text format in stock email client
Hello everyone, thanks in advance. I flashed both graffixnyc's 4.4.2/.3 GPE RUUs and everything works as expected. Having said that, is there a way to add italic, bold, underline (,etc) text in stock email client?

S-off isn't needed to:

- To achieve root
- Flash ROMs


S-off benefits:
- Needed to flash radios (SuperCID also needed to flash a radio that does not match your version)
- Needed to SIM unlock
- Needed to flash modified hboot (such as to remove the red warning text form boot screen)
- Needed to flash firmware components (not the ROM)
- Allows you to run any RUU (other carriers, or even previous RUUs, which is not normally allowed by version check)

The last one is important, since s-off essentially gives you more recovery options if things go south.

But s-off means all security checks are off by definition. This even includes device check, which means flashing a ROM or mod for another device is possible. I've seen folks flash a ROM for a different device with s-off, and brick their phones (due to different partitioning, etc.). As long as you are very careful to only flash things intended for our device, you will be fine. But anyone with s-off (or interested in s-off) needs to understand this.

Or they can read and follow the rules. Not sure what's the point of this thread but it seems to be pointless. Just saying...

This thread is resurrected after almost a year of inactivity. I think its more a misunderstanding.

There is a "ask all questions here" thread stickied by Kidcarter.
