    yeah Mega has bobz kernel like it's predecessor did. it comes with 9 different governors and the 3 basic i/o schedulers. overclocking to 2.016Ghz and underclocking to 61Mhz. it's not quite as feature rich as some that newer beefier phones use but it'll get you by

    If you still need the tu_root file, I added it to my Dropbox. You can download it by clicking the file name below:

    tu_root_.zip

    I have the same model, yeah. There are a couple differences because of the different carriers (mine's from Sprint, instead of Boost), but for the most part, it's the same phone.

    Yes, if you run into any problems or you can't figure out what to do next, don't hesitate to post here before you attempt anything on your own. ;)

    Thank you, I did it. I've rooted a couple phones before. Mostly GSM phones. I installed the megatron rom. I'm a bit disappointed though.

    However, i do have one question. after rooting and before installing the megatron rom, i made a back up of the stock rom. Is there anyway I can restore all my apps & data on to this rom?

    you would need to restore your stock ROM with it being Rooted install an app called Titanium backup pro(its free). or any other application backup app.
    once the apps are backed up, restore the new Rom, be sure "just to be safe"
    boot into recovery and wipe dalvik cache and cache, it will ensure the old ROM aspects wont clash with the new ROM if you didn't care for app data you could restore them without data, but again that's just another way to ensure the old won't mess with the new
    and yes im rambling now ha ha another way to get your apps back is to ensure google will restore them once you sign into your Gmail on the device.
    it SHOULD begin installing all your old apps by default.

    now, why would you say such a mean thing D:

    the guide DOES work, several other users have used it and the staff have looked over it

    may i ask what caused you to say this? i can possibly correct the issue.

    Onced I signed in it didn't start downloading anymore. I actually had to downgrade. I had the HTC Sensation 4G from T-Mobile & one time I did a factory reset it & once I signed in it started downloading all my apps again. But I don't really know how to get it to do that. Any idea?

    in the installation guide from the google document you have this extra steps:

    12. Select "choose zip from sdcard"

    13. Locate (NewCWM.zip) from where you saved it on your SD card.

    14. Select "yes"

    Where can I download the newcwm? Is it needed?

    My Transform has been running VERY slowly at times. It started around the time I rooted it and was wondering if there might be a connection. I have reboot app and a hot reboot seems to restore the thing for a day or so, then it gets all sludgy again.

    I have never had a linux PC that behaved this way. It's like a cache is getting clogged up or confused...

    thanks for any suggestions...new to rooting in general...
