    I'm interested in rooting my Charge. This'll be the first time I've attempted this.
    My question is though when I'm looking through my phone's info I see to different things.

    My baseband version is still ED1
    However my Build Number is ED2

    Which on of these am I looking at?
    your build, you will need to install either a custom kernel or a custom rom
    may i suggest

    Thank You^^;

    I'll give it a shot.
    Assuming I don't brick the device I should always be able to restore it to "Factory Default" and try again.

    if you are in a custom rom never do a factory restore,,,there is a seperate flash to recover to stock.

    but if you follow directions you will be fine

    If you want to root do you still not update it or is there a way to get around it and still root?

    +1. I'm thinking about getting a Charge very shortly and definitely would like to know whether I still need to do this or not. Considering all the ROMs listed in the Droid Charge Rooting, ROMs, and Hacks forum, I'm guessing no?

    Yes I too am considering getting a Charge and would like to know if it's OK to allow the OTA updates now?

    IOW, the root wizards have figured out a way to get around the ED2 problem.

    (Edit: I just saw in another ED2 thread that it says not to worry... rooting ED2 is no longer a problem. Phew)

    Note: I may never root this phone... I'm not super eager too, it just depends if anything isn't working well enough for me, in which case I *might* consider rooting.

    I rooted my Samsung Charge with Gummy 1.8.5. I was EE4 Stock. Very pleased that I did. The phone is MUCH faster. TouchWiz and the Verizon bloatware slowed the phone down terribly!

    A few tips using Odin. If at first the 'kernal' fails and you see the yellow icon depicting connecting the phone to a computer - do not panic. Odin is very very picky. I think I had to attempt to flash the 'kernals' 1-10 times each before I received a successful flash.

    What the hell, MODS? This thread is confusing the heck out of people. It was stickied to help people, right? Well its outdated and is confusing. Please de-sticky and remove this thread.
