Hi. I tried to root after the recent update and was unable to. Before the fix arrives and I root my phone... I need clarification or assistance. Make sure rooting is for me... Reason for rooting: I want to get rid of the crap I don't use on the phone, but I still need it to make calls, download pdf and doc files, and some of the other basic stuff. Mostly my phone is used for phone purposes and as a spare drive for files. I just want more room, a cleaner app list of MY apps, etc. So, I guess I can root to take off the 'bloatware'? Do I need a custom ROM for this after I root? Can I turn s-on after (not exactly sure what it does)? Does the phone do all the same things after rooting? I've searched but my questions haven't been answered or if they have been, I'm not up with electronics and terminology... I'm a chemist.
