    You are correct about rooting giving you full control over your device. For an unrooted android the user is just that, a user. For a rooted android the user is then more like an administrator. I myself have a Thrive not a Phoenix tho both devices are very similar. There is a hack for thunderg boards ( p500, p505, p506 ), that does allow for flash just not with the stock browser. In my opinion you didn't go wrong by rooting your phone. Hope I was of some assistance. Cheers.

    Please ask this in a new/different thread you will get more attention to your question being that Flash is not related to rooting directly. Thanks

    I'm not sure I did this right?? I have the 2.3.4 followed the steps, but at step 7 there was only one option "psneuter" I clicked root it ran, then I rebooted.
    there seems to be no difference. I still can't move apps to sd card. do I need to do it again? Am I expecting something it's not capible of doing?
    Also can't read the article at the blogtchblog link no longer availible.

    did superoneclick give you a success at the end? you may need to go thru the steps again.
    download a root required app and see if it works. i rec titanium backup, or es file explorer.
    if you using app manager that came with phone and are trying to move system apps, it wont do it. it may not let you move certain user apps either.

    I think it did. I was able to download and use the Titanium app. Only able to back up though. Still can't move apps to sd. it does give me option to freeze, but does that free up internal storage? I'm not sure, don't want to mess up. The only reason I'm doing this is the small amount of storage this phone has. Like to be rid of the att apps that are useless. And they keep updating to make it worse. Anyway thanks for the help I'll slowly get this somehow.

    Tit backup freeze won't free up space, but if nothing acts up it should be fine to uninstall.
