A few questions:
1. Does it matter if I activate the phone then root it or root then activate it? I know rooting basically does a factory wipe so I want to root as soon as I get it to save me the hassle of needing to backup things I've done to the phone and then rooting later.
2. The threads I've read (not sure if they are outdated) states that rooting trips the Knox counter with the latest OTA from Verizon; is this true?
3. Is this the directions for rooting? The Universal Root De La Vega thread?
I also saw a youtube video/post about kingo? Is that easier/better? I also saw another post about vRoot because kingo no longer works?
