    "Running exploit in order to obtain root access..."

    I have uninstalled the app and reinstalled it to no avail..

    I've had it back in the past where I've had to reboot and then run Z4 a 2nd time on Froyo.

    Also make sure you have USB debugging enabled under development.

    How long are you letting it run? Sometimes would take a few minutes if I recall.

    What I do when I freshly install sbf 2.3.340 is install z4Root, reboot immediately, run z4Root. If I do this, it always works the very first time and it only takes about 30 seconds or so for z4Root do do its thing.
