    :thinking::thinking::thinking::thinking::thinking:

    - Is it possible to select text from a received text? Such as an address to copy and paste into nav.

    - Possible to select multiple pictures to delete/send?

    - I keep seeing "root" "rooted" - what does that actually mean? Whats the benefit?

    "Rooting" is the process in gaining root access to your phone. In Linux, the admin account is called root. Rooting the phone is essentailly giving you admin rights to the entire file system.

    If you forward the message you want to copy from (long press on message -> forward) you can then copy any text from it you like (and then cancel out of forwarding the message)
