    I've got the HTC One S and I love it but I want to install all the pre-loaded apps T-Mobile put on there that I don't use.

    I looked at the other threads and I'm still unclear of how to do it.

    What does rooting the phone do?

    It's basically jailbreaking on the iPod/iPhone. Think of it as being a computer administrator on a Windows PC, however, rooting your phone voids the warranty at the expense of having total control over your phone

    So if I wanna do it, how do I do it and how hard is it for someone who has never done it?

    It all depends on the phone, try checking a little around this site or xda-developers.com. I'll try and find a thread about it for you.

    This is the only one I can find so far, seems a bit complicated but I'll try to look for more. On a side note, always remember that if you root your phone you NEVER EVER factory rest from the settings menu, I learned that lesson the hard way lol

    I saw that thread and went to the site it said, there was nothing there for my phone.

    Deletes everything on the phone, but if you do it through the settings while rooted, the phone won't boot

    no need to root it with your one s. go to settings, apps, all, click on the ones you dont want and then hit disable

    and dont root yet, that is my opinion. there is only one ROM currently for the one S and its unstable. just disable them for now until a stable Rom is released.

    I think he/she wants to root just to get rid of the apps, and I never thought of the disable button unless he/she wants to remove them for extra space

    make sure you dont disable the ones you need. such as phone and stuff. but just the apps you dont want. and if you updated the apps, you will need to uninstall updates first, then disable. everything should work fine. search this forum for what apps are safe to disable
