    This guy ain't joking. This thing popped up on my task killer too, just noticed it yesterday. HTC Desire. It only says "420", nothing else. The only thing I've recently downloaded is the update to the preloaded Facebook application.

    Root is terminology that's the same as jailbreak for an iPhone. Obtaining superuser rights. As far as the 420 showing up issue it depends on numerous variables. Was a custom rom flashed. What were you doing at the time? What did you download? Where did you download from? Can you send a screenshot of this on your phone? Can you take a picture with a different device and post picture here so we can see it?

    I can work on getting a screenshot, but I don't think that's going to help anyone, judging by how little information I am able to gather from looking at the process when it *does* appear.

    As I said, I've only downloaded the update for the Facebook application that came preloaded, from the Android Market. I've done some quick Google searches here and there, but I really only read/send texts or listen to SD card music with my phone most of the time.

    This 420 process does not appear in any other area of my phone other than the task killer.

    Advanced Task Killer. I don't know who makes it, though. Downloaded from Android Market.

    My device is on 2.1, by the way.

    Get rid of Advanced Task Killer. There is no need for it and it's a cancer on your phone's battery.

    Check the app manager and see if you can see a 420 process running or 420 app listed. We'll get to the bottom of this.
