    This bit is confusing for people who don’t run commands from command line daily.

    After entering each command we press enter. So
    6) adb rootadb shell id
    and then we press enter? Now do we see

    at console after that , or it is what we suppose to enter ?

    I meant this line replacing html brackets with [ ]
    [if uid = 0 then continue, otherwise start again]
