I really want to root my device and play with custom ROMs. I'm not exactly skilled with modding phones but I'm proficient enough. What I can't figure out is WHY. Why is it so tough to crack this sucker?

Locked boot loader is the first difficulty second is nobody has done it yet (: it's under a relatively new os and it will take a while to find exploits. My razrm took a year.

In addition, people do this in their free time. It's not like they are going into work, and working on this day in and day out

I'm able to use ADB from my windoz pc to view the system files on my N3. However, since they are in a directory thats read-only, I can't mount/remount the directory for write privileges without SU!
