I should start by saying this is about a Droid and a LG Optimus V. I have a few questions about the ever wonderful root. I have heard many wonderful things about this magic, and like all things there are bad things that begin to surface upon a simple google search. When the Droid first came I out I got one. At that time I had not heard of rooting. Later a friend of mine got himself a Droid. With his magical powers he summoned root to his device. It was sweeet! This joker was doing flips and shit and playing Mario64 with a wiimote. Well, about 2 months ago he starts to have problems. Problem 1) His power button stops working. Not root related....as far as one would think. Problem 2) The only way he can navigate his phone is by holding one finger on the screen and using the D-Pad. Problem 3) He cannot send text messages or receive calls; but, he can make calls. Now with this happening I am starting to second guess rooting. I know it's on a completely different device, but if it can happen to that one what is stopping it from happening to mine? Now I'm not sure what all he did to it, but I am confident in telling you he know what he is doing. All I am asking is what is the possibility of something like this happening to me. I also had another query but alas I forgot...will edit when I remember.
