    Cant root. Get weird errors everytime i try.

    Hi there,
    So a week or so back i rooted my phone and flashed a rom ontop another rom and screwed up my phone. I was totally confused and posted it one here. You guys helped my through the process. I used odin to restore to default. Well now im back to stock no root eclair. I would love to be able to root again and flash superclean rom, but everytime i try to root i get random errors. I am a mac user and have been using the mac method. Everytime i try to root i either get this error in terminal, Bad CPU type in executable.
    Im confused as to why i get this now. I doing everything that i did last time to root, but this time it just doesnt work. Thanks for the help in advance!

    I just have no Mac experience and I don't think many people around here do. If you can get to a PC for a while we can straighten you out.

    The thing is, ive trying rerootin with both a mac and a pc :/ i really dont understand this. And i was on miui (gingerbread build) and flashed evil fascination. It gave an endless boot loop, so i flashed the original stock 2.1 firmware with odin and got it to work again. But now i cant seem to get it root again.

    I would check this thread out from XDA. It's for going back from Miui/CM7. AFAIK you can't go from an MTD ROM like MIUI or CM7 directly to ComRom or EF like you did. That thread should get you back on track and hopefully allow you to reroot.
    ROM: JT's CM7 b717
    Kernel: Tk-Glitch's V11.1 OC@1.4ghz
    Radio: EC09
    CwM: v4.0.1.0 (Blue)
    Launcher: LauncherPro+
    Google+

    I a also a Mac user and am studying up so I can use Heimdall since I don't have a PC at home. Have you checked out this link about Heimdall on xda? It's a rather long thread but I've been studying it and it has great info and other links. You say you've rooted before, did you use Heimdall? I've only used Odin but trying to get up the nerve to test this out.
