    Ok, my purposes for rooting were rather simple. Firstly, bloatware. There are even pre loaded games that I couldn't take off just by tapping settings. Also, speed. I want the cpu to be set a bit higher. How do I go about solving these things, now that I have superuser access? Thanks in advance.

    Well this is posted in the Unlocking section which has more to deal with SIM unlocking.

    Deleting bloat ware is VERY easy.

    1) install the ADB drivers on your Window's machine or set up the entire SDK on your Linux/Mac machine.

    2) use this like to identify your apps
    Code:
    #ls /system/app
    That one will identify all of the apps in the /system folders. Those are typically the ones that are considered bloat ware.

    3) then you'll want to set the system to R/W. This is a generic code and should work on most Androids.
    Code:
    mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblk3 /system
    4) then remove the apps you want with this code
    Code:
    rm /system/app/[app-name]
    5) repeat as required

    6) set the system to -ro
    Code:
    ount -o remount,ro /dev/mtdblock3 /system

    To over clock your phone you'll need a new kernel that allows of overclocking. You'll have to look over @ XDA in your phone's development section.

    How do I make the system file writeable? When I try to remove apps, it says system file is read only.
