    1. ThinkFree is embedded into your ROM, so everytime you factory reset your phone it will still be there. There are tutorials on how to remove certain apps with Root Explorer, I tried it myself and removed almost all of that preinstalled garbage I don't even use.

    2. Through Menu - Settings - Privacy.

    3. Try to install an app that requires root access, e.g. Root Explorer ;) Superuser will pop up and tell you the app requires root access.

    4. If your SGS feels laggy, I recommend you try the Voodoo Lagfix made by Supercurio (you can find it on XDA forums). It made my SGS go way faster. Also, you can try to download the JVH ROM, official, Samsung-made 2.3.3 Gingerbread for your device (for now available only with the NEE product code, which means, seeing you're from Portugal, you won't have Portuguese language after installing).

    But if you want the maximum from your phone, try Darky's ROM :)

    5. Odin is an application for flashing your phone and you should use it carefully :D

    6. 512 is total, the system takes some for its core processes, the rest is left for apps.


    If I'm wrong somewhere, somebody correct me :D

    Factory reset cannot undo root.
