Well, lately, I have missed my ROM flashing days from when I had an HTC Incredible, and decided to re-root, which worked great.
Then I flashed CWM using Root Tools in the Play Store. When I booted into recovery, it went to the triangle screen. Damn. THEN I decided to browse the XDA forums, and it would appear that if your phone took the 4.3 update, you're hosed and you can't do really anything. So now I am trying to get my phone back to working status.
Anyway, if you can't flash CM11 or other ROMs, what is the point of rooting the 4.3?
Thanks for your kind responses...
Root access does a lot of things:
Reasons to root 4.3:
Running rooted apps
Xposed framework with modules
Custom TouchWiz roms
App back ups
I could go on much longer.
Not having aosp isn't the worst thing in the world, especially when you still have good stock development on a device.
