I have got this android device, and I am really enjoying it. I’ve configured most of the social networking apps and setup mail accounts. WiFi is the must thing for any phone now I should say. I have never used a smart phone before so this was my first and so far best experience. The best thing about android phones are the tweaking, they are easy to tweak and hell lot of information is available over internet.
My next task was to configure the VPN so that I can access the internet through wifi in my office. But, the default android vpn client (in Froyo – which the code name of Android release 2.2) does not allow to connect me. I found this vpn client which is supposedly working on most of the phone. Now, to use this client the android devices must be rooted. When I say rooted, it means the phone (running android, hence Linux) should have the super user access. I am really novice in rooting phones or tweaking the phones so I was little hesitating doing all these, but it turns out to be safe. My first experience was with z4root app, but it could not root the phone. (Interestingly, I did not know how to make sure that the phone is rooted or not. To make sure that one can download "Terminal Emulator" android app – which is a kind of terminal of Linux – and type "su" command. If command succeeds that the phone is said to be rooted). So now I am going to try out the SuperOneClick. And It is said to be working for most of the phones. This is a GUI app which works on Windows, Linux both, so let’s see if it works. Fingers crossed!!
