    Hi all .....this rooting thing all started innocently enough..was just going to get the hotspot fix and that was it....now I'm an addict....even when everything is going good in my relationship with my evo I'm always looking around for something better looking, faster, more attrabutes...I feel cheap and unfaithful....my god what am I to do...are there meetings, are there pills that will help....maybe I should start R.A. ( rooters anonymous ) at least then there would be others like me to talk to....:D...who will join

    it is strange, I wanted occasional wifi for the laptop and didn't wanna spend the $$ then I found out I can play angry birds without ads... that was it...

    I'm in pseudo recovery. I was a flashaholic with my Hero. Just got the EVO, so I'm being a good boy so far.

    yeah i thought that i had an evo addiction til i rooted. now i really have it bad now. i literally cannot put the phone down. i use my phone so much now that i'm constantly charging my phone. it is not that i do not have a bad battery life. its just that i'm using it too much. i may get a bigger battery but that will make my beautiful evo ugly. i hate my addiction (not really). help!!!!!!!

    I'm in. Can't put it down, always reading the forums. Having to mod, theme, try new things. Just can't seem to get enough.

    No.


    You know, the first step to recovery is admitting you have an addiction. So congrats to my many fellow addicts. . .
    I'm not sure about turning my addiction over to the "EVO GODS" . . . I'm not sure that step will work as intended!

    Same here. Always told to "Put the phone down!"......tried for a month to get her to upgrade to an Evo but she decided on the Epic.....guess in a couple weeks when she wants hers rooted I will have to learn on that one. :D

    Mine had an EVO before me. I rooted hers so she could have the sprint hotspot and she never plays with hers...I'm constantly playing with mine...maybe it just a guy thing that we learned at a very young age...teeheee;)

    I worked for the first time in a week today. First day back with the evo. Got yelled at by the boss. Then I had to spend about 20 minutes showing him features and such. Poor guy has a BB......I think the addiction may have spread to a potential convert....

    I must introduce the term ENABLING . We have several typical examples of the power of addiction. Enabling your wives to become an addict... just not right. Even worse is enabling your boss to engage in the addiction. You sir have gone too far. Please save yourselves and get to a meeting tonight. You've all heard the saying "I was hooked after the first Rom". Don't let yourselves have that same fate. There is hope if you act quickly.

    When you guys saying "rooting" addiction do you really mean 'flashing'?
    If yes, then count me in I'm definitely a flashoholic!

    However, this latest version of MIUI has made me it's bitch and have since seized the numerous daily flashes. It still has its quirks but man overall it kicks some ass!
