I've been using a Motorola Droid 3 since it came out in June 2011. About 6 months ago, I finally rooted my phone and have been enjoying it like that. The hardware itself was getting really old and my contract was up last month. After waiting and giving up for a modern keyboard-enabled Android phone, I pulled the trigger on a SGS4.
I planned on rooting my S4 once I got my hands on it. But I came across this
, which obviously concerns me. What do you suggest I should do? I bought my S4 (still staying with Verizon Wireless service) from Amazon and have no idea what version it'll have.
I'm not looking to do any hardcore modding on the S4; stock'ish ROM would be OK. But I want/need root on it if I want to transfer my apps and data via Titanium Backup, use Ad-Free to block apps' ads, and use a couple other root-required apps I have to overclock (or underclock) the phone. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. TIA.
