Default (solved) how to remove the root account (gmail) on my Galaxy S2

Hi,

I am trying to remove the (root) account on my Galaxy S2 (build Gingerbread.buke5), but I am unable to remove it.
I looked at several posts
https://www.galaxys2forums.com/samsun...n-samsung-im/)
https://www.galaxys2forums.com/samsun...gmail-account/
both topics seems to make sence but after I acknowlegded that all data will be removed and I agreed to continue, nothing happens.

So I tried resetting it to factory defaults.
> settings => restore factory defaults.


or by pressing the holding the volume up + home button... ect (see link below)
or by dailing *2767*3855#
http://www.hard-reset.com/samsung-i9...ard-reset.html
all kind of installation screens are shown during the first initial start.
But after the factory reset, the account still exsist.

I have read somewhere that this is the 'root' account which is used for appmarket. But can someone help me get rid off this account?
My goal is to link my GS2 to my google account that I use on my desktop too.

LOL

Maybe it seemed to work afterall.
the Gmail account that I tried to delete is connected to my google account that I use right after the initial startup after the factory reset.

case closed.
