    So I've heard the Droid Charge has already been rooted using Z4Root.. It's always nice to see a device rooted before the official release! dancedroid

    Yeah, Samsung released the source early, most likely as part of the hype-wagon hehe

    All froyo phones can be rooted using z4root. It's such a general exploit, which is what makes it so great, and if it doesn't work, use SuperOneClick with psneuter.

    With all the delays in releasing the phone, there may yet be a custom ROM ready by the time the Charge is available to the public...

    I hope there will be something custom, odd that XDA-Developers site has no Droid Charge section yet. I mention that because its where a large portion of the talent seems to cross post their work.

    Well, I added my voice to a thread there questioning why no Charge section had been set up. Hope you do too.

    Actually, they do have a section on XDA for the Charge. It's under Verizon Droid Charge. I originally was looking for Samsung Droid Charge and Droid Charge.

    Standard browser blocked my ginger break down load,installed dolphin and downloaded the program. Installed the program from the down loads folder while causing through Astro. Ran Ginger break. Whole process took less than 5 min

    Sweet! Let us know if the phone is snappy, if it gets snappier when you remove some bloat and if the screen is just as bright as they're saying it is.

    Glad to hear Ginger Break worked. I was just toying around with the phone at a VZW store and tried to use Z4root. It did not force close, but it would also not root the phone. I may have to go back and try Ginger Break :).

    Overall I liked the phone itself, sleek design. I am just not sure if I like the samsung overlay. I am coming from a D1 and enjoy the "pure" android feel. With root a lot can be done to get rid of touchwiz.

    What version of andriod is your phone using (where ginger break worked)? The demo I was using had 2.2.1...wondering if that could make a difference.

    You can get rid of much of Touchwiz by using another launcher...GoLauncher is my fave at the moment...

    I don't think rooting itself will increase speed, just maybe free up memory. You would need a different kernel to increase speed.

    You are correct. Let's hope project voodoo does their magic quick to conjure a ext4 lagfix and screen recalibration..

    I think they are still trying find a way to root with Ed2, the newest OTA update.

    It will be interesting to see if they can tweak this device to make it faster than Fascinate. I doubt it though, since it has the same parts.
