Hi Folks, I got my N7105 a couple a days ago, and would like to root it, I dit that stuff before whit my I9000, flashed several custom roms
and never had any issues. Now, they more I read about rooting my new divice, they more confused I get,
I just want to root so I can use Titanium Bakup and other apps, I wont flash some custom rom's just yet, in case there is a hardware problem
and I have to use the warranty, and there is nowhere a stock rom for my carrier, Testra Australia, to find.
So, that is what I intend to do: root by using this methode: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1955423 using opion 2,
maby later install this: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2028103
I know there is always a risk in doing stuff like this, but do I have to fear that my IEMI could get lost or somthing like that ?
Is it possible to make IMEI backup befor rooting ?
Thanks

sorry for my bad english...

Sv: Confused about rooting
Wrong forum.

Anyway... Use part two, then before flashing anything else http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1946915 This is the only way for our phones to do a efs backup.

if youre not comfortable yet on rooting your phone then stick with stock first. this is the common reason why people are having bigtime problems with their phones when they do root and not that comfortable at it..

Thanks Mate, My phone is rooted and bakup is made...
all went smooth and well...
I may will flash in a couple of weeks, when I'm certain that there is no warranty issue...

Thanks again...
