file or directory" when I paste the Superuser and down commands.

    Can anyone help me/can I exit now without breaking my phone? Thanks.

    cp /sdcard/Superuser.apk /system/app/Superuser.apk
    cp /sdcard/su /system/bin/su
    cp /sdcard/busybox /system/bin/busybox
    chmod 4755 /system/bin/su
    chmod 4755 /system/bin/busybox
    rm /system/bin/rootshell
    exit
    exit

    Copied them exactly from the notepad file. Pasting them one at a time, none of them work.

    hmmm.... I dunno that looks fine. Check the directories. Make sure your SD card isn't mounted to the computer or something. Make sure superuser.apk is in there.

    I think it is mounted actually, I just realized my phone is in USB storage mode and not PC mode. Would it be okay to switch at this point?

    um... I'd say it would be fine to switch. just type exit into adb once. once you get in pc mode, start where you left off and see what happens. you shouldn't have any problems.

    Really? I had some trouble with that too. It's mostly a driver problem though I think. Once I got the drivers I was good to go.

    Good luck, if you need anymore help come on back.

    Was finally able to get it working after uninstalling and reinstalling motorola drivers from their website. Weird, but it worked! Thanks again.
