try putting the phone in usb debugging mode. settings->application->development and tick usb debugging. then at the su request hit always allow.
let me know how you get on with barnacle as i have having issues with it on my pulse mini (see thread barnacle wifi problems). if you manage to get it working fine, please report back and let me know on which network (i'm on tmobile).
You lovely man! It seems USB debugging mode allowed the superuser app to do its thing.
Here's what happened with Barnacle. (I'm on O2).
Tried to open www.google.co.uk on my daughter's Win 7 netbook (with firefox). Barnacle said "Unexpected error occurred! Inspect the log and try the troubleshooting guide".
Couldn't see anything useful in the log.
Started Barnacle again, tried to open google.co.uk again, same error.
Started Barnacle again, pinged google.co.uk successfully
Opened www.google.co.uk with firefox successfully
Searched for "test" and opened a couple of results successfully
Opened youtube.com successfully and managed to watch a video (at least a couple of seconds, connection was very slow).
No sign of the connection breaking. Strange!
