    I am still a little confused on how to use ADB and I am looking for some help here. For example where to save it and how to get into it and how to run ADB.

    Once I get home from owrk today I would like to flash the new 2.1 sbf with RSD Lite (I have no issue with this as I have flashed the 2.0.1 sbf a couple times) and then root the 2.1 OTA update following these directions:

    adb push su /system/bin/suadb shell "chmod 6755 /system/bin/su"adb push Superuser.apk /system/app/Superuser.apkadb shell "chmod 644 /system/app/Superuser.apk"
    step four: reboot
    step five: stay alive

    enjoy rooted stock ESE81, with no need to [wipe your data] install a hacked together copy of ota...




    The issue is that I have never used ADB and dont know how to use it. Is it a simple program? Is there a good tutorial on how to install it?

    I am just looking for some help so when I go home and root the OTA I wont run into any problems.

    If this is a difficult task I will more than likely just install a rooted rom as I am ok with useing SPRecovery as I was rooted with 2.0.1 and was running Smoked Glass.
