    I attempted to root my phone using the manual method but it doesn't look like it worked. I used the instructions in the rooting methods thread, as well as had the video from the same thread going in the background. I feel like I did everything right, especially through step six. The instructions only have seven steps though, and the video has nine. I followed the instructions exactly. After that didn't work I went to the video (which uses the instructions from droid-life) and did the extra step...which to me looks like step five exactly. No dice. The phone works but it's not rooted. Please help!

    I re-flashed the custom RUU and did all the steps after that. I think I have root access now (Rom Manager asked me for superuser access, I would think that means I'm rooted) but when I try to run Titanium Backup it still tells me I need root access. Any ideas what's happening?

    EDIT: Nevermind, it asked me to reinstall busybox and that seemed to work.
