    Many(along with me) had failed to root their GT540 running 2.1 with the previous One-Click Rooter.. Don't feel down, now we can root too! With just one-click! This one is more simple... ;)

    -Enable USB Debugging Mode, Allow Mock Locations & Unknown Sources...
    -Download "z4root" from the Market...
    -Open the app, click the 'root' button...

    You are done! After some seconds the phone will restart on it's own & yay! It's rooted! :D

    ***z4root has been removed from Market, check post #12 for apk***

    It doesnt work for me. It says USB debugging mode must be activated even though it already is. Pretty frustrating

    Try this: Disable USB Debugging Mode, restart, enable USB debugging mode and then try to root again...

    Download "Titanium Backup" from the market... You have to use that to get rid of those shits...

    Hi Nirob..

    Before I try this, can you please let me know what the benifits are if I was to root my phone... I think it will allow me to install apps on my SD card is this correct? and if so it that all I need to do or will I have to download another app to do the SD card install? As you mighjt guess I'm new to this so any info you can give me will be a great help.

    Also how do you Enable USB Debugging Mode...

    Thanks, ACD1055

    Hi! Welcome to the forum! :D

    By rooting, you can remove the bloatware that carriers put inside(Use Titanium Backup, available in the Market), modify your system, replace/remove system apps, change bootanimation etc. Some apps need root access also...

    Yes, you need to be rooted & install apps2sd(check here: 1click app2sd now includes 1 click root - Android @ MoDaCo for instructions & solution to problems) to install apps in SD...

    To enable USB Debugging Mode, go to Settings>Applications>Developement and tick USB Dubugging Mode, untick to disable...

    Don't hasitate to ask for help if you need, we'll try our best to help.. :D

    I have just looked at the thread you kindly posted. am I correct in thinking that all software I need is in the zip file to root and app2sd? It looks like I need to make files and change the size of the SD card to FAT32 do I need software of this? your post mentions Titanium Backup whats this?

    I only have a 2GB card (it came with the phone) is this ok to root and app2sd?

    I tried to download the user guide from the link but I have to register so I'll do that later (in work at the min)

    Thanks again

    Ok. I have set up my SD card to FAT32 etc following the how to guide and minitool but now I'm stuck..
    I've downloaded the autoroot app2sd file and double clicked the batch file selected 2 for english and them there is a big list;

    r. root the phone
    u. unroot the phone
    1 standard app2sd data
    2 standard app2sd cache
    3 standard app2sd appdata
    4 full app2sd
    5 remove
    6 quite and restart the phone
    7 back to language
    8 check app2sdapp2sd
    9 exit

    which do I pick, I want to root and start saving to my sd card. so is it R to root?? and then 4 for the app2sd???

    once I have done this should I see a new app on my phone so i know it's worked?

    Untick USB Debugging mode.. then restart... Now, Tick Unknown Sources, USB Debugging Mode, and Allow Mock Location... now try if it works...

    I recommend z4root to root GT540, i saw some guys having trouble rooting with the "r" option... After you have rooted, 4 for installing apps2sd & then 6 to restart your phone... if it installed correctly you'll see the option "Apps2SD" in Settings>Applications

    Keep in mind that you can't remove your SD card after installing apps2sd.. if you remove it, or error occurs related to SD card, then you are screwed...

    Where can I find z4root, do you know? I did try to click on the file you attached but it said no application found and I have searched the market place without luck.

    Do I need to root my phone to run app2sd? I

    I think androidforums.com is having problems... i was starting a thread, tried to upload an apk but failed 3times... Google removed z4root from the market.. sorry, i don't know where you can download z4root.. i installed it when it was in Market, and the apk i uploaded is from my system...

    Yes, you have to root your device to install apps2sd... you can't install apps2sd if you are not rooted...

    I mentioned above what you can do when you are rooted... It's gives you full access to your system... You can modify you system, remove carrier crapwares, remove system apps, replace system apps with newer versions etc.. Apps like Root Explorer, Titanium Backup, Apps2SD requires root...

    I think you'll need to tick the "Apps2SD" options in Settings>Applications... if it's ticked then don't need to do anything...

    Cheers for the reply.

    I guess I'll have to search for z4root and install this then.

    I have done a google search and it returns hits but I'm always a little worried about downloading from unknown sites.

    [FONT=&quot]I can’t find z4root anywhere, well anywhere I think it’s safe to download from so I think I’ll try the option for rooting above by selecting R in the auotroot app2sd file .. How will I know if my phone has been rooted, will a new app show anywhere or do I need to download another app afterwords to explore and control my phone, if so which app should I download?[/FONT]

    [FONT=&quot]When you say once it’s been done don’t remove your SD card or your screwed.. what will happen will I break my phone or the SD card? if I wanted to remove the sd card for any reason would just need ot unroot the phone and then it would be safe?

    Hi,I think I have rooted my phone as I now have the superuser icon.. not sure what to do with it but it's there.. I'm having trouble installing the app2sd as each time I do it my phone won't work it keeps coming up with error messages and saying foce stop.

    any ideas,I really want to be able to save to my sd card.

    All done and rooted now so managed to get rid of lot of bloatware and apps i dont need, used titanium backup to do it which is simple enough. Just wondering what else i can now do as i cant seem to find how to change boot screen and other little bits like that, do i need more root apps to mess with it more?

    Thanks for help again nirod
