What will rooting get me?
I'm trying to decide whether to root my Blaze or not. What exactly will rooting the phone get me? I am currently running Android 4.0.4 ICS. What I would really like out of this would be the ability to remove all of the bloatware on the phone. Gamebase and Tele Nav, really? I can do without.
I'm not looking to do any development or in depth hacking, just clean up my phone, preferably with a plain vanilla version of Android, the latest version possible. Is this what I'll be getting if I do root? Are there any disadvantages to rooting? Will my phone actually lose any functionality? Will it gain any?
This is my fourth Android phone (G1, LG Optimus, Samsung S 3G, and now the Blaze) and it is by far my favorite. I have never done any rooting on any of the previous phones so I really have no idea what to expect. Thanks for any advice.
I would rather be sailing...
