    I was able to figure it out.

    But my market app did not change at when i upgrade to 2.2. Does anyone know how to change this? I also want to change the Metro Boot screen to something else. Does anyone know how to do this?

    install a2sd and you will have tons of memory, but you have to be on 2.2 or higher.

    you can delete easy wifi. you don't need it to use the wifi. it really is just a waste of space and battery use.

    I couldn't buy the paid version of Root Explorer and I don't know of a free version, so I'm using Root App Remover. It won't allow me to uninstall the "user apps" Like Loopt, Uno, Virtual Card, Pocket Express and My Extras (Which is the one I hate the most!) Any guidance would be aprreciated.

    Also, more importantly, since the 2.2 update I noticed that the older versions of some things on my phone are still there (Calendar, contacts, camera, dialer, etc.) ..in Root App Explorer, for example, it shows two Camera settings, one being the older v1.3 and the newer version on top of it, v2.2.2. Is it safe to remove the older versions of these things?

    I apologize in advance if these questions have been already answered or in a different forum.

    PM, if possible, but I will try to keep track of the thread for an answer.

    go to your phone browser, or just download 4shared, the app (or internet) and type in "gingerbreak" and download v.1.2 and see what happens. if it still says a error than go to settings->application->and make sure the first option is checked "Uknown sources"
