So, I had the D1 and rooted it/rom'd it/flashed it/themed it over and over again. I bought the GNex on release date because I was really excited about the potential it had just like the D1 did back in the day. I tried the WUG approach and my phone was just not cooperating, can't unlock/root it. My question is this: What are the REAL, MAJOR benefits of rooting right now? Don't get me wrong, I'm SURE in the pretty near future there will be some real steps made in this endeavor, but right now, what are they?
Obviously wireless tethering and overclocking, although as far as I know, you can't really OC the GNex too much right now, heck I had the D1 up to 1.25 regularly. Theming I'm sure is something being done right now. Battery life extension tools may be something, but other than that, what's the BIG appeal right now?
