I have been trying to root this phone for 2 months . The most successful attempts in the last 2 days, at 70 to 73 percent. Only to have my bubble popped worse than before. At least before numerous times the phone would stop the process and reboot,requiring a start all over. But now once it stops , the only option is to factory reset. Which takes forever to reinstall all the apps. Even though they are all backed up . Has anyone else had the same problem? Please tell me I am not alone . LOL But I do praise and thank the the people who are making the headway we are. Also , which is faster , reinstalling from the cloud , or from the SD card which requires Google Play store ?
