    Anyone get a stable root with this Boost S2? I have been trying with a new s2 for about a week, but never could get the phone to stop eventually getting into a reboot loop. Just curious if others have had success. Thanks.

    I have been rooted for quite a long time and never have any issues with that.

    One thing on mine was when I first flashed GC01 it did the same thing, did the boot loop stuff, but what I did was, after I did the no data GC01 and it starts the boot loop and this is something that happens every once and awhile on other roms, is I just did a data wipe/factory reset and then reboot and it fixed that problem, give it a try, it should work for ya....:)

    Wouldn't that be the same thing as just flashing the full restore GC01, or no?

    When you got your phone originally did it come with GC01 or did you or the store upgrade to it? I know that if you were on ICS I would have recommended a full restore when going to JB.

    Yes, it was ICS when purchased. I upgraded via the links on the Boost site and then several days later performed the no data root via Odin3 which gave the yellow triangle. I then flashed again later with no data root Odin one click.

    I know it sounds like a pain, but it really isn't all that, esp if you have your contacts synced with a Google account. A true clean One click restore install or wipe (factory reset) would be a good thing. Google-Play remembers any apps you have already purchased so you can just download them again once you put your account info back in. and copy pics/mp3's to an external SD or PC before you do.

    Yeah, I know. It just takes time. And some things like SMS, and sometimes pictures if not set correctly, voice recordings, etc., sometimes get stored in phone. It just takes time to verify and save.

    I know this is off topic, but is there a way to tell phone to save SMS on card not internally?

    i think it was GO SMS that did that. might have been pro

    I use SMS backup & restore. Gives the option to save to external SD
    I usually recommend backing things from internal memory to dropbox or Mega :]

    Went ahead and flashed full restore root. Everything seems stable. Thanks for all the help. Can you recommend the best root hotspot app? Thanks again.
