I have a replacement phone showing up tomorrow and I am thinking the below is the best way to get it going. Would appreciate suggestions, advice or criticism. I am assuming it will come with 5.5.886 Get the Root Explorer apk on my SD card somehow. Can I just copy that off my current phone. Or I have TI....is that backup installable if I allow unknown sources and hit it with a file explorer? Boot it without the sim and get it Forever Rooted. Reboot from that, still no sim and double check the chmod entries in mount_ext3.sh. Go ahead and boot with the sim card in it, activate and drink coffee and wait for 5.5.893. (That will still install with root correct?) Or am I thinking wrong and I won't be able to do all that without a sim in it? After that I should still have root correct? Not concerned at this point with the latest OTA that is dribbling out.
