    I wanted to try my hand at rooting, but as soon as I did I was unable to text or receive calls. Did a few had resets and that problem was fixed. Going into Z4, I only get the option to root, even though I can give apps superuser permissions. So am I stuck at root or what? Am I SOL when the ota update comes out? I hope I am not screwed here.

    Still acting screwy. Opened Z4, only 1 button: root. Clicked it, it did its thing and rebooted. Opened Z4 and only option is root. I just want to unroot and wait on GB. :scared:

    Usually it does. The copy I got was fully downloaded and installed. I clicked root and it "did it's thing" and rebooted. No impatience on my end. I found a different copy which was "normal". I guess you just have to be careful where you download from.
