Quick question, does rooting and flashing ROMs decrease security. Or should people who bank or purchase things online not root or flash ROMs? Cause of you are granting all these 3rd party apps administrative abilities can't they just put in extra stuff that can log pw's etc and send it back?

Sweet! Just rooted my Sprint Note 2. The instructions and videos were straightforward, I don't think you can make it any easier
Thanks

Now, I just gotta find a similar to stock looking ROM, debloated and keeping the SPen function lol (JellyBomb color scheme is a bit much although I love all the features)

Hmm... root installed but TWRP didn't install. I've tried it twice and it says success, even tried a different cable. Trying another PC now.

Anything different since this phone has the latest OTA now?

Nope. It says success on the second PC as well. No TWRP. Just the stock recovery. I have tried the rename option as well but it says no such file or something like that.

Think I figured it out... it's overwriting them on the stock ROM. guess I should read instead of just watching the video. HA!

Default nice

Your videos were on point my friend. Got the Note after years of having an iphone and didnt really know where to start. Clear and easy to follow instructions, wifi tethering up and running too. Thanks

Thank you for the videos! Fantastic & easy tutorial to follow. I couldn't be happier. I haven't spent too much time learning about rooting and roms, however, it seems that a recurring favorite appears to be this JellyBomb! In fact, my wife is sick and tired of me running around the house and randomly shouting out, "JELLYBOMB!".

Anyway, after just downloading it last night and getting everything seemingly up and running fine, I'm getting a Trojan virus warning from my Webroot Secure Anywhere app, stating that SuperSU is an 'Android.SMS.FakeInst.' Trojan. Anyone else encounter this or have any idea why that warning would come up? I was about to go back and do a factory re-set and reflash this "JELLYBOMB!" rom, but was sort of hoping to have this figured out first.

Thanks in advance for any help and thanks again QBKING77.com for the videos!

Just an FYI, I found this posting in the bugs section for the android-wifi-tether google code page. Uninstall Android-Wifi-Tether if you have it, then install from this APK.

http://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=9390190389996027907

I have done so and it works for me. Occasionally it shuts itself off, and I haven't had the time to look into it yet.

Works on my stock rooted rom.

Also, what is with these reCAPTCHA's? Normally I can read them fine. This post took me 4 tries...
