    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!

    Yes, I tried this - several times, in fact. I even had a friend remote into my PC and try it as well, thinking maybe I had a typo or something. It doesn't work.

    Judging by the driver link, this is most likely a manual rooting method for a Galaxy S device. Probably a Fascinate or Captivate. But I've been searching for a method to root and/or upgrade this for literally days, and I can't find anything yet. Hopefully someone comes up with a permanent root/upgrade method for this device soon. It's painful to use with eclair.

    So far, I've got nothing...

    The Verizon version of this phone is virtually useless without having this bloatware removed. Literally, I can install maybe 4 applications before having storage issues. Also, the pre-loaded version of Swype is atrocious. It needs to be removed so that the latest Beta can be installed.
