    I've had my Continuum for 18 months now and am getting really frustrated with the lack of OS upgrades. I'm still running the Froyo update that Verizon pushed out almost a year ago. Its making me seriously consider rooting it to get a more recent (and more stable) OS. Some colleagues with S3's have told me that after upgrading to Jelly Bean all of the problems they'd been having went away.

    I've got a few questions about rooting and trying to get a recent version of Android running.

    What is the latest version that you can run on the Continuum?

    Is there somewhere I can go to find out step by step how to root the phone and get there? IOW tools needed, ROM version needed, steps needed to restore should I brick the phone, how to prevent bricking it in the first place, etc.

    Also, if I do successfully root it, and go to the latest version possible of the OS, will I lose anything? For example use of the ticker (not that I really use it for much anyway as I'm not a fan of social networks).

    What about apps that I've installed? Will I lose them? Especially paid apps that I purchased, some from the Amazon store and not from Play.

    Will the Play store still think my phone is a stock SCH-I400 and tell me apps aren't compatible with it when now they are?

    Dig through the all things root sub-forum for your answers. As for the ticker, I thought it was unsupported by everything now? I hated it anyway. I bought it when it was first released because I didn't know any better, now I use it for media streaming.
