So I know I'll probably get pounced on because I'm sure this has been asked and covered many times. (Secretly hoping that my mildly-non-noob-post-count will help me avoid attack)
I have seen that when you root you lose everything. It requires a factory reset etc. I only want to root at the moment to be "ready" for when I want to start kernel/rom-ing and to get setcpu going. I really don't want to start over again.
NOOBIE ? #1 = Is this something that later may not require a full reset... or will it always require a full reset? If the latter, I guess I'll just have to suck it up. If I can wait for an "easier" root, I will.
NOOBIE ? #2 = If Verizon send out an update for the phone and you are completely stock EXCEPT rooted... can you update and keep root, or do you lose root? Can you even update if you are rooted on this phone?
Again... please pardon the questions. If you want to go off on me... please be kind and just ignore this post. I am just looking for some small helpful answers from the smarter-than-me members here at DF.
