Ok kiddies...I finally succeeded! After much heartache and sorrow, flip flopping around as to whether or not root, and general discontent with a stock ICS update(that Woodsy and Rico have heard about to no end....)...I finally decided to root. After lots of trial and error, and lots of help from everyone at www.wcxxperia-nce.com for walking me through the process. The process is mildly complicated, and not exactly beginner level...but having lots of experience flashing rom's on my Inspire I was somewhere in the middle. So far, this ROM is super smooth...it is much faster, and very stable. He is working on a generic ROM that is competely ATT free, and has Wifi Hotspot Tethering unlocked. Can't wait! All in all I am super happy with the rom, and now am super comfortable with the process required to set up the phone to flash. I'm getting ready to start compiling comprehensive "Work Instructions" on how to flash it. Anybody interested??
