    S-on = a locked phone, can't root it. S-off = an unlocked phone that can have custom roms. The S part is specific to HTC.

    I have some questions about rooting:

    1. Is there any other benefit to rooting besides the fact that you can install custom ROM's?

    2. If I rooted my Rezound when I get it, can I enable/disable 4G like the Evo 4G has from Sprint? (This is assuming Verizon doesn't already have a widget for it. I don't think they do but I may be wrong... I also heard you can disable it in settings menus but that's annoying to go through EVERY time.)

    it will have a widget.

    see post 5 about custom kernels. Custom kernels is what saved the thunderbolt battery life!

    Isn't a kernel and ROM the same thing?

    no, roms usually use a specific kernel that they have with the rom that will improve battery life and power and speed.

    but for example tiamat makes alot of kernels for alot of different phones and you just flash them like you would a rom.

    So pardon my ignorance as I have droidx for now. So this phone has an unlocked bootloader? and root? So custom kernels will be here on release day huh?


    edit: droid-life says that they can not confirm bootloader status, is that dated info?

    I have a droid x as well but my understanding is that s-off gets us full root and unlocks the bootloader. That would make custom kernels possible.

    the ability for someone to make a custom kernel will be, but the phone isnt out yet...gotta wait for developers to make em first.....well also have to wait for htc to release the kernel source....

    No S-Off

    That is a screen shot of a dev phone. Misleading, to give him the benefit of the doubt. Certainly speaks to his reliability as an "engineer". In other words, NOT.

    We have a couple people getting them in their hands now, how easy is it to check? Hell I'm going by VZW later to get a phone for my wife, I'd be happy to check one.

    I don't think developers can make a custom Sense kernel until HTC releases the source code for the Rezound kernel. But if an AOSP rom is ported to the Rezound you could use an AOSP custom kernel if someone has made one. Honestly though the stock Sense kernel that comes with the Rezound will probably be pretty good. HTC builds good kernels.
