Just wanted to say thank you!
Just successfully rooted the phone FRG22. Superuser is available. Now the phone is super sluggish and market will not load.
What should I do? Do I need to reflash the phone? Reflash back to stock?
i was sort of under the impression that rooting the phone would unlock some more features within the OS that would be available readily. but it seems more like rooting allows for downloading apps that require root to do things that unrooted phone apps cannot. is this the case ?
so, aside from looking for apps in the market that will enable additional features like terminal, cpu clock speed, etc. what can i do with the phone OS itself that i couldn't do before rooting ?
You can change how everything looks by theming, you can overclock, wireless tether, change baseband, change rom ...
Another thanks goes to MotoCache1 et al, I am now rooted on stock frg22d with a nandroid backup and wireless tether. Just try to stop me now!
anyone know of an easy way to root with a mac? I was rooted until this morning with easy root but I got the "system update" message. I had a clockwork recovery thinking it would protect me but it didnt. Now im sitting here with a stock droid and cant do anything fun with it. Also I still have superuser installed but i'm no longer rooted, cant figure that one out.
