thank you very much. I truly appreciate this bit of information that will help me to get on JB. I've never rooted and I'd be willing to try. And neither I'm I put off, although it seem a bit mind boggling to do the process.
My machine is a WPC, and I'm familiar with the Java packages and development SDK's; I did Java programming and a bit of Android development (this was just for fun). On my machine I got the Eclipse and NetBeans IDEs just the same.
Much thanks and appreciation for the support. I love this forum.
