    Not true. You always run the risk of bricking the phone making it unuseable. If the ROM you download gets corrupted it could cause a bootloop, not terminal but annoying nonetheless. You will void your warranty. If you don't use a custom ROM you shouldn't lose the OTA updates. If you root, don't delete the "bloatware" apps, just disable or freeze them. Usually if you follow the directions closely you can root your phone with little to no problems. Good luck!

    Yeah, mybad, I forgot to mention that but yeah you do run the risk of bricking your phone if you do not follow directions correctly.


    Jcase method is pretty tough but they've made a new easy method but even for me its still hard. Ive done everything by the book and it does not install properly onto my DNA. Quiet annoying really...

    Alright that's good to hear. I probably won't get a custom Rom, for some reason the stock Rom seems okay to me. So I'm probably just going to root. Thank you for your replies.
