1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    Can anyone explain to me please what is the difference between the charge the way it came and if you root it. I don't know what root means. Thank you.

    Root doesn't change how the phone runs or operates - it will still look the same...it is like giving yourself admin rights on a computer vs guest priv's...you are able to access, edit, modify ALL files on the phone. It is these actions that can change how the phone runs / operates and that is where it can cause problems for the end-user if you do not understand the changes being made.

    one major thing rooting does is allow you to get rid of the bloatware that comes on these phones. i used titanium backup to freeze all the files that are safe to freeze from the same site thats posted above and my phone runs a million times faster.
