    I have not tried this; however, other users on XDA have stated this method does indeed work. I just wanted to share.

    PRIOR TO ATTEMPTING; PLEASE UNDERSTAND THERE IS A RISK

    This method is controversial, thanks for posting the warnings here however. If you are asking yourself why would I do this...it may be best just to skip it for now.

    So I searched and searched to try and identify the benefit of having nand unlocked. I understand

    -some apps need it (ie Metamorph)
    -it allows you to make changes to /system
    -can execute commands from phone to add, delete, and make changes from phone terminal
    -can upgrade roms, radio, ruu without downgrade

    What else is it for? Is there anything inaccurate above?

    WHY AM I NOT EXCITED ABOUT NAND? WHY SHOULD I BE?

    inaccurate.

    Anyway, I tested this for two days (I've known about it longer than its been posted for), and something is left running somewhere, because my battery life in those two days was terrible.
