1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    OK, upgrade time is approaching and I plan on giving my brother my OG Droid. Its currently rooted with SS 5.4. My question is, do I have to flash back to stock in order for him to activate it?

    If you look under settings/accounts you can remove the existing account and add in a new one. A factory reset also removes all current apps while leaving the OS alone so I believe that method also would leave the phone rooted while requiring account credentials to get the phone going again. I believe you can just dial *228 and choose option one to provide the new number for it. Otherwise a Verizon rep could assist with that. I doubt the store rep would care if the phone was rooted, let alone even notice.

    Some roms have you register again, while other times I haven't had to. So that is an option too. Flash a new rom, register, then go back to SS if that's the one he wants.
