    Debating on Rooting or Not

    By the time my Fascinate got water damaged (today haha) I had become quite the expert at the rooting game and installing roms, kernels, themes, etc. It was like I had a whole new phone. I just picked up my thunderbolt today and was curious if I should root it already or keep it as is?

    I came from the fascinate, same as you got real into flashing... But i did it so much that i ended up killing my 3g reception, just went dead and had to get a replacement after going back to stock with no luck. Flashing is definitely fun but i dont want to screw up another phone, and this one is pretty awesome just stock, and gingerbread is coming soon. I probably wont mess with this one.

    Most people on here will tell you to root but I havent and I don't have any of the issues I have a stock battery and last all day no problem with 4g on 8-10 hours a day and only a few reboots until I did a factory reset and then none

    I came from the Droid 1 where I was rooted and flashing roms, but with my droid 1 I felt like I needed to because frankly it was a little slow and laggy on stock rom. But with my Thunderbolt, I'm sticking with stock cause it works well, sure I've had some random battery drains, a single random reboot, thankfully, but it's just so smooth and working great on stock, I don't feel the need to root it at this time.

    I've had my TB since the third day it was released. It does everything I need smoothly, quickly, with little to no hick ups. I am a hard core user and pretty much a geek, however until it starts giving me grief I won't be rooting anytime soon. This thing is sweet and fast just the way it is. Other than Netflix not running on froyo I'm happy. Gingerbread will be coming out in a few weeks or so and hopefully our TB's will be even better!
