    Does anyone know if the EasyRoot app that can be downloaded in the marketplace is legit? It seems to good to be true, not sure if I should download it.

    It's legitly problematic. Just install SPR thru RSD and flash a rooted Rom to gain root. A little more work but none of the issues Easy root and Rom Manager have

    Bingo - What Tallica said.

    Every rom/kernel/theme can be installed with Sprecovery. Follow the simple rules listed on almost every rom/kernel page to install and you'll have no issues. Rom Manger & Clockwork have a tremendous number of issues. Easy Root is said to be a pirated copy of Dmupdater. The DM team warns of possible bricking because the issue that was lifted was a "not ready for prime time" copy. I will say however that I've seen no reports of bricks on this or any other forum associated with Easy Root. But there is a question as to it's legitimacy.

    Sprecovery instructions:

    - Put the file of interest on your sdcard. Do not put it in a folder.
    - Rename it to update.zip (watch for windows naming it update.zip.zip).
    - Reboot into recovery
    - Select: Install
    - Select: Allow update.zip installation
    - Select: Install /sdcard/update.zip (deprecated)
    - Select: Reboot

    - Enjoy!


    Don't forget to go back and rename the file to something you will recognize later as you may need it again someday.
