Root my evo... should I? Is it safe?
Hi, I didn't want to post this in the dev section, but hopefully you guys can help me out here.
My nephew has a evo 4g (sprint)...with 2.3.3 stock on it...He wants me to root/custom rom/theme it for him....I have a t-mo vibrant I've done it on many times, however I'm not sure if it's safe to do it on the evo??? My Vibrant is "unbrick-able" for the most part and I'm wondering if the evo is about the same or not...I googled evo 4g brick and seems it mainly happens with "RADIO" updates?? not sure exactly what that is, but, if I refrain from "RADIO" updates, can I..
1.. root his phone and put on recovery (or evo's equivalent) and flash him a rom/theme without taking a huge risk?
2 Does the evo have the same option as my vib, to flash back to a completely stock phone, in case of a warranty issue?
3. Synergy seems to be the popular/stable rom for this phone...??..any thoughts...
4. Will he have any random issues I can't think of right now?? (for example...any txt/mms/gps/ect bugs?)
Any help would be much appreciated...thanks in advance
