    Default Should I do it?

    I've been really thinking about having my evo lte rooted and installing meanbean. Is there any reason not to? I don't hate my phone right now. The only real complaint is the black screen when making phone calls and checking voicemail. I just keep reading all the good about meanbean and haven't seen any bad. Can anyone talk me out of doing it? Thanks for the help

    This my daily work phone. Though work only really involves email, phone, text, voicemail.

    I don't think it's quite possible for me to tell you not to do it!!!! LOL....I should have done it months ago.

    I've been wanting to do it myself for the past month, but i don't have a 32 bit OS to unlock the phone first, and I'm not too comfortable running an OS of a LiveCD or even Ubuntu off a USB stick.

    You could just make the minimum size partition for Ubuntu on your main hard drive. The CD or USB versions are pretty stable though, I wouldn't expect to see them randomly crash or anything halfway through if that's what you're worried about.

    MeanBean can be installed s-on. You can unlock the phone through HTC Dev without fiddling with the 32-bit OS nonsense. It is recommended to be s-off but not necessary.

    My advice as always is to not root your device...however, if you think you need to (which frankly, I don't see why) root for whatever reasons - just take a look inside the Google Play Store.. there are enough applications for you to do pretty much anything a rooted device does. Plus, unknown problems.. and you void your device warranty.

    Think about it.

    I rooted a couple of days ago using Regaw's method. Was pretty painless. I'm on Mean rom now, second full day. I like the rom overally, but so far I'm not blown away by the battery performance. But I'm not going to form any judgments yet because I just now realized I hadn't gone back in and turned off auto brightness or changed to CDMA only after the ROM flash. That and it usually takes a couple of days for a Rom to settle and such. So for now I'm happy with it. If I decide to, I can always flash back to the stock Rom. Mean does have those expanded notifications in the bar, which are pretty sweet.
