    A friend of mine downloaded that one touch rooting app from the market. He did it step by step as it says and now when his phone boots up it force closes calendar, market and all. Does it just need a higher kernal or what? It also wont let him log into his google acct. either

    Have your friend come to the forum. I would honestly suggest rooting it himself. But we can fix it by having him go into recovery and installing thr rom/ or new froyo and wiping data and cache.

    It's nice that this 'one step' root app came out, but I would always prefer to do it the old fashioned way. And funny that it's out right after the new DMUpdater app that was leaked got broken up. I smell something odd.

    But no matter, it will soon be obsolete since the official FRG01B for the A855 is rolling out this week(?).
