    How to add stock email support to Steel Droid 2.0

    1) Obtain the Deodexed install from RootzWiki. Link in the Steel Droid sticky.
    2) Extract the zip file (I downloaded mine to the PC and unzipped it there).
    3) Open the extracted folder, then navigate to /system/app.
    4) Locate the BlurEmail.apk file (not to be confused with blur_email.apk) and copy it.
    5) Paste the file to the SD card or internal storage.
    6) Using a file explorer (such as Root Explorer),copy the file from where you put it and paste to the /system/app directory (may need to mount as RW first).
    7) Set the permissions to rw-r--r-- (the top line has read and write and the bottom two have read only) by long-pressing and selecting "Permissions" (this is if you use Root Explorer, other programs may va.ry). Make sure owner has Read and Write, while Group and Others have Read only.
    8) Reboot phone, and enjoy!

    Edit: alternatively, you can adb push the file to /system/app. Will yield the same result.

    Note: this also applies to Steel Droid 3.0, but I'm unsure how to change the title of this thread...

    Here is a link to the file that I pulled out of RootzWiki zip.

    Just download and start at step 5.- BlurEmail - download.
    This will give you Exchange email as well.

    What does mount as RW mean?

    mount as READ/Write
    If you get "ES File Explorer" from the market (free) you do not need to worry about that.

    Check your settings, you need to check both of the root settings options.

    Open your "ES File Explorer" app. now click on the button with the 4 little boxes. This opens the settings dialog for an app.
    scroll down until you see "root settings" and check both boxes.

    Now hit the home button and you are all set.
