    Ok so today I was messing around with lock bot and somehow I seen root files for the phone,boot loader, and firmware files etc. Out of curiosity I opened Astro file explorer and it brings me to SD card but I hit the up button and found a lot of interesting files. I found the boot pics and browsed firmware files. Can someone confirm this with their Astro before I do something stupid. Maybe Caddyman or OTD have some thoughts on this but I would like help from everyone. I have 2.1 v3 leak. Thnx

    Yeah, you can see different files like that, but without root you can't do anything with them...if that's what your asking/saying.

    Try to delete a stock application, let me know if it works =D

    they are the root files for the phone. if you are rooted you can use root explorer or something similiar to remount the files as read/write rather than read only and delete them. meaning you can delete stock apps that you dont want, delete ringtones and wallpapers that come on th phone that you dont want etc.
