I am currently on mk2. Now that there is a method to keep root, is it worth the trouble of upgrading to nc5? When nc5 came out there was a lot of complaints about performance. Has the new stock rom settled down? Any recommendations are appreciated

Don't do it. I regret doing it. If Surge finds an exploit for the MK2 bootloader, yours will most likely never be cracked.

When I used surges nc5 method I kept my mk2 bootloader. I believe I can go back. I think his first nc2 did upgrade the bootloader.

How are you liking nc5?

If we can keep root and the mk2 bootloader, was wondering if it's worth the trouble to flash nc5

So far so good only had one freeze but was streaming Bluetooth while surfing then got a text. Like the full screen album art on lock screen and white icons.
