    uhm hi. so I rooted my phone, got rid of a few pesky trial apps and want it unrooted again... since, I don't see the point of keeping it rooted. I've followed your guide, but like your guide says the superuser warning comes up. Do I flat out ignore it and wait, or should I click the ok button? Thanks!

    another thing: If I keep it rooted and 2.1 comes out, does it unroot by itself or does it stay rooted? or.. am i stuck in 1.6 till unrooted? Thanks again.

    Ah, thanks very much Suhel. I guess I'll just wait for Eclair then, as improbable as it may be. How's Eclair on X8 by the way? How much better is it than Donut? Anything new that's worth getting excited or at least happy over? Sorry for the questions, I just don't think I'll be getting Eclair in a long, long time (maybe even past the phone's life cycle, judging by my country's tech standards). I don't mind the wait, as I usually use phones as long as they're usable and not broken yet. But I'm curious what Eclair does for X8. ^_^

    You can get update even if its not available in your country...

    Secondly,eclair is okish apart from the browser and launcher pro its not worth updating..

    I'll rate the update 2.5 out of 5 :)

    Rooting for 2.1 just got out (over at XDA's). But from my understanding it's very difficult to do so we have to wait a bit more.

    Thx so far...there wont be any easier way to flash 2.1 in the future?

    This two versions seem to be too complicated to me...superoneclick would be perfect...

    Will this tool be released for 2.1, too? If it wont be released well than i need to do it "the easy way" :eek:

    both the methods are simple its just the text that makes it look complicated

    once you'll try it you'll find it relatively easy

    I think the phone should have come with 2.1 since India was one of those countries which got the upgrade first.. If it is not running 2.1, install SE update service and update your phone dude.

    PS. If u like playing with ur phone a lot, Root your phone and install add on's to enjoy using your device.Or buy a phone wic has 2.2 in it.. Galaxy 3 and Lg Optimus one ( know as lg Optimus P500 Thunder in India)
