Rooting gives you
1. Speed
2. You can install apps to memory card
3. You can have fullproof backup your phone will never get bricked
4. You can remove stock applications

When you Connect the phone tap the first option it will search for hardware when it asks for hardware location direct it to where you've downloaded your drivers

after i root my phone, i installed root explorer, but it says

Root Explorer has not managed to obtain root access because of issues with Superuser, this often happens...........

Hi,
1) I am totally a newbie to the androids and Xperia X8..
But I have been doing loads of searching to find out about rooting..and gotta tell ya this is the best thread I have seen thus far on how to do it..And I am planning to do it ..
In some others, I have read that there's quite some risk involved when rooting your device that you might brick it..I just wanted to make sure whether this is true and do I have that kinda risk involved when following this method as well?

2) I am currently using a 4GB class 4 SD card. Is that good enough to do the rooting?

3) Will the applications and the contacts that I have currently installed in the phone be deleted after the rooting?

4) After doing it, Will I be able to unroot it? And how?

I know that this thing is a bit lengthy :P..But I hope someone can help me with these questions.
thanks in advance

Thanx mate..
And I would like to know another thing..after rooting the phone, just in case, if SE released a android 2.2 update for X8, will I have to unroot the device before updating or can I update with the device being rooted?

Hmmm, i had the issue with "Waiting for device..." too. What solved that issue was the remounting the sdcard for windows, like, re-plug the usb cable and on the confirmation dialog choose Connect your phone, then unplug the cable from phone. Plug it back in and choose Charge phone. Then try rooting it

Default app2sd Problem

Hi there! Can you tell me what I'm doing wrong - I rooted the X8 but when installing app2sd :

c:\adb>adb shell
$ su
su
# sh /sdcard/app2sd.sh
sh /sdcard/app2sd.sh
sh: Can't open /sdcard/app2sd.sh
#

I have placed the app2sd.sh into /sdcard so whats the problem ?
Thank you!

Lion, we used this since 01.08.2011. And it worked perfect even from back there. And since I'm happily using root explorer, titanium, scriptme and other applications that would have shouted at me if I didn't have root, I really doubt I have to replace anything.
