I went under Settings, Accounts & Sync, and then under "Manager accounts" i see my gmail account. When I click on it, it saids "Remove Account". When I click on it, it saids "This account is required by some applications. You can only remove it by reseting the phone to factory settings." Ok I did that, but because its a rooted phone, it takes me some weird screen. I do not want to restore it to original settings, I want to keep it rooted. I have no idea how to root a phone (friend gave it to me like that). HOw do I go about deleting my google/gmail account without restoring the entire phone and losing its "rooting"? ... Is there a way?. If not, oh well, restore to regular settings.. but how? thanks.
