Howdy all, I have been heavily scrutinizing the Rooting sticky, as I would like to root my Bionic. As the thread title says, however, I am need of some answers to questions that many here might see as fairly basic. I am not new to Droids, having had the OG Droid until launch day for the Bionic; however, I left my OG stock. I am fairly knowledgeable about computers, which may help a bit, but should be considered a novice in relation to manipulating this device. I am posting a list of 17 questions I have: Some of these were answered in the Root sticky, but I have not stricken them from the list as I assume that more input (if offered) would be helpful. I know that this is a lot of questions, and I don't actually expect any one to answer them all, but any help I can get concerning them would be greatly appreciated. Thank you very much. 1. SD (ext) in/out? 2. Titanium backup enough? 3. What files NOT remove (apk?) 4. Why matter USB back ‘stead of front on tower? 5. How not threaten OTA updates? What is process to ready rooted phone for OTA? 6. What needed/how to unRoot? Does unRoot restore to warranty – state? 7. Can factory – reset after root? Does factory – reset affect SD (ext)? 8. How, exactly, find all the bloat want removed? 9. How to return to warranty – state? How restore bloatware? 10. What are all necessary utilities? 11. What is a ROM in this specific context? 12. Will apps stop disappearing? 13. What is the difference between rooting and unlocking boot – loader? Does unlocking just mean can manipulate booting order and what apps are booted at startup? 14. What does it mean to ‘brick/unbrick’? 15. What is ‘flashing’ a mod, and why do it? 16. What is ‘superuser’? Do I need to browse for a file called this, and remove it? If so; when? 17. What is Busybox? Thanks again.
