to get rid of cityID i did
you should have "#" showing now
That should be it. Im kind of new to rooting so this may not be the easiest way.
P.S. oops almost forgot, you have to have it mounted as a rw not a read only
mount -o,remount -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system

Not to revive an old thread or anything, but rooting: What can I do with it, besides custom ROM? I know it gives me su privileges...but what can I do exactly? Can I install a custom ROM on the devour? Are there any being made/completed for the devour? What can I remove safely from the device? Is there a list of all this that is compiled?

C:\devour_root isn't supported? Is that where you extracted it to? I mean...I used Linux for mine...so it was in a different folder...but yeah. Extract the zip in the first post to C:\ and make it C:\devour_root and try again...Make sure punctuation and whatnot is correct too...because I know with windows it can be a pain in the arse....

Hey, Im completely new to the whole rooting thing. So new to the fact that didnt know it existed until about 12 hrs ago. After reading a few posts about it im still unaware of a couple things. If i root my phone what will it allow me to do? Will i be able to get rid of motoblur and make the phone run faster/better battery life?

Karlito: you can remove a lot of apps. You CAN remove the motoblur home...however you need to have another home app installed first...that's the only thing you can delete from motoblur. Deleting other apps will help improve battery life. If you want...after work I can tell you what I've found is safe to remove.

Look for Titanium Backup in the market place. It's what I currently use to remove programs. As far as a decent home? I use the default stock one...but a lot of people use LauncherPro from what I understand. As for what you can remove....
Visual Voice Mail
Verizon Navigator GPS thing
Text to Speech
Virtual Private Network
Blur Home (Make sure before you do that, you install a new home app)
Voice Commands (Remove this one last, as you will need to do a battery pull after this one)
Do not remove ANY other Motoblur things, as your phone will spaz out and not work correctly.
I think that's all I've removed so far...Good luck

I really Hate Motoblur. and the rest of the VZ crap, that keeps auto starting. Advanced Task Killer is having a hard time keeping up.
