    On what version, if 2.1 which I'm guessing so as I posted the X10root.apk for 1.6 for you, see Rooted 2.1

    The apk should work on 1.6, it's tried and tested. If 2.1 the only way at the moment is with the SuperOneClick program that runs on the PC.

    Not a clue, never had any issues with it at all. What firmware do you have?

    Should work fine then. Try installing SuperUser first (from Market) and try again. Like I said, it's tried and tested and never had any issues with it myself.

    All I can suggest is that you have a read of this thread - Exploid One Click .apk Root - to see if anyone else has had the same issues.

    Turn off your wireless, and BT just to be safe, and try again.

    Nice 1! I think it's worth as I like to mod my phone and remove the Moxier crap along with a few other apps, plus as you've figured some apps require you to have a rooted phone, so it's your choice if you want to or not.
