make a folder on your desktop and copy all content on your sdcard to the folder on your desktop, than boot into recovery and format the sdcard from there.

Okay thats good to do, and i recommend you to use cm6, which can be found in the thread "ultimate customization ascend", i love that ROM because its just like 2.2 update but 10 times better, i use to have cm7 but i found to many bugs such as MMS camera issues and stuff.

Ok, first time poster here. I was all set to root a phone for the first time in my life... then this damn update came out and apparently z4mod doesn't work with the 2.2 update that just came in (go me!! grrr)

So, to root my phone now, I just download that GingerBreak-v1.20.apk to my phone and run that, and I'll have a 2.2 rooted phone?

Default How do you delete all the programs the phone comes with?

Like the Boingo Wi-Fi, loopt, pocket express, and all the metro apps. Ive only had the phone for a month and these apps always open and interrupt everything and makes the phone slower and kills the battery. I'll try anything as long as it doesnt mess up the phone. I have it for metro btw

You can't without " rooting". Patrs of os are embedded. Go to market and get a good app killer to stop. Saves battery too.

Why is easy WiFi on the do not delete list. I see where it could be helpful, but you don't need it as the phone has its own wifi function. I deleted it off my Optimus but was wondering if there was some kind of reason to keep it on my wife's Ascend

Cry Tried updating to FROYO, and my phone wont turn on

I am sitting here, after rooting my phone, and then trying to update it to FROYO.....when I followed all instructions given to me, and now my phone won't go past the Cricket Wireless screen.....I have it on the....

Android system recovery <2e>
Android system recovery utility

reboot system now
apply sdcard:update.zip
wipe data/factory recet
wipe cache partition

Now I can't get to any other thing on my phone. I can't even download the recovery zip file to my sd card due to not having an adapter. Is there another way to get my phone turned on, so that I can at least put the recovery file on it? Please help. I am desperate. I really need my phone. Thank you.....

Unless you are willing to pay for the Pro version of Titanium Backup so that you can freeze the apps you don't want instead of uninstalling them I would recommend that you wait until the Froyo comes out and see if you still want to root....or you might want to rethink rooting at all.

It can be done successfully but again...unless you follow the instructions to a T you can have probs with your phone.

I hope this answers your question.
what does that cost?

gingerbreak will root anything up to 2.3.3. Rooting wont do anything but allow you root access to make changes that could lead to making it better

Default Unable to root phone - please help

Followed instructions to root phone, but it will not root.

Enabled USB debugging, downloaded z4root and saved it to phone, opened z4root and selected permanent root. Phone did not turn off and back on. Opened up z4root again and was not given the option to reroot, so I know it did not root. Tried removing and downloading again, but still did not work. Downloaded and used Dolphin Mini Browser and it still did not work.

I have searched threads for help, but didn't find anything.

Am I missing something? Any suggestions?

Thanks for your help!

Rooting is simply getting supervisor permission, or "root" permission. There are a lot of apps that require it.

It's like having an administrator account on windows, instead of a guest account.

Exclamation Can the Huawei Ascend for Metro PCS that has just been updated with Android 2.2 be rooted?

I have just updated my Huawei Ascend with Android 2.2 for Metro PCS via WiFi. Is there any possible way that it can be rooted or I can remove the pre-installed Metro PCS apps? I have tried to root the same way I did when I had 2.1 by using [z4root] but it did not work. Please help!
