    Just saw this in the market, anyone wanting to root your phone, look for 'Universal Androot' in the Android market.;)

    Not sure if it works, but just a heads up

    Probably The 1.6.1 - the newest version is still in beta test - but it works

    Ok, I found out how to download the app. Now, my question are...

    What does "superuser" mean?
    What exactly is a "soft root"?
    Will my phone fully be rooted by using this app?
    What does "generate log in/sd card" mean?
    Has anyone had any issues with this app?

    Worked GREAT on my htc hero on 2.1 ... you can UNROOT the phone using option in SAME PROGRAM which ALSO works GREAT!

    Flash a rom? Get root only apps? The sky is the limit. What do you want to do with your phone, now that it is rooted?

    Well, I tried booting into recovery and then pressed home. After that, it went black and then showed a pic of a phone with a red triangle over it. It basically froze my phone. I had to take the battery out in order to get the phone to power back on. It still works, but now I'm scared to try anything else.

    sounds like you need to flash a recovery image... Maybe try the rom manager app to get it flashed?

    I downloaded 'Rom Manager' from the market. It says that I need to flash clockwork recovery mod before I can do anything else. I tried and it keeps saying that an error occurs. Does this mean that I'm not actually rooted even though the Universal Androot app says I am?

    I did everything in the video and the same thing keeps happening. It keeps telling me that there is an error when I try to flash clockwork mod...

    Are there any settings I need to configure in order to get this to work? Come on guys, someone's gotta know why this isn't working for me.

    Try Removing ROM Manager And Reloading it.
    things will get a bit more difficult (out side my comfort zone) if you don't have it.

    Using ROM Manager, flash a clockwordmod recovery. That fixed my red exclamation error message thingy.

    That's where I'm having the trouble. I'm trying to flash and it keeps giving me an error message. I'm gonna try uninstalling Rom Manager and reinstalling. Hope it works.
