I seen the post on how to root the Droid Pro but I didn't see anything about doing it through the terminal emulator. Is this possible?

Not sure. But why wouldn't you want to use Z4Root? It's one-click and quick.

I wish I could. I have a school laptop that does not give us admin rights, so I do not have access to adb.

You don't need a laptop for Z4Root. It's an app you download on your device. It's no longer available in the Market (Google removed it), but you can find it on the internet.

Here's a site to get you started: http://www.addictivetips.com/mobile/...ndroid-phones/

OK, In the instructions. It says you have to run adb commands.
http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=842074. I went to your link though and read those. I will try that and get back to you. Thanks a lot.

You only need to do adb if you're doing theming. To just root, you only need the Z4Root app. IN fact, you'll see my question answered in that forum on that very same thing.
Let me know!

Glad it worked for you. I'd recommend the following apps as "must-haves":

Titanium backup
Root explorer
Wireless tether

Ok so I downloaded titanium. I did the back up to all user and system alps. Is the root explorer the same as like su? Also, do you have to pay for wireless tether?
