Ok my ATT GN2 friends is it time to root?
The answer is yes if you want the latest & greatest android user experience because ATT etc carriers sure is heck aren't going to make it happen anytime soon.
Is rooting hard to do?
No its very easy.
What does rooting do for me?
It allows you to install custom roms with the most up to date base , No bloatware that slows OS function , customization , Themes , tweaks etc on your device.
So basically make device you spent lots of money on truly yours.
Whats the danger of rooting....will it void my warranty?
There is No danger in rooting because restore tar is available that holds factory out of the box OS so If you need to take device in for service simply Odin stock tar warranty isn't void.
