    I did it using z4root, I used the 'temporary root' option cuz I was a little scared to try the permanant. It seemed to work & after about 5 mins it said I had root. But at that point the whole phone got suuuuuper slow I mean like completely unusable. I tried to kill off some tasks but it didn't help. I rebooted and things are back to normal but I guess the root is gone. I heard some ppl used the permanent root on the citrus and it worked. so maybe i'll give it a shot.

    also, what app (or what method) should I use to delete or disable some of the garbage that comes with this phone? i want to free up space for apps that I will actually use.

    I need to delete the following junk:
    "My Verizon"
    Bing
    "Backup Assistant"
    City ID
    Facebook
    "File Manager"
    Bing Maps
    MobileIM
    MySpace
    QuickOffice
    Skype mobile

    Do NOT delete the bloatware! Either rename it with Root Explorer or freeze it with Titanium Backup Pro, trust me!
    Temporary Root is supposed to remove root after a reboot...that's what's "temporary" about it. Permanent root can still be unrooted but su will remain until you do so.

    The free version can be used to make backups but, the full version is required to freeze apps.

    ok cool I just bought the pro version. I froze a bunch of apps but they still show up on my app drawer?? do I have to reboot to see those changes? should I be using a different launcher?

    They usually disappear when frozen. You can try a reboot and see if that helps though, DEF won't hurt anything. Another launcher is up to you. Launcher Pro WILL allow you to hide apps though.

    Thanks. Yes after a reboot the frozen apps disappeared. I did wind up switching to Launcher Pro anyway because I liked the features.

    Now my biggest problem is trying to remap the "search" button to NOT try and load up Bing. I froze Bing so now hitting search just kind of reloads the shell. I want to make the "long-press" search button pop open a google search in Opera, eg. I tried to install LaunchKey but I can't get it to do anything.
