    So I have tried using z4 root but it takes forever loading and doesn't do anything and sometimes it just turns d screen white any help? I have tried doing temporary root and it does the same. I have tried akaskrilers method and when selecting sd card.zip it says e signiture failed

    Why do you want to root?

    If your purpose is to put froyo and themes on then use the all in one 2.9 package via ODIN. It will root you during the process. Very simple.

    Use SuperOneClick from XDA Developers.

    You can do everything here or you can go here for faster responses to questions. Good luck is easy.

    Can't over clock until official froyo is out so the devs can put out a new kernel.

    Yes can you voodoo, but make sure you read read and read about it. A key to remember is that if you flash a voodoo kernel you can't just flash a non voodoo kernel over it.

    Forgive me if mistaken but I thought super one click you still needed to use a computer. Do you not have access to a pc? Using Odin for the first time is the easiest to do, you're rooted and have froyo.
