what I'm looking to do
I want to be able to dump the slide to unlock and use a pin only as a screen unlock, use ringdroid for not just ringtones, but notifications, and have total control over what sound is used for what. I want to separate text, email, notifications by tones, be able to use any sound for any and all purposes. I want my browser to automatically go to my homepage after I open it after using ATK, like 2.1 did. I also want more contact sorting options (work, personal, etc) with several alphabetical lists.
Will rooting accomplish this?
