[Q] Limitations of Tethered root
I understand that the potential new exploit is "tethered" and means that if you reboot your device you will no longer have root. I am not clear on how that limits the things you can do. Some specific questions:
Can I edit the audio file that plays the annoying boot sound effects so it is quiet upon boot? Will that persist without root and without popping up constant error messages?
Can I install a different recovery? Custom roms? Safestrap?
I am trying to determine if rooting provides significant value to me at this time. Thanks.
