Has Any One Rooted Their Bionic Yet?

Have noticed a few on other boards that have. I've mentioned in other threads I'll probably wait until there is an SBF available to return to stock if need be.

Classic example of why ... from another board:

"Default Bionic NFL Mobile Force Close...

So I got my bionic today (its sweet!) - I rooted the second I got it home, ran the remove bloatware script... I'm not sure if NFL mobile was installed before I ran it or not, but it was not installed after the fact. I went to the market and installed it - Force Close immediately, every time I try to run it. I even rebooted and got the same problem.

Is this a problem with NFL mobile / Droid / or did I break something?"


Yeah, the guy did the old "Bull in the china shop" now he may have erased something important within the system files. A return-to-stock would be nice to undo the screw up.

Agreed I will wait for the SBF.

What if you're just freezing, not deleting? Run into an issue like that, just unfreeeze/defrost and you would be fine, right? Makes no sense to delete stuff IMO. there should be enough onboard memory that it can hang in there as long as I don't have to see that extra crap I'm happy, and if it speeds thing up in some areas bonus...

Yeah, if rooted I would just use Titanium to freeze/unfreeze. That guy ran a debloat script, written for another phone (albeit similar), and may have porked the system. Not saying that I have not done similar foolish things, but that is why I've learned ... have a way back.

I'm rooted and everything is fine.

However, I cannot seem to restore any backups from Titanium Backup. It's showing as having nothing there.

Probably a silly question, but did you transfer your TitaniumBackups folder over to the new phone?

New to Android OS, so after reading advice I'm waiting for a restore option as well. I'm comfortable with electronics, build my own computers, comfortable doing a lot of stuff, but still learning Android.

Can anyone direct me towards a root Wiki/FAQ on Android. Still need some of the terminology and understanding of all of it before I delve in.

For example, SBF?

I got my phone at 9am this morning and was rooted by 9:15am. This is my 5th rooted Android Device and by far the easiest to Root. I used the one click method.

LOL, nice list. Your app drawer probably looks like a gymnasium with 4 lonely chairs sitting in the middle of the floor.
