To root your phone is a very simple process and those of us around long enough will recognize this.
you will need adb
and download the following file: Download
1) unpack the contents of the above zip into c:/android-sdk/tools/
2) open a command terminal and go to c:/android-sdk/tools
3) type - adb push su /data/local
4) type - adb push Superuser.apk /data/local
5) type - adb shell
6) type - mount -o remount,rw -t rfs /dev/block/stl19 /system
7) type - cat /data/local/su > /system/xbin/su
8) type - chmod 6755 /system/xbin/su
9) type - cat /data/local/Superuser.apk > /system/app/Superuser.apk
10) type chmod 755 /system/app/Superuser.apk
11) rebootעם ישראל חי

adb push c:\wherever\gingerbreak.apk /sdcard/gingerbreak.apk
Then go to the phone, enable "unknown apps", open up the file browser and click on gingerbreak to install it. Once that's done, run gingerbreak, and it will give you a button to "root". THEN it's a one-click kind of operation. Good luck ;-)
Oh, almost forgot. Note to all: be super careful when using ADB and mounted SDcard partitions. I did a simple write to the (pc-unmounted) sd card using an adb command, followed shortly by going to the phone and telling it to pc-mount the sdcard (so i could pull the file i just created) and it nuked my sdcard. Good thing I made a backup!

Ok two things... First, what the heck does "Tetris force closes" imply? The game? idk. And Next, when I use CWM to do a backup of my rom that im running now (KB), could i use the the advanced restore to just restore the data as a way to easy get all my apps back? Or would that totally cause my phone to melt and go into force close hell? Thanks everyone

The best CWM to use with this ROM is the CWM 3-30 all. It's version 2.5.x. That was the last one that worked with the stock scripting language, which EC09 uses. And to root with the superuser package, all you have to do is after getting EC09 up and running, put the su+busybox zip on the SD card, power down, pull the battery, get to download mode and ODIN the CWM file. Reboot into recovery, *not a full reboot, or you'll have to redo CWM*, and install the zip. Reboot, and so long as superuser shows installed, you are rooted.Android: If it ain't broke, you haven't flashed nearly enough stuff yet...

anyone who has the Leak GB notice any diffrences from stock 2.2.
so far i noticed that they removed the option to free up memory from "Level 2" using the built in task manager.
the toggles in the status bar are the same and to me it seems like when the status bar is pulled down it flows like butter. after comparing it to my girlfriends Fascinate (COMmROM 2.0) it feels smother, this can also be due to the face that i have a nice cookie in my hands after holding that Froyo so long it just feels different in my head... Any thoughts?
