    Just rooted my Precedent, thanks for making it so easy. I did have to log out of Linux and boot Windows but I guess nothing is perfect. Lol!

    Can you root using your phone or do you need a computer?

    Ok So I followed what the read me said and I did it. I am new to android new to all of this stuff! Ive always been a computer kinda nerd so I figured id try it out... So I was able to use a wifi tether for my laptop and it worked great~!.. My question is this phone usually used sprint, is there a way to make it able to use other towers? I have shitty service at my house because its sprint... I know that verizon team mobile etc have great service at my house- so I was wondering if thats possible, also now that my phone is "rooted" I can tether my question is what other things can I do? And how lol I am so lost at all of this and trying to learn

    I get an "invalid image type" message whenever I place the pda.tar in the PDA box. Is this normal and should I proceed with the flashing? Which options need to be checked, and which components go in which box?

    How could you be so opportunistic as to force innocent bystanders such as myself to go to your website to get that download. I mean seriously its as though you actually want people to visit your page or something. :D (Thank you very much for posting that by the way)

    I am not butt hurt in the slightest, thanks for asking. Hemorrhoids can be caused by sitting for long periods of time and obesity, among other things.

    Here is another free host that I uploaded the file to, only click the download button, fill in the captha, click again and the *.zip file is yours. No waiting a whole a 20 seconds to start the download, OMG!!! :cool:

    I have a noob question on rooting.

    When I root my phone, what will be deleted? Contacts? Pictures? Apps? Etc. I just need a general idea of what to back up/copy down.

    Thanks guys!

    Using the method above will restart your phone just like it was when you opened the box it came in. The only difference will be you have root access.

    Back up your contacts via Google so you can just sync them again.

    Did you do all the steps in the read me file for AreaRom? You have to do the odin part, then goto recovery mode and do a install with ClockWorkMod, then do a factory reset. Make sure you read the "Read Me" File included in the AreaRom zip. If your still having issues then goto the AreaRom chat room and they can help out (you can find it on there site).
