    Alright so i may just be overlooking some oblivious thing,im quite new to droid modding however ive rooted my droid and flashed my phone to squidly's v2.3.20 rom without issue however when i try an delete any factor installed app through the terminal emu on the phone, either through the shortcut commands programmed into the rom or the full command the emu tells me $permission denied.

    SU permissions are granted to terminal when im attempting this and
    my only though is that the 1 click root didnt fully work

    any insight on the issue, things to try, solutions, etc....?

    Haven't heard of that one...though I'm sure there are a few that I'm not aware of. The ONLY "one click" app I've yet to hear anything bad about is z4root. It has to be dl'd from xda now though.

    Could be, as you said, root was not completed. Hard to say being that I'm not very familiar with the method used. If it gives you an unroot option and you would like to try z4root, I can email you the apk for it.

    I'm not running squidly so I can't confirm, but I think you just need to remount the drive in rw
    Code:
    su
    mount -o rw,remount -t ext3 /dev/block/mmcblk1p21 /system

    I upgraded to 2.3.20.1 and the commands are working now, im guessing it did in essence the same thing that command would do in the process, thanks though good to know if the problem arises again

    Dorootwin_2.1.4 is a pretty good one click program that uses exactly the same instructions to root and unroot the phone that you find in many links. It runs a DOS bat file and uses ADB commands to do the work. You do not need the Android SDK on your computer, but you do need to have the proper drivers installed.

    I am not sure the Unroot part works, because when I tried it, it ran the root program instead of the unroot. The unroot.bat file calls the doroot.bat file with an argument to run the unroot portion of that file.
