@scott I am with you on rooting. Seems easy and just haven't done it yet. I am even with you on the boostrap. Seems easy to download and use. Where I get stuck is some of the last steps with moving around zip files and the like....just a bit confusing and I'd like to see either a more detailed procedure on youtube vid. I found some vids of the onestep root and that looks very easy. But have not found a vid of everything that happens after that. Still doing some homework...Hopefully I'll find something that makes me comfortable because honestly the Verizon version is a dog sometimes!!!
