    Sorry about the newbie question but I haven't been able to figure this one out yet. When I'm playing MP3's using Mediascap (only player I've tried) the player stops whenever the phone goes to lock. I have my phone set for a 30 screen fade and then it locks soon after that. This means I have to poke the phone every 30 seconds to keep the song playing. I did a search and found something about adding the application to the task killer ignore list by doing a long press on the app and selecting ignore, however when I long press Mediascap I simply get a trash can popping up. Any help would be appreciated.

    You have to long click when you have the task killer open, i recommend deleting the task killer anyway. The phones perfectly fine without it.

    Do yourself a favor and download Mixzing from the market.
    It's free, an awesome music player and has a widget.
    I use it every single day.

    Thanks - I just deleted Task Killer and that solved the problem. Another reason not to use Task Killer.

    Hi.

    You don't long press the app shortcut, you run the app, open your task killer where you should now see it running, long press on the entry and select ignore...

    It does yes which is why I suggested the one click method, as you can unroot and delete the app. Face your fears. :p

    This and that.
    Here
    Once you've rooted, you need to install the following...

    Superuser Permissions
    BusyBox
    TypeFresh
    AndExplorer (required for TypeFresh)

    ...then you can change your fonts, unroot, and uninstall all of the above, if you want to.

    That's one way I guess, but wouldn't worry too much.

    I would install it, it's brought up further in the thread that installing it has helped, or you can leave it and come back to it I suppose. So you're now rooted, how does it feel. :D

    Should do.
    Are you sure?, I've just clicked backup but it doesn't give an option which to backup to and does it to the SD card.

    Not sure what it does, but if you root it seems to be essential for some programs.

    EDIT: :D

    Now you can install "ShootMe" and post some screenshots. :)

    LOL. :D Basically the gui of the phone which includes things like your statusbar, menu icons ect, all those can be changed by editing your framework-res.
