"ADB Shell" gives me "#" instead of "$" when rooting MyTouch Slide, why??

trying to root my MyTouch 3G Slide. Ive tried various methods from different sites to do it but they all seem to come down to running something called "ADB Shell". On the screenshots, it seems to always give you a $ prompt. When I do it, I get a # prompt. Also, anything I type after that is just repeated back to me along with another # prompt. I find where other people get the same problem but cant find any solutions with it. What am I doing wrong?
