    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.

    This post is Incredible 2!

    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!

    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.
