I get used to rooting and wiping phone in just few minutes without any problems or worries - with Samsung i5700.
Here on the other hand, I read that bricking is super easy, rooting takes long time (like preparations to do one), also problems with loading standard soft...
Is it so, because that phone is quite new and development is still in run or is the soft is so complex that I shoudn't really wait for "one-Click-root"?
well compared to the spica, the htc is more complex to understand, given that the i5700 had bl unlocked from the start, "s-off" (it didn't even had s-on) easy flashing utility, and as crappy software I can't even imagine, it was a good phone for the understanding of the android, but not for everyday use
On the other hand, the V is hTC so rooting is a tad more complex, and we have no solution as of now for s-off, but for the main parts can be flashed or changed. One click root is impossible atm, but you have it with a bit more clicks
. also you will need to use fastboot quite often if you flash like mad anything that comes
The V is practicaly brand new, so development has just started, but there are good signs for the future
