    Please don't use Easy Root, it is more problematic than it is worth

    It might work but the Rescue Squad here deals with more cases of people losing root access after using easy root, it is better to root using the SBF it's a fail safe method

    I have always used the sbf method. Never fails as long as you do everything right...plus there is something very satisfying about doing it the old fashioned way. Kind of like changing the oil in your car at home.

    so what happens when you lose root? And if its nothing bad (where i can just restore to factory) i will wait till it happens. But so far, i havent had any issues.
