    Hi I downloaded this program so I can remove unwanted apps like Moxier etc. Its telling me I dont have root privileges??
    I am pretty sure I debranded my handest then installed R2BA026. Then I installed a generic UK 2.1 - 2.0.A.0.504 Firware through SEUS.

    How do I get root access so i can use Titanium Backup??

    I think on mine what I did was find a "superuser" icon that was now listed in my apps. Its a gray colored android robot icon, sort of like a skull and crossbones. Select that, and then look for Titanium Backup in the list.

    Debranding is not the same as rooting. You need to root your phone if you want to use Titanium. Also, if you have root, you will lose it and need to root again after upgrading firmware.

    Nevermind, I posted this as a new thread, so I deleted the comment here. Thought it deserved its own thread.

    no matter what I do it just keeps looping

    I have replaced the 3 files with the ones in the tools zip. Even done the PDA thing and still it just keeps looping

    When I rooted mine I had to just sit and let it loop for a while. 10 or 15 minutes and suddenly I got "Your device is rooted".
