    Im pretty sure I know the answer, but thought I would ask here.

    After I root his phone and install everything, would you recommend deleting all the apps so that he wont get in trouble, like Superuser, ROM Mgr, Mobile Odin, or just put all of them in a file and tell him not to mess with it?

    Thanks,
    Byrd

    Put mobile odin in a folder. Can't really do too much with superuser. Definitely delete rom manager. It has the possibility of bticking this phone.

    Thanks for the info! BTW, why does ROM Mgr have the ability to brick the phone. I saw someone say that in another thread and did a search, but could not find out why. Is it automatically installed as part of CWM recovery system?

    Using ROM manager to temp flash CWM then wipe the data partition has the potential to lock up the emmc chip and hard brick this phone. This is due to a design flaw in the emmc firmware on the E4GT and a few other Samsung GSII class devices.

    Its also because rom manager is just flashing a recovery. Our recovery on this phone needs to be baked into a kernel. Unlike almost every other phone I know of

    All jb roms at the moment have problems with battery life. I would definitely hold off until something happens there. As it will become a headache when she complains about the low volume issue and the bad battery.
