    Your bootloader is shipped locked. What that fast boot command does is unlock your bootloader which grants you near limitless freedom. You will be able to flash jellybean even though Verizon has not technically released it. You can flash custom kernels an ROMs meant to improve battery life. You can flash the newest radios which have cured many of data drops. Really more benefits than I can even possibly put into one post.

    I thought it was maybe something different than typical root. So its basically just rooting the phone? Can you direct me to the best root prog.? I have rooted and flashed my dx plenty of times.

    Im doing the battery conditioning at the moment. Went through 1 discharge im on my 1st full recharge ill fast discharge again tomorrow and then my final recharge.

    Well unlocking the bootloader and rooting are very different things (just ask owners of Moto phones). If you're interested, there's a sticky by SBenson in the development section on how to get the proper drivers set up so you can unlock the bootloader.

    Wish I would have seen this before I went to the store without my analog wallet.

    Also, is this true?

    Security – Google Wallet, in particular, has a vulnerability on rooted devices that could allow other apps to access your PIN and other wallet information. Google Wallet displays a warning message if you run it on a rooted device. If you’re one of the few people using Google Wallet for NFC payments, you may want to reconsider rooting your device.

    Can someone put up this apk again. I unlocked and reinstalled from a different link and now my free card is gone. Still had a few google dollars to spend.

    EDIT: I just read that reinstalling after 9/17 would result in loss of prepaid card.
    -Crap!

    Yes it is true. That said I'm rooted and use wallet daily. I just don't install stupid apps.

    Ok. I've got the latest version of Google Wallet (google wallet v1.5-r79 v5), but when I try to side load it I get an "App not installed" message. How do I get around that?

    No. I have a Galaxy Nexus. So I know it will work. I just can't get it to install.

    Why not just move it to /system/app through a root explorer? Change permissions to RW-R-R It installs as a system app anyway. Don't know why you just can't install it though. Weird

    Which means I have to root my phone...[sigh] And yes, it is weird that it won't sideload. I had this problem even before Verizon updated me to JB.

    My mistake. I just assumed you were rooted. ;) All the solutions I know around that error involve being rooted...

    I'm not afraid to root my phone. I've done it before. It's just so damn tedious. I've tried Wug's toolkit, and unfortunately it didn't work. I wonder if I should back up my data and factory reset my phone.

    In case you are unaware, Titanium Backup can now back up your unrooted phone's data - ADB required. Head over to the Titanium Track website for the news blurb.
