Just wanted to take a second and introduce myself... to myself??? I made the transition to android last week after packing an iOS for the past few years even though I really wanted to get android so that I could design/implement/build/deploy my own stuff directly to the phone without having to jump through apple shaped hoops. My background is .net/delphi (daily) and java (every so often) so I figured I should be able to hit the ground running. However, before I start doing anything I wanted to run a few things by you all just to make sure I have read and understood everything as I should have.
I just got my AT&T GS4 and have verified using *#1234 that my firmware version is indeed the latest crappy "MF3" type, and as such I am left with two options (1) Root my phone without "loki-doki" ( i.e. the only way to revert changes/bad ROMs ) and pray or (2) dont...
I've seen a few posts of people confirming the root process works via the SD card, but then what? Are there any ROMs that are stable enough that you would recommend to someone who absolutely can not afford to brick their phone?
Any helpful advice will be greatly appreciated as I'm looking forward to start contributing to the cause as soon as possible.
