Default [Q] Root + Custom Recovery

Hi Guys,

Wanna see how many of you guys on the OPO is running purely stock or already installed custom recovery + root?

Thanks!

Still contemplating whether to install TWRP + root.

Whenever I get a new Android device or one of my family members does, I always(if possible of course) unlock the bootloader, install a custom recovery and root the phone. When you do it, right after you bought it, there isn't any chance that you lose data. Plus, it's super easy.

Just my take on this.

Custom ROMs are of course a possibility, but most of the time I test a whole bunch and choose my favorite.

Current setup is Multirom with SlimKat and crDroid. It's amazing!

First thing you should do (after charging to 100%) is unlock the bootloader, install TWRP, and make a backup of the stock ROM. Do that before you even switch it on.
