    Why even bother? Any major updates?

    Am I blind, or is there nothing in that thread about what is actually in the update?

    Backup what data you can then try the new unbrick method. Choose th v7 bin file.

    Google "towel root. apk" to root the new V7 update, then manually download supersu or superuser from the play store. Also, you should also download busybox, and simply verify with root checker app.

    Thanks for the info, imo not worth updating anyway.
