    Hi,

    too much games or apps installed in your phone.
    you need to create space by removing apps or games from your phone.

    cheers :)

    hi,

    uninstall and re-install root explorer
    when you launch root explorer the next time you must give the root explorer app root access make sure you <enable><remember> then <allow> so it will always give root explorer access.

    cheers :)

    Gabeyong, THANX A MILLION. GINGERBREAD 2.3 is supercool stable & very fast on X8. I almost resold off this phone within 3 months of buying as I was frustrated with lack of Market access and Eclair.
    SE are #$#? X8 with Donut or Eclair is like Lada engine in a Sportscar.

    But last week took courage and rooted my X8. Yesterday after many unsuccessful attempts at xrecovery boot up I'm the proud owner of an X8 running Gingerbread 2.3.
    ENTER AT YOUR OWN RISK But you can't fail if you wont even try.

    Thanks to many posts of blessed souls like yourself and others on XDA and Youtube. Glad to help out any poor souls who were suffering like I did over past 5 months.

    all of you who rooted ur device, i believe you observed that u are prompted to install busybox. can anyone tell, What does it do exactly, for me, as a user? if i uninstall it, do i lose root priveleges? i know it is used by developers for "developing"... im not creating anything, nor writing codes. busybox verified if my device is rooted and since then it just ...sits.

    busybox is required for xRecovery to work... if you remove or uninstall it xrecovery will stop working but root remains.

    cheers :)

    Just install PC Companion for your X8 and the required drivers will be installed together with the software.

    download from here

    This was posted earlier in this thread, but I will just add it again. I had problems with my Windows 7 64 bit PC rooting this phone I had to do it from my XP 32 bit pc to get it to work. The driver for the phone for windows 7 is on it, it just won't work properly on a 64 bit system. Someone had suggested that the version of Java was the problem, but as I am testing 32 bit versions of Firefox I have both the 32 and 64 bit versions installed. Best bet find someone with a 32 bit computer and do it from there.

    Now I'm having a problem getting into xRecovery. All the files are where they are supposed to be everything is working like it's supposed to except that when I turn the phone on and press the back button repeatedly the phone just continues to boot. Been back to the system/bin folder several times the files that are supposed to be there are there. Any suggestions?

    Never mind recopied the files again and everything is working now. Thanks to all involved in the posts and development of the OS!!!!!
