    Still have the ninja? What are you talking about. What is this "ninja" you speak of?

    I remember a similar thread back when the Sholes/DroidMod thing was going on... seemed that after returning to "stock", the ninjas were still there but eventually disappeared after a few reboots. I didn't follow the thread to see if anyone came to any logical conclusions, but the thread may still be there at droidmod...

    well, i rebooted 5 times, then i reloaded the update, wiped the memory. that damned ninja is still staring me down. i was overjoyed when i first saw him, but then when i tried root apps, i was sorely disappointed.

    please ... any expert advice will be appreciated.

    I too have the pesky ninja in my app drawer...i forced the update and the little guy was there. I even did a factory reset hoping that would kill him off. What now?

    From what i remember, the su was installed through sdk right? So i would think that it would have to be removed the same way? Being that you forced updated it and not ota, you may not have completely gotten rid of root. i would root again, either removing or not installing su ( if possible), and then force load the official 2.1. just a s.w.a.g

    if i root, i'll damn sure not go back to this stock rom. cyanogen's latest roms smokes this thing up and down. i guess that's what i'm about to investigate. i'm so let down. this thing lags just as much as 2.0.1. i wish i just never updated.

    Do a Google search for "how to remove Superuser.apk" and you'll see several threads on how to do it. Basically, you have to root your phone again and remove the Superuser.apk using the terminal emulator app found in the Market.

    I requires a series of commands that need to be followed precisely in order to remove the Ninja. Prior to the 2.1 upgrade, I decided to revert back to the 2.0.1 original rom. After rebooting, I too noticed the Ninja character. I was able to remove it and updated to 2.1 this morning.

    The app doesn't do anything now that you are unrooted. However, I removed it just in case I need to take my phone in to Verizon and they by some random chance happen to notice the app, which could trigger them to void my warranty. It is a longshot that would happen, but I wanted to make sure it didn't.

    If you already on 2.1, not sure if you can still root or you'll have to wait for an update.zip that roots your phone.

    Good luck to you.
