Well, I read the links. It looks pretty straight forward. Bit confused on some things. On the phone, I can go directly to the "Developers Options" under the main menu and turn that function on or off at will. Why all the hum drum about going into the About Phone menu to the Software Version to hit it 8 to 10 times to get the Developers Options turned on? Also while watching the video on how to root it, I got a bit confused on the "shift right click, open a command window" at 2:08. I do not have that capability. Different OS maybe? Anyways, I can always get a command window through the Start Run menu.
If I root the phone, I know that I can restore it to it original stock based on the first sticky in this forum. However, someone indicated that even if you return it to stock, there will be indications that it was rooted. But I could not tell what version of the phone that he was referencing.
Do I/Should I back up anything first before I start? Not that much on the phone right now, just my Contacts, a couple of pictures, and some apps that I downloaded. Home screen setups and things like that.
