I've got one of the PmOS ones that just came out, but that sounds familiar. When I boot the phone, the password is hidden, and the keyboard looks a certain way. When I try su or sudo bash or whatever, the keyboard looks completely different, and of course, nothing appears on screen when typing a password in the terminal.

So, make sure to update the OS? Well...the whole reason I wanna be rooted is so I can run a little program that'll randomize my MAC address. The whole point is to get that running before I connect to WiFi, otherwise it's moot.

So just download the update on a USB, right?
