Has anyone upgraded their Focus with root access to the Lumia 900? What is the transition like? Is it a painful experience?
I do not want to lose the ability to sideload applications and wifi tether. I'm sure people are working hard on developing and gaining root access on this device but I don't want to pay 450 for something that may be stuck at stock.
save yourself the aggravation. Don't buy one. If root and side load are that important to you, this phone, this os , is not for you. We still have people cleaning cases with erasers...youre far ahead of us.
