Tickerguy, thanks for this information.
- What, if any, are the drawbacks of the Gingerbreak method?
- What features will I not be getting with this method?
- Is it reversible?
One more important question: should I be resetting the phone entirely before I root it? (I only got it this week, I don't mind.) Does it need to be in a fresh, out-of-the-box state before starting? Should I disable sync? Is there anything else I should do to it before I start?
