    A lil help plz

    Well I have been trying to root my ascend 2. I tried z4 and it didn't work so I deleted it then I tried ginger bread which also didn't work so I tried to delete it and my phone started to freak out. I turned it off to give it a rest. When I turned it on it seemed ok but everything loaded slower(web pages,games,videos, downloading, etc..). I download an antivirus app to help get rid of the gingerbread app which it did but my phone is still slow :-(
    plz help ty

    I am rooted on 2.3.6 and I had issues with other methods but this way worked for me and you dont end with any extra stuff on your phone but you do need to downgrade. I flashed back to 2.3.3 by hard resetting with the dload/updata.zip in the root dir. Then rooted with the unlock root software on my pc. Then applied the OTA upgrade to 2.3.6 and its still rooted after the upgrade. Then delete your bloatware and whatever else..after that.. and it runs great.

    i struggled for two months using very option on the site, gave up for a while, but kept the update.zip on the root of the card( downloaded by computer, transferred to memory card ). i just kept trying to update from sdCard and finally yesterday it worked, so now im rooted with superuser, i guess just keep trying the steps from all of the above.. by the way i upgraded from 2.3.3 to 2.3.5 to 2.3.6 and did it on 2.3.6

    Hey, don't apologize. Everyone was new once. Last year I didn't know anything. Now, I'm always trying to find a new way to tweak my phone. The only thing I haven't tried, yet, is writing code and such. I learned there are lots of nice people who put out some great tutorials and help guides.
