    I have one question, when is it expected to have root for ZVC, in short period of time?
    If its a long period of time, is the process to downgrade to ZVB hard? I saw the instructions but looks pretty confusing to me :(

    That is completely up to you. Matters if you want it right now or just wait till the zergrush is updated.

    When we root, it's because somebody has found an "exploit" -- which can be used for good or bad. We use it for good, to root our phones so we can be in total control. But phone manufacturers/carriers don't like that because they like to be in total control of our phones.

    But, some malware writers can use a root exploit to infect your phone.

    So, when manufacturers give updates, they also (usually) also block whatever latest exploits they know about -- which stops people from rooting their phones until another exploit is found.

    How long does it take to find an exploit? it's found when it's found. No OS is perfect, so there's something there somewhere, but how many people are looking, how much time are they spending on it? They may have other priorities.

    SuperOne Click uses zergrush exploit which is the same exploit we use in our one click root. It needs to be updated.
