What you saying? Unroot the phone? Is the ROM I referenced earlier not official stock but rooted?

Or in my case, mom, dad and husband.

I believe what he's meaning is since you can't up and drive down the street to fix her device, you should stay as close to bone stock as possible. I keep my mom rooted with custom recovery only so I can back up the device data in case of hardware/software failure. But she is bone stock at&t 4.1.2, which was a huge leap of change from 2.3 for her. She is 16 hr drive from me.

My wife has this phone and I've found the easiest to transition into android has been MIUI ROM for her. Everything is pretty stable and has the general functionality needed.

Not the latest and greatest since it's on 4.1.2, but works well.

That's rather rude and uncalled for. Just search around best threads get closed this is no different. also if you want advice don't mess with other peoples devices unless you're prepared for 24hr tech support.

Oh my. You weren't kidding.

I'm considering turning myself in. Better thank everyone now before I'm incarcerated.

Going to close this as users are expected to do their own research to make their their own determinations.
