*The reason for this thread is that I had to take bits from different responses and piece them together to get this to work. Hope this helps someone as I wanted give back to the community. Again...all credit goes to the original contributors.*
*Theory - If you have a SD card installed when you download the file change the second command line to " cp /sdcard-ext/download/photon-torpedo.tar ." (note the "space" and "period" at the end)*
*Another hint - Determine the location of your /tmp/ folder prior to attempting root (download a file explorer from market) and modify as needed. Some have needed to use /data/tmp/ *
