    Big Thanks to DroidXCon for taking some personal time to help out with my noob mistake.

    I sent him a few $$ for his time and effort. He said he did not wan't it but, he saved me a big headache that is for sure. Hell if you wan't send him 2 or 3$ as a thanks for taking all the time to write the semi root program etc, and working on the rest of the goodness.

    Ok quick question with reguards to Titanium. Now that Im rooted. Im sure this would be a good time to do a backup.

    Do I want to do a backup of "all user apps + system data" Im assuming this is my fall back should something go wrong.

    I'm going to assume this has already been addressed, but I haven't seen it anywhere....

    I have the ED2 update, it was loaded on my phone when the VZW rep handed it to me. I know you can't root ED2, and I assume there's no easy way to revert back to ED1. I know on my DINC, you could bring up the bootloader screen and do a factory reset. I'm guessing even if I could so something like that, the ED2 update has already nested itself as the version to restore to upon a factory reset. Am I right in my assumptions?

    There is now a way to revert back from ED2 to ED1 I just did it and it works flawlessly. Very easy to do as well. It's at the XDA Droid Charge forum.

    Now I am going to use DroidXCon's root method and enjoy. I will be sending you a dontation shortly for all your efforts DroidxCOn and you can grab a Macchiato on me. Thanks.

    Just rooted and all is good...Big thanks to every one working on this...now its time to remove crapware.

    I thought I was rooted because I have the superuser app in my apps tray but when I go to load Titanium or busybox they say they wont work, used root checker and it says im not rooted either! Then I tried to use the soft root and it comes up with boomsh permission denied. What did I do wrong? I got the ! dance at the end of the first root attempt?

    Tbone, I had the issue with titanium said i was not rooted then deleted the files then tried to re do the autoroot and I had the boom sh fail error. You need to delete the boom sh line out of the data file. When you get it to successfully root and download TI you need to go to problems and the get busybox file and it should be working like a charm.

    With all that being said if you get in touch with DroidxCon he did a remote over my PC and fixed my mistake in about 2 minutes and another 2 I was re-rooted. He won't ask but send him a couple bucks via paypal for hooking up the community.

    Just wanted to thank DroidXcon and let him know the next macchiato is on me! I froze all the bloatware and my phone is running much faster. I have zero lag with Touchwiz and using about 188/328 MB on the ram

    When I freeze an app. Should I see some type of gain in the information displayed on the overview page of TI. I have froze about 5 things and none of those numbers are changing?

    So this will be my first Droid root. I've recently crossed over from BBerry and have some experience with custom software builds but first timer for Droid software. Would it be in my best interest to wait until the ED2 update issue has been resolved? Or go ahead with the downgrade and root? This site is awesome by the way!

    I dont know, in theory it should be ok but im not fully comfortable with the downgrade idea since we dont have a fix all package to recovery from a major mistake. And with this adding in the LTE radio firmware i dont know how this will effect things... but it seems harmless for now but im still weary about the idea... its up to you , as the user the responsibility for your device is in your hands. The community gives you options and its up to you to decide if you will accept the end result good or bad.

    Sorry if the answer is vague but like i said i dont want to push either way.

    Understood. I'm ok with the risk, just weighing risk against pro's is all. Guess I will wait a day or two and see if anything changes. Thanks again.

    Here's my glass half empty question. What if the guy who took the flash of the ED1 added other crap to his drivers? Malicious files, etc. Not sure if that's even possible, but people are just blindly using one guys flash. Am I wrong or just a worry wart?

    He thanks imnuts for the how to make an odin package tutorial. Someone with the knowledge needed to do something like that wouldn't have needed that tutorial in the first place. I trust the source.

    Just a question here. I know the phone has only been out a few days, but in your opinion, what timeframe are we looking at to get a workable recovery and a flashable debloated Rom? just curious. Thanks.

    I ran the method from post 4. I got the "[!] dance forever my only one" but did not get the SU app in the app tray. When running su from the $ prompt, I get "Permission denied."

    I tried the suggestion, quoted here,

    battery pull
    power up again
    then use a file manager to delete the following files from /data/local/tmp
    sh
    boomsh


    then try to run root again

    and make sure you are on ED1
    then had the same outcome. (The phone did not get the ED2 update, and I just confirmed that Build ends in ED1.)

    Any idea what's going on? Thanks.
