Hello, I am just asking for opinions here. My G3 will be here in a few hours and I will be rooting it immediately. I used IO on my G2 and it worked fine. But does anyone see any upsides or downsides of Towel or IO? Thanks!

towel is a simple apk that doesn't even require a reboot.

Towelroot as it looks to be incredibly simple.
