Now before anyone says anything about the Cliq XT, I sort of have a small collection of legacy Android devices.

Now I am following these instructions:

WARNING: ROOTING THE MOTOROLA CLIQ XT WILL VOID THE WARRANTY.
You will need ADB on the computer to root the Motorola Cliq XT. Follow the Android SDK guide, to get the ADB shell on the computer.
Download rageinthecage-arm5, the Motorola Drivers & the Superuser package:
rageagainstthecage-arm5: Download
Motorola 4.9.0 device Drivers: Download
Superuser package: Download
md5: bac5e3393c0e91b1be2b3cae2f80c68f
Install the Motorola device drivers.
Unzip rageinthecage-arm5 & the Superuser package to the same folder as adb (the /platform-tools folder within the Android SDK folder).
Connect the Motorola Cliq XT to the computer via USB.
On the computer, open terminal and run the following commands:
adb push rageagainstthecage-arm5.bin /data/local/tmp
adb shell
chmod 755 /data/local/tmp/rageagainstthecage-arm5.bin
/data/local/tmp/rageagainstthecage-arm5.bin
Once the exploit finishes, in terminal, run the following commands:
exit
adb kill-server
adb start-server
adb shell
NOTE: You should see a "#". If you see a "$", then the exploit didn't work, please repeat steps 4 & 5.
mount -o remount,rw -t /dev/block/mtdblock1 /system
exit
adb push su /system/xbin
adb shell chmod 4755 /system/xbin/su
adb push Superuser.apk /system/app
The Motorola Cliq XT is now rooted, please continue to the next section
Found here: http://wiki.cyanogenmod.com/index.php?title=Motorola_Cliq_XT:_Full_Update_Guide

Now after step 6, I "adb kill-server" "adb start-server" and I get the $ instead of #

The more I try it, the more it tells me to f off. I try to adb shell, cd /data/local/temp and get "permission denied"

Then I try to push "rageagainstthecage.bin" to / and it says permission denied read-write only file system.

Any ideas? Android 1.5 SUCKS.

Thanks.
