I've been an iPhone-user since 2008, and moved over to Android a couple of months ago. I went into the store to get an iPhone 4S, but walked out with a RAZR. It was a spontaneus purchase, but it's one of the best purchaes I've made.
My first thought when I got this phone, was to root it. Now, 2 months later, after reading thread after thread about anything that has to do with rooting, I still feel lost. I am hoping that someone could explain to me in more detail what the benefits or rooting are. I know the basic stuff, since I was jailbroken on my iPhone and probably did everything you can with an iPhone.
Ok first to the technical part. I have 2.3.5 and I'm not automatically receiving the 2.3.6 update, shall I update manually from one of the links I found on this forum? Or should I root 2.3.5 and then use the 2.3.6 update guide once I get the update?
Can someone explain to me in a more detailed way exactly what you can do or have done with your device after rooting it?
My main reasons for rooting are
- Clock CPU
- Custom ROM
Could you fill this up and give me more reasons to root?
I'm not expecting any replies on this, as I always tend to make my posts unnecessarily long, lol. I'm very greatful for anything you can teach me or inform me so I don't have to feel so lost in this jungle!
