    I want to root my phone so I can start flashing different Roms and applying themes and so forth.
    Is there a root for the .901 build? and is it possible without having to go back to .886 or .893 or is that the only method of rooting this build at the current time ?
    Any feedback and info would be gratefully appreciated :biggrin:

    Not at this time. At least not one that most people know of.

    Either use the pathsaver which probably wont work since youre already on .901, or you can use RSD light to go back to .886 and then root from there using pathsaver

    You can use the pathsaver method, you just have to push the .901 fix file when trying to boot up to .893. Once you boot up .893 you will have root and you can then boot into recovery and flash the 901update file that gets loaded during the root process.
