Hey guys...noob here. So far im loving the hell out of my Thunderbolt. I use to have the first gen of BlackBerry Storm which was a piece of crapo! Anyway..so I just wanted to know whats the big deal of rooting? What are your opinions?
I'm debating as well. I have read the complicated instructions. I get distracted easily with loads of kids and critters and just my luck I'll be at a crucial stage, someone will start talking to me and boom - I've ruined a $200+ phone. But the Blockbuster and VZW apps drive me nuts, especially if I plug my phone into my work computer to charge and Verizon pops up on the browser! I'm an intermediate computer geek - I set up the home network, and keep up with firewalls and antivirus and find fixes to the other problems that pop up from time to time.
I rooted my Samsung Fascinate so that I could install the leaked updates. As of now, I am happy with stock Thunderbolt. Earlier, I thought of rooting and installing cyanogenmod but I have decided to stay with stock sense for now... Btw is htcsense.com supporting Thunderbolt yet?
