please forgive a stoop question:

from the original thread, one of the options of the toolkit is to root. So do you mean that we would need to unlock the bootloader BEFORE rooting?

No offense meant, but why the need for a tool to root? Once you unlock, you will have a custom recovery. All you need to do is flash a Rom. All the Roms, including a stock (fully bloated) Rom will come rooted and ready to rock.

You need root before you can unlock.

No offense taken. You are correct in that you need to Unlock the Bootloader using Adam's method before you can do anything and that process will provide root, busybox and TWRP Recovery. This isn't however JUST a tool to root, you can use it to backup your device, push/pull files, flash newer recoveries when available, flash an insecure kernel for adb root commands, make a nandroid backup directly to your pc, pull your Internal Storage to your pc and much more but I dont think I need to go on anymore.

The verizon devices are a bit different as you have to unlock/root/busybox/twrp before using it where other devices can do all that from scratch using the toolkit but I have been asked by ALLOT of people to provide it and so I have. There is soo much more that you can do on your device than rooting and flashing roms. If you don't want to use it thats fine

Mark.

Yes, you do, actually.

Just try to run Casual on an unrooted device. Unless I am sorely mistaken, the main purpose of flashing the Revision3 rom prior to running Casual is to get root privileges on the phone.

That was my whole point from the beginning. You don't need "to root" to unlock. You flash Revision 3 which is already pre-rooted. The whole unlock process gets you unlocked, rooted, and a recovery. At what point do you need a tool to root?
