    Used Superone Click for the root and I put Titanium on too. I backed up the crapware and then uninstalled it so I can re-install for future updates.

    Downloaded Superone Click Root. Turn on debug, unseat your SD card and run the Oneclick. That easy. Download Titanium Backup, back the crapware up and then uninstall it.

    I tried to install the super one click and it had a virus in it...

    I'm pretty sure that the super one click for XDA developers is not a virus. keep in mind that it is a program to hack your phone so it probably sets off red flags for security software........Im not super tech savvy or anything like that but I had the same thing happen and my computer is virus free.

    If you read some of the stuff on XDA they actualy say this might flag ur anti virus but no need to be alarmed. Iv used it its 100% ligit but if you are woried rooting your phone isint for every one. so becarful

    simple but it doesn't seem to be so...
    all I get is "waiting for device"
    do I need to download drivers for this device?
    if so where?-->cant seem to find them anywhere.

    So, those of you that have rooted and removed the "bloatware" what has been the benefit - increase in free memory, lag improvement, etc. Without a custom ROM, I'm not sure I see the point. I rooted my Eris because I could get significant performance improvement.

    After rooting, are you able to "pinch to zoom"? I have read that this phone will not "pinch to zoom".

    Hello, all

    Rooted my phone like a week ago and everything is working fine. Unfortunately I think I accedentally deleted a system app with out backing it up because I am no longer able to select system update option from the about phone menu. Can anyone help me with this? Is there anyway someone could send me a folder with all of the apps that originally came with the phone?

    Sorry for being so nooby first android phone not really sure what I'm doing

    Awesome! Thank you. Any idea which app would cause the system update option to not work? Or do I just need to have all of the stock apps installed to make it work...?

    I think it is because there are no system updates, hence when you click it nothing happens. That is the way my phone performs.

    I figured it out. It was InnoPath Active Care, I must have accedentally deleted it without backing it up when I first used Titanium. thanks for the help

    Anyone who's having problems rooting or getting drivers needs to download verizon's stupid music sync app. You can find it here.

    Hi everyone. Just got first Android (Commando) about a month ago. Been reading pretty heavily on pro's/con's of root. Any comments would be appreciated. Also, everyone's talking about super one-click... What about Z4 or the other simple one-click roots? Are there advantages/disadvantages one way or the other? I know... I'm being really nooby, but I want to do my homework before I do this.

    What rooting will allow you to do is remove any carrier apps that are on the phone that you will never use. For example, I removed all the vcast stuff and vzw navigation. I'll never use any of this stuff and there is no reason to take up memory on the phone with them. Another thing rooting will allow you to do is download an app from the market called adfree. This app is very effective in blocking those annoying pop-up ads that free ad supported apps have. The third thing rooting will allow you to do is install an app that enables wi-fi tethering. This will violate vzw's terms of service if they figure out you are doing it. There is a great deal of discussion about this all over the internet and it is not the topic of this thread. If at some point a developer develops a custom ROM for the commando you will have to be rooted to apply a ROM.

    Rooting will void the warrenty of your phone but it is reversable in some cases.

    Ultimately its your decision...

    I would like to root my commando, but I'd also like to reverse that in case I need something from verizon. Anybody reversed their root of their commando???

    I also hear that freezing your bloatware is better than uninstalling it, in case you need to reverse your root.

    There is also an unroot option in Super One Click. I usually just rename the bloat all the file extensions are .apk just change the ones you don't want to .bak then change them back if you ever need to send it in.

    Can u expand on that a bit? How do u rename them? Does that have advantages over freezing?

    You'll need a file manager like ES File Manager, Super Manager or Astro. Navigate to the system/apps folder and find the apps you'd like to remove and either delete or rename them.

    From what I understand freezing doesn't remove the app from memory and renaming or deleting does.
