    Love me G2 and it seems to do everything I want it to do.

    Main reasons to root?


    Can I go back to standard anytime I want?

    Why I root all my devices:

    *Block ads with Adfree
    *Freeze or remove bloatware
    *Viper4Android (improve music sound quality)
    *Xposed Framework (lots of great mods)
    *full phone backup in custom recovery
    *Camera mods
    *Custom ROMs (improved performance, UI customization)
    *Custom kernels
    *Automate tasks (launch maps when GPS enabled; disable sync, WiFi, data when screen off, etc) with Tasker or MacroDroid
    *control app permissions
    *various apps that require root

    You can unroot from within SuperSU.

    Where did you get AdFree? Version i side loaded says its too old and to update...
    Also, I highly recommend rooting the phone, it makes so many customizations.

    Also, OP, don't do a stupid thing like I did (wasn't thinking about it)....i deleted my google keyboard (backed up of course) because I had swiftkey installed and wanted to get rid of the keyboard popup in the corner...set a pin encryption on the device, when it rebooted, it wanted a pin, but no keyboard...so I had to hard reset it...phone isn't toast, just have to be creative...if I had setup a bluetooth keyboard before, I would have been fine...live and learn I guess
