I'm sorry if this is a dumb question but, to install this we have to download to sd card, boot into recovery and flash it, right?

I have a rooted Nexus One running CM 5.0.6 and I want to install 'su-2.1-e-signed.zip'.

Works great on my Eris, but only if it's installed via Recovery. Cooked into ZenEXP-Eris, it doesn't allow root perms. for any app.

I used Eclair Unsecure.

Is there any possibility that this new su will work on data/bin/su and superuser.apk on data/app/superuser.apk? I use an Archos 5IT and the system partion is still secured but we have been getting root on data partition.

Broken, did you mean this one:

Hmmm, must be something in the SuperEclair ROM. Switched to ZXK Eclair and it works just fine.

Great - su application now much more useful! I used OpenRecovery 1.05 to flash it to my Telus Milestone, following Broken's approach. file I used is "su-2.1-e-unsecure-signed.zip"

Now I only miss the # sign in the app menu - it looks so old-school

I used a similar method to apply version 2.0 which was originally posted on UltimateDroid on my Telus Milestone. The only difference is I used Milestone Custom Update rather than OpenRecovery. Replaced the files in /CustomUpdate/root with the ones from the zip and re-rooted. Worked great.

I was going to do the same thing with version 2.1 from here, but I noticed that I could just open the new Superuser.apk in Astro and press "Upgrade". It upgraded on the spot and seems to work just fine. Then I did "Uninstall Updates" and it rolled back, just as if it were a system app.

Anyway just to avoid having 2 copies in memory I applied it the proper way again. Oops! After applying it this way, my list went blank. Ah well I guess it's healthy to be periodically reminded of which apps I've allowed into my phone's deepest darkest secrets
