    I was just curious... if I root the Inc2, will I have to reinstall all apps, reactivate etc? (I'm on pageplus if that matters)

    I am on VZW so I am not 100% sure if it would need to be reactivated.

    I never have had to reactivate mine though

    If you just simply root your phone then no it wont erase your apps or anything, unless you are on the latest Android 2.3.4.

    But Google Play should automatically reinstall them for you.

    yes, I'm on 2.3.4, so I'm assuming I have to some how downgrade to 2.3.3 before rooting? Still no rooting for 2.3.4?

    Yup, it seems there's no other way to root a dinc2 except from 2.3.3.
    If you're on 2.3.4 I think that means you'll blow away your phone - all tweaks and apps.

    You won't have to reactivate, though. Your network will recognize your handset regardless of the OS you run.

    I'm still on my Droid 1, studying up on how to hotrod my dinc2. I won't lose anything important, but I feel for anyone who's had their phone for a while before diving in. You can't just root, you basically have to commit to a new ROM.

    Which one? That's the question.

    downgrading your will loose everything because you have to flash a older RUU.
