maybe I missed something, but was this bit removed from the process...
Testing superuser... uid=0(root) gid=0(root) groups=1003(graphics),1004(input),1007(log),1009(m ount),1011(adb), 1015(sdcard_rw),3001(net_bt_admin),3002(net_bt),30 03(inet),3006(net_bw_stats) uid and gid should both be 0. Are they? (y/n):

ok, I ran the package located at <REDACTED LINK, not the latest version and no credit given to XDA, root developer, or tool developer>
I get the uid/gid must be 0 dialog using that one, and both are 0. it completed, and stated that I was rooted. again, I am not...or the superuser apk in that one is messed up for me as well.
when I run root checker it says that busybox is not installed and that sudo is not found. I tried to install busybox but it failed. no root. I guess I am done messing with it until something else comes along or I get the urge to continue with this.
I included that link because it is included in the [RESOURCES] thread here in the dev forum...just thought id throw that out there before somebody freaks out. thanks for everyone's help.
