    [h=2]I would greatly appreciate some quick guidance here. I can follow directions so I think I'll be good to go. I run a business and I simply cannot stay on top of this stuff as I would like.[/h]
    1. Is the Charge even worth the time to root/rom? Should I rather look at purchasing a different phone first?

    2. If I should keep it, just follow the above sticky for "How to ROOT your Droid Charge?" Is there a better, more update way?

    3. Should I install Odin as well?

    4. I simply do not have the time to try various ROM's. At least not at this time. So I would ask, I know it's personal preference; however, is there a "most popular" ROM I should just go with?

    5. Primarily, my reasons for rooting are:
    • Increased batter life (I already have the extended battery)
    • I have an unlimited plan and would like to implement a hotspot for free. (Suggestions here?)
    • Performance (which version of Android would you suggest?)
    Again, I am very grateful for any help.​

    Pretty bad when you reply to your own thread.

    I haven't really messed with the charge, but yes I would keep odin handy. Samsung had bad battery life on those phones, I myself have an og droid rocking cm7 or I use steel droid. Odin is a lifesaver and keep the stock system on your cpu for just in case purposes
