    Hey guys, I like this phone but the space limitation is driving me crazy. I followed a guide where I rooted with motorchopper but it didn't fully work.

    What I mean by that? Well I have superuser so its not like it's not rooted but Link2SD throws the virual external memory (emulated memory) error whenever I try to move apps to my sd card. I bought a 16Gb class 6 Gskill sd card so it's not like the phone can't handle it.

    The wierd thing is that AppmngrIII can "move" my apps to the SD card but I don't know if that app actually moves everything or not.

    So my question: Are there any working roots for the metroPCS version, if so can I get a link and where could I go to get a factory ROM for this phone so I can root again using another method

    Have you partitioned the card?

    yep I did all the directions. Tried it with Ext2, ext3, Fat32 for the secondary partition, nothing.

    They have had many guides on how to root with motochopper and i've tried them but I have a sneaking suspicion its just for the Tmobile version

    Motochopper stopped working after the latest update. Saferoot works for the update.

    I can't even update my phone to the latest update. This motorchopper stuff created more hassel.

    Where can I find the OEM ROM for Metro F3. If I were to flash it, would it erase all my stuff, contacts and all?

    Link2Sd makes breaks the update. I would recommend reverting to stock and starting over:
    here's my experience how to for t-mobile, but that thread also has the KDZ for MPCS F3

    Wait does the stock you have here work for MetroPCs as well?

    Also, you should be using "Link" instead of "Move". You cannot move applications. Check the All Things Root forum and it will explain why.
