Slovenian language is not supported in froyo but it is available in gingerbread. Do you think it is possible to port it?

This will not work with the U8800H, which uses a different radio, since the modules will not be enabled in the kernel.

You should see an App Called SuperUser installed :D

This App allows you to control which apps can have root privileges.
