I think you can fastboot boot recovery and nandroid her setup, then save all photos and nandroid to the computer, unlock, flash recovery, root, transfer files back to phone, nandroid back, then reroot if need be. She'd never know!

BTW, please ask Scary Alien if this is possible. I am freestyling but I think it is possible.

Yeah, unfortunately, you gotta be unlocked for the really useful fastboot commands to work (like flash or boot).

I know your'e speaking of an N4, but with the GNex, it's actually possible to unlock the bootloader in a couple of ways without losing your data (there's a newer method than the old mempodroid method whose exploit was patched in recent kernel version updates).

Still really wish VZW had the N4 so I could mess with it--I'm a Nexus device guy now--not sure if I'll get another non-Nexus phone .

That's my exact opinion. Non-Nexus devices are difficult to deal with in comparison, and are much more brick proof than other devices. Other devices might be relativly easy, but still more difficult if only by a little. Verizon's inablity to get another nexus will probably result in me dumping them when my contract is up.

+1 .

After this December, I should be down to only two lines on VZW (both my son and wife are with other carriers now).

I don't really fault VZW for not keeping their doors (devices) as open as other's do since they feel that business model seems to work, but my wallet will do my voting .

What's really funny is that I don't do any wi-fi tethering (only ever briefly ever tested this a few times) and most of the time I have and use a wi-fi connection vs. taxing their 3G network (I also keep my 4G Nexus on 3G most of the time since that seems to help with my battery life). So, my rooting behavior has no real impact on them whatsoever .

Yeah, I won't ever get another non Nexus phone either. Didn't take me long to miss my Nexus S after getting a GS2.

I almost bricked my wifes phone rooting it I thought I had completely screwed up but it is sorta well now. She has an Optimus S I think her next phone will be either my EVO LTE or (shudder to think it) an Iphone. My next phone will be a nexus

Welcome to the side of truth, justice and freedom - welcome to the root side!

Which recovery are you using?

You got me. As I said, I just did it yesterday, and I'm really just catching in to all the lingo.
But I followed the directions in the thread on rooting in the sticky section. So, whatever recovery is there, that's the one I have.

So far have rooted my mate's Desire Z... it was pretty easy, once we realized that we had to downgrade to an earlier version... should have seen it, as it was in the instructions!

Think the wife's phone will have to wait until tomorrow!!

Default rooted by a psycho

So apparently I am a rooted user... My recently new ex boyfriend stole my phone for almost a day. When it was returned I assumed he had put spyware or something on it. I was researching root for my HTC wildfire and had discovered one of the benefits is having hotspot access, which was one of the first things I noticed that was obviously different and unexplained. Can someone please give me some advice on how to end his access to my phone please?

Do a factory data reset, and make sure that you install only apps that you want and need. Change your passwords if you think they've been compromised.

If you want to change your gmail password, do that first, before clearing out your phone with a factory data reset.

I would IMMEDIATELY do a factory reset. That will eliminate any apps that he could have installed that needed root access that can spy on you. While having root access can be incredibly useful, it can also be really bad if someone has installed things on your phone without your knowledge.

Captivate has been rooted since Christmas Day two years ago. Rooted my Galaxy S 3 the day I got it and just now rooted my Nexus 10 and sister's LG Thrive.

Word on the wire today (twitter) one of the devs, @liquid0624 has had his motherboard fry, so he is not going to be developing for a while.

Bummer!

You betcha! I read until my eyes bled, and rooted it!
No issues so far! Wanna buy my Evo? Fully rooted s-off. Perhaps I will post it in the Classifieds!

The Note 2 seemed to me a little big to operate with one hand imo. But it did look sweet

I am running liquid smooth RC7 on my AT&T SIII, I think it is up to RC9 (RC = release candidate). I am not sure what other phones he has. I think the Nexus 4 and perhaps Galaxy Nexus.

I cannot have an Android device without root therefore I wont buy 'unrootable' devices since I need overclocking just to hide the lag or change certain UI elements (I'm looking at YOU App not responding dialog!)

Currently on my HTC EVO LTE I'm running PAC Man which is Paranoid Android, AOKP, and CM10 all combined into one. I'm loving this ROM especially with a few graphic mod's I added to it.

Sucks even with the huge update ROM manager still doesn't support cwm recovery natively for the droid razr.

Guess i'll have to do a manual install.

Can you use TWRP for the Razr?

Well, all...

I think I am going to retire SU and super SU. Whether or not this is permanent, I am not sure. I think I am going to just leave my devices where they are, if an update breaks root, I think I will just keep it broken.

Enjoy, your rooting adventures, I think it may be time for me to settle down for a while

I got one more rom that I am going to try... CSROM v 1.0

While I am giving things one more attempt, I am trying to put a fresh rom black star XI on my parents note 1. First attempt failed good thing I accidentally downloaded a second copy. It looks like it flashed fine and I am at the first boot.

Flashing CSROM to the S3 now

So far I really like it. It feels clean and smooth. It don't have a ton of features as I believe it is based on touchwiz and that is good. I don't do much tweaking.

Running Bad Seeds Tranquility at the moment its pretty good with battery life and all. Aesthetically pleasing. Nice ROM for the EVO LTE. It has a program that will allow you to add mods to it from Windows but I don't have windows so cant use that feature. Still can mod it the old fashioned way which is good by me.

Just updated to CM10.1 on my DHD... seems quite stable - quite impressed... brought a few tweaks on CM10 that I had on it before!

Always had terrible battery problems on CM with my Droid. But my battery on Sourcery is the pits right now.
Maybe I'll give 10.1 a shot.

On occasion, battery life hasn't been the best but, for the most part, I've had really good experiences.

With CM7, I got in to undervolting, etc. Battery life was AWESOME!

Have been impressed so far with CM10.1 though!!

IIRC, EP was saying that he's just put it on his N7... bet that looks good!

Well my s3 battery life has improved after I flashed cm10. But maybe that's because it was so bad after the normal JB update.
I love how easy it is to root Samsung devices.
