Well I finally did it. I woke up two mornings ago and said to my self, I want root. So I took a day and a half doing research, collected everything I needed, and began. Achieving root went so well I wanted more. Custom ROM came next, then the theme.
I feel like I've discovered the wheel. I don't see why I have always been on the fence about rooting. I recommend to all of you fellow androids out there, take full advantage of the power you have in your hands!
