    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.

    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.

    Still having trouble with email

    Let me first admit that I am a noob and this is my first root. (so speak slowly)So far, I love the rom, with the exception of the email issue.I followed the instruction above, and did get the icons back. However, now the icons only take me to the "set up" screen. When I attempt to re-enter my email information (since I tried to set it up before) it tells me the account has already been added. How do I get around this?I have gone into settings > accounts, and removed these accounts. I then restarted just for good measure. The accounts are no longer listed in the My Accounts feature, nor are they listed in Settings > accounts. Just when I think I have it beat, I go back to the email and the setup screen appears. I begin to enter my information, and again I am told the accounts are already listed.Any help with this would be much appreciated.Thanks

    I didn't have to re-enter my email info when I did this. Just a thought but maybe you didn't clear your cache/data/factory reset? Not sure though, I would let an expert help you out.
