Just use my Update.zip if you just want root only
Download This Package > Root.zip
*EDITED* 6/29/2010 Update Now Contains Su & Superuser.apk. Permission Fixed on SU / Sh as well
-Contains Dusty51 script for Partitioning the a2sd & Swap
-fstab install so swap will work
-Default partition table's are:
-Linux Swap @ 32mb
-ext2 a2sd partition @ 512mb
-Fat32 Partition is based on the size after the 2 above
Once You load the Recovery via update.zip, Unplug & Plug the USB to make sure the Device is Seen..
- Open Command Prompt from Computer
- Adb shell
- Next Follow the Command, y = Y to confirm..
Note: Backup your SDCARD first, only thing should be on it is the update.zip then Follow the above to Format for a2sd support!
I've got root now and just wanted to repeat what made the difference for me (also posted pages back):
when you're ready to run recovery in the bootloader be sure to unplug the USB from your phone until 'HBOOT' not 'HBOOT USB PLUG' displays.
So basically you unplug the phone until 'HBOOT' appears, have 'RECOVERY' highlighted, and plug the phone in a moment before you select 'RECOVERY'.
The moment I did that I had 'recovery' displaying in my loop.
Continue with the directions...
First!! - Go to Settings > Application > Development and turn on USB Debugging. This should save you headaches.
NOW… Power Off the Slide
Un-zip the Package you Downloaded
Place the Contents of "update.zip" & "ota.zip" & "loop" into your Android SDK Tools folder.
Open Command Prompt or Terminal and CD to the SDK/Tools Directory.
Power on the Slide into the bootloader by Holding Down ( Volume Down + Power Button )
Now run your loop file from the prompt (either type "loop" in windows or "./loop.sh" in a *nix like) ( ./ Is used For OSX )
Once your loop is running in your prompt, select Recovery from the bootloader menu.
When recovery loads, you should Have an Offline Device. You can use ctrl+c to stop your script & see.
If this doesn't happen, Power Off and try again..
Un-plug your USB cable from the back of your phone & Plug it back in for it to Detect ADB Correctly!!! This is an important step. At this point you can adb devices to see if you can see your device and that it is in recovery mode.
Hit Volume Up + Power button to Bring up the Selectable Menu
Select Update.zip from the menu. (This will fail, but we already know that! Select it anyway).
adb push ota.zip /sdcard/update.zip (*OSX users add a ./ in front of all terminal commands please.)
This is Very important!! Have this Command ready in your prompt before applying update.zip again!!
This is the Command, We do not Push this Yet adb push update.zip /sdcard
Hit run update.zip, as soon as you see a Little Bar appear under the text, push Enter to execute the command in your prompt (adb push update.zip /sdcard )
In successful, you should see Clockwork Recovery & you Now have Su & Superuser.apk Installed! You can Now Reboot Your Phone into the OS to verify.
If unsuccessful, repeat steps 11 & 12.
