    How do I remove the gmail account linked to the market on a handset.
    I have just given my DHD to my missus and I want to link her account.
    I know how to do it, change the RW on a certain file rename it etc, but what can I use to change the permissions as I don't want to pay for Root explorer just for this?
    Any help much appreciated.:cool:

    A factory reset will remove all data (including the account linked to the phone) but preserves root. Pretty much you'll have a rooted phone that asks you to sign in to an account (just like the first time you booted it up)

    Much simpler than changing file names, IMO :)

    Hope this helps!

    Wow that is mental, all you do is change the file extension then change it back.
    Even if you have backed every thing up surely that is much easier then resetting?

    E Strong file explorer is free and can root explore.

    I tried using file expert, got some force close errors so I rebooted but it just kept on rebooting.
    Tried pulling the battery carried on rebooting so I ended up flashing the ROM again.
    But thanks any ways mate,:)
