Root my US Cell Galaxy S 2.3.4
Oops, accidentally posted this as my greeting so am re-posting here.
First and foremost I am the absolute newbie. I just found out today that Android is Linux based.
Ya, that new.
So, I am thinking about rooting my US Cellular Samsung Galaxy S running 2.3.4. My main reason for wanting to do this is to install Avast security and remove the incredibly annoying Google and Samsung*apps*that I want off my phone.*
Little background on me, I freaking hate windows, but am still forced to use it on my pc because I don't know enough (meaning anything) about Linux to switch, and being stuck using windows based programs for my business. But over the years I have learned (mostly by trail and massive error) to shut down the worst of windows invasive options. I would also like to do this with Android.
First, my Android upgrade came with a huge warning that this upgrade is for US Cell users ONLY. It will not work with any other carrier's Galaxy S.*
Second, can a newbie like me figure out how to delete those annoying programs I want gone.
Third, if this does brick my phone, do I have a chance in Hell of un-bricking it?
Thank you for any and all help!
