General Rooting Thread

First off, I noticed that there weren't many universal rooting threads so i figured I would create one.

Second, I am a noobie. How exactly does it all work?

My HTC MyTouch 3G is missing wi-fi as a feature!

I just bought a new unlocked HTC MyTouch 3G from Newegg this past President's Day weekend,

"contract free".

I intended to just use my existing T-Mobile prepaid account and just enjoy the phone using

wi-fi. The problem is, I cannot log into Google using the phone b/c I don't even see wi-fi as

an option. One of the big reasons I bought this phone was to use wi-fi to get my apps. I

don't need 3G service.

Here's some screenshots: ... » ... » ... »

So what can I do?

Hancent Question (Hope this is the correct forum)

Alright, so I appologize first off if this is being posted in the wrong forum...I have Handcent SMS installed on my Vibrant. Approximately a month ago, whenever I get a message, I get whichever message notification I have set up (either default or personalized for the contact) and then I also get some white envelope icon. Now, I'm pretty Android savvy so I know it's not the default system messaging notification; that one not only looks different but has been turned off since I installed alternate SMS apps. It has be seriously perplexed, the worst part is, it's also happening on my wife's Cliq and our notification settings are completely different! I have friends that use Handcent and we seem to be the only ones I know with that issue. Any in...

Samsung Transform Hard Reset

For anyone needing help resetting their Samsung Transform. I googled it and all the sites kept giving me the generic android reset which is Vol Down + Power but that didnt work on the Transform.
I went through about 20 different sites with the same cookie cutter info.

Here is what worked:
1. Turn the power off. If your Samsung Transform is frozen, pull the battery out and reinsert it
2. Hold the Volume Down button + Voice Action Button + Power Button
3. Hold all three buttons until the device turns on
4. You are now presented with a menu that allows for Fastbook, Recovery, Clear Storage, and Simlock
5. Select Clear Storage by pressing the Volume Down button
6. Press and release the Voice Action Button button
7. No...

2.2 for the Aria? When?

I and others have been going to HTC and ATT to try and get some answer to when the HTC Aria will be getting 2.2.

We have been getting all kinds of stories, none of which appear true and then it appears each is blaming it on the other...

Does anyone have a clue, or access to someone who can get an answer?

Whst Is this symbol?

I Did the update from samsung on my fascinate. Now I've got a new symbol on my phone. It looks like two triangles with lines in the center. I've seen it before, on the older smart phones. But can't remember what it's for. It's not blue tooth. It's verizon service. It's just driving me nuts trying to remember.

Thanks, jo

Question about the Huawei Ascend

I have never owned an android, but I would really like to get this phone. I use to make ringtones. Can you use these ringtones on this phone? Also what is the best twitter app to use on this phone? Any help would be really really appreciated. Thanks so much. Cool Very Happy Cool Very Happy

P.S. I did put this question in the phones forum but it's the only question there so I was afraid it would be overlooked.
