Was my slide rooted?
about 7 months ago i bought a fairly new but used mytouch slide from a pawn shop. after christmas i dropped the phone in snow and it broke. i recently got a mytouch 4g and im noticing there are a few things i could do on my slide that i cant do on my 4g.
the first thing i noticed was that i can not unlock my 4g by pressing the menu button. ever since i got my mytouch slide i was able to unlock the phone just by pressing the menu button.
another thing i would always do on my slide was take screen shots using the app "screenshot". i downloaded the app "screenshot" onto my 4g and it would not work.
my slide ran 2.1 but the android market on my slide is exactly like the market on my 4g with 2.2. (i dont know if rooting does this or if there was an update that did this for everyone).
but i never rooted my slide and it still did all that stuff after i did several factory resets. can anyone tell me if my slide was rooted? im thinking about rooting my 4g
