Ok, I still have never been able to root a phone. Maybe it is me but I am starting to lose my mind with this. I have been trying all evening to figure out why my Telus Hero won't root. I followed these instructions to a T: [GUIDE 16/11/09] Get started rooting Telus HERO130! (No need for QMAT!) - xda-developers I was able to perform all the steps but when I ran ADB SHELL at the end to check if root was accessed I got $ instead of #!! Arggh! I even tried to install Market enabler to double check to see if root was active but it denied me access, confirming non-root status. I could used some help here. I don't have enough experience with rooting and android to solve this myself. Big thanks in advance!
