bin4ry you su binary is incorrect and the exe are don't func sometime
i've atached a zip with a running su binary and without the exe

you need to to the manual way but it's verry easy.
you can use bin4ry first part of her manual but in the second he has make some Mistakes. please type in the secon part:
adb shell
-> # cd /data/local/tmp
-> # mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock0 /system
-> # cat su > /system/bin/su
-> # cat superuser.apk > /system/app/superuser.apk
-> # chmod 06777 /system/bin/su
-> # chmod 777 /system/app/superuser.apk
-> # reboot
after rebooting you have root

try the manually way
but it seems that even if that all wil work
the su binary is incorrect so you become an error after typi ng su

Exactly...
I'm not sure which su binary to use?
Current says this:
$ su
link_image[1665]: 2263 could not load needed library 'libbinder.so' for 'su' (load_library[1011]: Library 'libbinder.so' not found)CANNOT LINK EXECUTABLE
