If you just want root access, then you don't have to downgrade, but it is well worth the extra effort to downgrade and get s-off.
So I can't edit build.prop without downgrading?
That's the whole reason why I'm rooting. So if you just root without s off, what can you do with that? All I'm rooting for is to play gameloft games.
Hey also, I went on File Droid lite app and it let me explore through everything in my phone. Then it let me into the System folder and I found my build.prop file! How come I can access my system folder? I'm not even rooted.
