Since it seems the development community has matured (is maturing?) for this terrific device, I might be moving onto the root train (why not, I've been doing it all with each Android phone I've had).
I'm thinking of this mostly for the Spotify offline playlist access, since what I've been using for now (Zune Pass) will forever remain out of the Motoactv's reach, and I can only use the music I've used my monthly song credits for...
If I root, can I use and control Spotify playlists and continue to utilize the ACTV's launcher and fitness tracking? As in, can I stay in the exercise window, and use the music button to control playback? Currently, I love having what music I have on there on shuffle, and I just hit the Music hard button once to pause/play, and twice to skip to the next track. Alternatively, the Jaybird Freedom BT earphones can also skip to the next or previous track, and play/pause.
Can I continue to maintain that functionality (keeping my live exercise data on the screen the entire time) and control a Spotify playlist?
