Anyone ever Root their cell phone??

Recommended Posts

Ive rooted both my OG droids and my Bionic. Its worth it if you intend on using the features you will able to unlock with it. I've run plenty of roms and themes, OC'd kernels etc. There's a lot of customization to be had and the sense of freedom that comes with it. If I may ask... what phone?

 

Most one click root methods make it really easy nowadays instead of doing it the old fashion way. Either way, the best advice is to read the instructions AHEAD of time and go step by step whilst rooting. Phones dont magically brick while properly following an established root method. 99.9% of the time it is user error that destroys a phone.

I jailbreak iPhones/iPads. I like it for a few things jail breaking allowes. Like theams, tethering and a few others. Like app killers and modding colors. Here som pic' of my iPhone

There are so many tweaks I can't name them all. I would start off reading online, sing up in a forum that has a lot of info on rooting and tweaks.

 

What kind of phone you have and what operating system you are running? I could find a few places that might help you out.

I rooted an old GPS unit that was running a windows mobile o/s. Learned a lot doing it but I tend to get more entertainment/satisfaction from rooting and hacking then from the actual use of the modified piece of electronics.

I rooted my Android Motorola Razr Maxx a few weeks ago. I rooted it because I wanted to use Titanium Backup to freeze the OTA updates from occurring for ICS. I prefer Gingerbread and didn't want ICS to be applied. It worked perfectly, although I was nervous doing it. Let me know if you need more info.

Yep, definitely worthwhile. I root all of my Android devices. Gives you complete control over what to do with the platform (as it should since it's YOUR hardware!). In addition to all of the cool apps you can then install and use, i.e. tethering, backup, and endless other "tweaks", you are also get a choice of your favorite ROMs to run. Maybe nice open source ones out there that get rid of the bloat that usually comes preloaded on phones from your service provider.

 

Like someone else mentioned, xda-developers forum is the place to get the latest and greatest bits and info.

    • Sig P229 Platinum Elite from their Custom Shop. This one breaks my heart to sell. Never fired with the white grips on it. I bought it for a security detail in India and figured the white grips would hide well under light colored garments. The gig fell thru and it has remained a nightstand gun. I took one GFH training class with it. I used the 9mm conversion barrel most often. 2 mags come with it. The factory 12rd mags are in NC. If the ban gets overturned, I will reach out about selling them to you at a reduced price.  ALL NJ requirements must be met and permits at the ready. Willing to meet at your FFL if they are in the Totowa / Bloomingdale area. Or near 287/23/208 vicinity. Will ship to another FFL at your expense.  $1000.00 First I'll take it, gets it. Please understand the terms above before making the commitment.  https://photos.app.goo.gl/GtNps395krKYUiJ2A https://photos.app.goo.gl/zCS39Mhdi9ohCdxW8 https://photos.app.goo.gl/1FTyeyfjMyRFRHEAA   I also have a Sig P229 22lr upper for it that will be posted in the other section. If you are interested in the holsters for it, please IM me.               
    • For sale is a hard to find Glock G26 Gen 4 is FULL FDE. Maybe 2 boxes of ammo thru it. Like the P365, I got if for my girls and they couldn't safely rack the slide.  ALL NJ requirements must be met and permits at the ready. Willing to meet at your FFL if they are in the Totowa / Bloomingdale area. Or near 287/23/208 vicinity. Will ship to another FFL at your expense.  $500 First I'll take it, gets it.

    • For sale is a gently used G19C. I used it for a beginners handgun because of the extremely light recoil the compensator ports create. $450.00. 2  ten round mags are included. I had 15 rounders, but they were sold to a buddy in NC.  ALL NJ requirements must be met and permits at the ready. Willing to meet at your FFL if they are in the Totowa / Bloomingdale area. Or near 287/23/208 vicinity.  $400 First I'll take it, gets it. Please understand the terms above before making the commitment.  https://photos.app.goo.gl/5CoETh3tPXVpujcr7 https://photos.app.goo.gl/XdDXmkpXyeYkbFEy7  
    • For Sale - Sig P365 9mm with three 10 round mags. Very low round count. Got this and a G26 for my college aged girls and they lack the hand strength to safety operate them. $450.00. Must follow all NJ Laws and have permits ready to go. Located in Bloomingdale or Totowa area. Willing to travel locally to your FFL, or will ship to another FFL at your expense. I will post a couple of photos and can email more if interested.  First I'll take it, gets it. Please make sure you understand the terms beforehand.  https://photos.app.goo.gl/yRpkQYp5FrGDNYLE7 https://photos.app.goo.gl/497zuRqYFYkeoez88
    • I'll join the crowd welcoming and second the idea of getting your license issues resolved as soon as you can. You will need matching IDs to buy a gun and any time that you buy ammo.  I know that going to the DMV is a pain in the rear end but it might be easier than explaining why they don't match each time you purchase and carrying a third piece of documentation (the address update from DMV.)
