    ok, got the terminal emulator.

    I did follow the instructions to root the phone. It said that the phone was rooted. I rebooted.

    When I run the terminal emulator and I type "su" or "sudo", it says that permission is DENIED!! WTF?

    Anyone? Help!

    re-do the root "update".

    the first time i did it, it didn't take for some reason. 2 times the charm

    oh and if one TerminalEmulator doesn't work, try another. i believe there are 3 or 4 options, none made for 2.0, so just try all until one works for you.

    Renaming the apps made them stay on in my phones 'hard drive', but they don't take up 'memory', as they never run.

    They don't sync, they don't run, they dont do anything except sit there in case I need to restore functionality sometime in the future.

    9 hours and no problems so far. Made calls, received emails, listened to mp3's, no problem.

    Thumbs down



    Used autostarts to remove all those damn apps that autorun on boot (sudoku... really?). Note: this didn't work with the su hack, you need the superuser hack from cyanogen ( http://www.droidforums.net/forum/dro...ruser-app.html )

    Sorry if this is a dumb question, but what does this line do? Why is it necessary?

    mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock3 /system
    also, in the terminal, how to recall the last command?

    Remounts the filesystem with the core os/application file in read/write mode. Normally, it is mounted in read only.

    I haven't tried, but dpad up should get you your last command.

    thanks for explaining that!

    by default I think the d pad is setup as your ctrl key. If I change the ctrl key to @ the dpad still acts like a ctrl key. It enters the following commands:
    ^[[C
    ^[[B
    ^[[D
    ^[[A

    what are these?
    (If I try to execute, it says "not found")
