    For anyone looking for a safe way to temporarily root your U8100, here is what I did:

    1) Install Terminal Emulator from market, and VISIONary via this site:
    19/Nov r14: VISIONary + one click root - Android @ MoDaCo

    2) Run VISIONary and do temporary root. Be careful not to do permanent root function. The remount /system read-write option also works.

    3) Open Terminal Emulator and type 'su'. Now do what you like as root!

    Root access doesn't work in adb yet for some reason. However using terminal on the phone is good enough for me. I specifically disabled unwanted bloatware:

    pm disable
    pm disable com.facebook.katana

    I have *not* tried VISIONary's permanent root option, so you are on your own. Always have a copy of your current kernel software available to reload in case of problems.
