I found this method here: how to root android 2.1 on Samsung Gem - JustAnswer The question was asked specifically for Verizon's Andoid 2.1 Gem. Has anyone tried this method? Success? Failure? I would really love to know--my GF absolutely hates her phone so I'd like to get in there, remove a bunch of the Verizon bloatware, upgrade Swype to the newest Beta, and run the V6 Supercharger script. Help is appreciated!
