I am rooted! That thread was exactly what I needed. It took me a while to read through everything and get all the files. Once I got the concept of what to do I was able to load the rooted recovery for 2.3.6 with baseband x.FF27.
First thing I did was disable the Boost ID application (same as Sprint ID) and the Boost Zone. Other than that, I'm not to sure on what else I can disable to lower the Android System use. Any tips on this?
