Today is the day.. Root will be here.. then off with the bloatware.. man I love this phone..
Is rooting hard to do? And Is there a chance of messing up my phone.. I really want to get rid of all these pre installed apps.. Thats the main reason why I am considering rooting..
No, it's not hard, it's difficult to F- up your phone. I had no linux experience whatsoever and I was able to root the "hard" way on my original droid easily.
Fantastic! Thunderbolt is ordered... now the waiting game is in full swing #fret
I'm not rooting until they get recovery working.
One of the first things I did was install a market Gingerbread KB. Not as good as the CM7 one, but that stock one was just nasty. May practice my masochism and try 8pen again
I've been... THUNDERSTRUCK!
I'm starting to get used to the Sense UI, though i wish i could use the senseui.com website i want to play with it... but besides that htc sense does have alot of nice things built into it. I dont like their facebook app, but i do like how it integrates all the text messages and voice messages together. That's kinda nice. I was pissed at first cause i couldnt install visual voice mail but then i figured it out. It definately takes some getting used to but it will work for the time being.
The speaker is nice, it's loud and sounds okay. It doesnt seem as bass filled as my og droid, but it may be because of the rom i am using with the dsp manager built in.
They quoted on XDA:
We have write to /system on two production devices, from from the store. We do not have a working recovery yet, no release will be done until then.
Just though i would post about my battery use, My phone has been off the charger for almost 5 hours at this point and is at 60%. The reporting is saying that 71% of that use is the display, so i'm going to adjsut the settings and watch the usage.
right above that:
We have perm root.
If you go into the chat room this is the title in there.
[We have perm root, just no recovery. Hold your horses, details this weekend]
