    Glad it worked out for you. I too used the command line when I first rooted my phone last week, only then I found out about root explorer. Would have saved me a ton of typing. :p

    Hey, can anyone help me out. I'm looking to download .apk's from the official Motorola Droid 2.1 update, basically looking for some live wallpapers.

    The examples that I want are:
    Galaxy.apk
    Magic Smoke.apk
    Spectrum.apk
    Water.apk
    Waveform.apk

    I've tried searching google for these, but I cannot find them, if anybody can hook me up, that would be great. Thanks.

    The video is by far the best (and only) way you can get walked through the process, unless someone goes to your house...but please don't give anyone your home address, rooting is not THAT important. :p

    Rooting really won't make your phone any faster. Rooting just gives you admin privileges to your phone which allows you to uninstall Sprint's Bloat Ware.

    Would removing bloatware help it speed up because there's less stuff running in the background maybe?

    I always used a Task Killer, so I can't say if it helps the speed or not.

    Then I guess there's no point in rooting... I have plenty of space on my Moment, even with the stock apps... I hardly install any apps on this phone.. I was expecting it to get faster after rooting... :cool:

    Actually if you remove stock apps you won't be using, it will free up RAM, ergo a faster phone overall.

    Does this method work with windows XP?

    Or since drivers are different very often, will it not work?

    So if your Moment came with 2.1 preinstalled do you still have to do part 1?

    It would be a good idea to do it, just so that you have a fresh start.

    idk if you're trying this in recovery or connectbot, but i've never tried it in recovery and have never had a problem doing it in connectbot.

    but make sure you're paying careful attention to what you type in, especially the correct number of spaces for each command. if you do it correctly, you should see a # after each command you put in.

    Rooting shouldn't of caused that unless you deleted something that you shouldn't of.
