Rooting? OK, I'm trying to cut through the technogarb; In Linux to perform certain tasks you need root authorisation, same in Android? Android dont want you to do this so the normal Linux command prompt method won't work hence you need to replace stock Android with a modified one which will allow it? Enter Pauls (Modaco) method on the wiki, which just mods the recovery image on the partition that is used to factory restore the Galaxy on hard reset, to allow it to access root. Can the Galaxy be returned to totally standard form for warranty claims? When (I'm an optimist) NPS supports the UK Galaxy will it recognise nonstandard rooted phones and not allow upgrades? I'm sure I nearly understand, I've been flashing WM phones for years but this is all a bit different. Thanks for any pointers.
