    I was rooted with " DOWNLOAD EE14 ROOTED VERSION WITH CWM AND HROARKERNEL" some time ago and then today I tried to root it to gingerbread using "DOWNLOAD EJ06 Gingerbread Rooted Image with CWM5 made by Chin Checka" but it didn't upgrade... It shows it's still at 2.2.2

    What do I do to upgrade?

    Try the odin image that Kouma made then root it with Shabby's exploit

    Does it matter what I used last to root/unroot? I used E14 stock last to un root and it didn't seemto do anythimg.

    What about the boot file? Also, I tried differnt things and nothing worked...

    Tried EJ06 Gingerbread Rooted Image with CWM5 made by Chin Checka - didn't change android version... stays 2.2.2

    Tried: EJ06 Gingerbread Stock Image made by Koumajutsu - didn't change android version - stays 2.2.2

    Tried: EE14 STOCK VERSION to go back to normal non rooted and nothing happened...

    you need to use all three files, boot, phone and pda. Follow the instructions in the Odin thread. Not following the instructions will always result in epic fail

    Just root it yourself. Use the exploit by Shabby. Then install latest cwm (don't forget stick.zip) then install ctmod. Good learning experience as well

    You really only need CWM to install CTMod. the installer for CTMod formats the /system partition to ext4 and completely replaces it with it's own rooted version

    you can't install system apps

    you gotta use root explorer or something similar and move them to /system/app

    or you can just install a gallery or music player off the market if you don't want to mess with anything

    really dont know why Gallery was removed. Pretty essential. its not like a g1 where the 3d lagged.
    Anyways the easiest way i put it back in is using 7zip..i put it in the rom zip that what i dont have to do extra stuff like r/w using root explorer or some other app...quickpic just pictures are good but they dont act as default gallery viewer for lots of other apps (i.e. launcher pro)
