    Without a doubt, it's the easiest way to root.

    The most complicated part of the process is the driver install, but even then you'r walked through it and it does most of the work for you.

    I always used TWRP, no real reason (although it does look slightly better than CWM).

    Well, I THINK I'm ready to go. I'm on Win 7 and on the final driver check I got a Fastboot not found error code and I think an ADB error also. I tried the check two more times and the phone finally cycled through the bootloader(?) and I did get the Wugs Success! message.

    I guess I'm ready to give it a try? :thinking:

    If you got the success message, you should be good to go.

    Bear in mind the bootloader unlock wipes the data partition, so you might want to backup your stuff before hand. There's an option in the toolkit or alternatively you can use Helium on the play store.

    Just a note, For those that may not know.

    I use CWM because it takes up much less storage space, I mean were already pretty limited but just an FYI.
