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

    I've heard the merits of rooting the phone, but since I'm a newb to this kind of significant technical programing I'm a little nervous. The reason I want to root is really just to get rid of all the boatware that the phone came with. So, essentially, I want to root, delete all that crap, and then unroot. Is that possible? And if I do and another update comes along is it going to reinstall all that crap on it?

    Also, if I just stay rooted what happens with the updates? Do I have to do them manually or can I let the OTA happen as usual?
