    mysterious app appearing in my task manager. it's name is 420. I did not start it

    So, this app has appeared a few times now in my task manager. it's name is 420. I don't have an icon for this app in my apps list and didn't' knowingly download anything by this name. The icon next to it looks like a little inbox with papers in it. I have a brand new Samsung Mesmerize.

    this little dancing guy reminds me of the Peanut butter jelly time bannana. I love it!

    Thanks in advance,
    Bekt

    Does it appear every time you've rebooted? What happens when you kill the task?

    It appeared twice in two days. I killed it both times. It has not returned today...

    Is it appearing randomly or only after a reboot? If it appears again can you get a screenshot?

    If you're rooted you can install drocap2. Heck, I've heard quite a few things about it working on Sammy phones even without root, so give it a try.

    ShootMe will also work on Samsung phones without root. Here's a Market link.

    I keep forgetting about that app. I think it's because I'm the only rooted user in the world who never had any interest in taking screen captures on my phone. :D

    Is that because we really don't wanna see what's on your screen?

    On the screen or on my desktop? The screen itself I won't comment on, based on what I may or may not have been doing. :D
