    lost root access and was not able to root the device after installing this rom even using the super one click program problem with usb debugging on the debugging icon would dissapear in the middle of root process and the program could not find the phone after that but if you dont need your device rooted this rom is very nice faster and cleaner than 2.2 phone is shipped with new features were great

    I've seen a video on how to revive super bricked phones that won't even turn on. Look up mobile tech videos on youtube. It seems like a big process. The guy takes apart the phone and has to hook up wires to some thingamajig. I don't think your going to like what you see...or maybe your already aware of the process...but if not check it out.

    The usb problem is intermittent. I can get a good usb connection most of the time. If usb starts acting up, pull out the battery and start over. It usually clears out the problem. If you wait for a good usb connection you will be able to root. I didn't have a problem rooting my on first try.

    Other than the usb issue this GB rom is running great. All my apps are loading up faster and running better. I have lost no functionality, except CWM. In fact apps I couldn't run (like the heavy game ShadowGun) run good.

    I'vealso noticed an improved battery life, more free memory, and a stronger signal strength.

    Cricket runs off of Sprints towers not Verizon. Sprint is switching to LTE as well.
    I doubt Cricket will sell any 4G phones this year seeing that they are still testing it but with wifi modem(?).

    Can anybody help with getting my computers to recognize my phone?
    Every time I plugin the phone to try to use odin. It says it's not recognized. I've tried it on my desktop and laptop. Installed the samsung r915 usb driver too after the failed attempts, still did not work.

    Info- I have Cricket Indulge.
