    HELP! I tried to root...

    I d/loaded the update.zip file and apparently didnt save it to sd card...when I went through the steps to root everything went well I got to the menu and instead of having the option to "run" update.zip it gave me the option to "apply" update.zip.

    I rebooted my phone and everything came back to normal...except now I have a little triangle flashing in my notification bar...what the heck is it? ...and how do I get rid of it?

    look through your list of apps. If you have one that says superuser permissions, then you are rooted. If not, you probably just reupdated with the 2.0.1 update that motorola came out with that was uploaded onto your phone's memory card already. You need to replace that file with the root one on the memory card before you can do anything.

    You can update, but will lose superuser permissions. You will have to wait until a rooted version of the release is available to update.

    From what I know (i didnt stay rooted long since I don't understand linux lingo)

    Busybox is a must have and alot of people say to get the Android SDK (Software Development Kit).

    One cool app that you can only get with rooting is wifi tethering. Pretty much you can tether to anything that receives a wifi connection for free (using your unlimited data)
