I had a warp but wanted the same power and ICS ina smaller package. Gotta say this phone delivers. I'm not overly concerned about roms for this device as I'm enjoying ICS. I would however like a rooting method to get rid of some junk on the phone.

I bought this phone because my HTC EVO Design 4G on Boost stopped working. Therefore, I needed a phone to use while my EVO Design is being fixed.

The features I like about this phone is that it is water resistant and runs Android 4.0. I want to know how to root this phone.

You and me both lol

I like the fact that it actually does what it's suppose to do out of the box, unlike my ZTE warp, which was heavily modded, lol.

Since it is ICS 4.0, it will take some time to get root on this phone. I am working on the root issue but it will take some time. One little slip up and i have a factory brick.

Kyocera really has this thing on lock.. This could take some time.

Who else almost wet themselves upon hearing root has finally been achieved? Lol big thanks to the devs for that cookie. On another note, who can I hire to build an app for something?
