Evo Shift 4G. Rooting from 2.3.4 was so hard for me. Literally took 2 days of work to do. Glad I did though!

The DROID eris. It took me a bit to find out what root was so when I found out I rooted it right away. Then I got a g2x

I think I may have watch qbking77 videos like a good 20 times before I took the plunged and rooted. Every phone I get I root before I activate. Same goes when I get my note 2 hopefully in like 2 weeks well I'm still thinking it. Who decides to go android may as well learn about rooting.

No one had to root the Tmobile G1 or the Mytouch 3G? Dang, that was my first devices. Having to use gold cards and then using sd cards that had the ext partitions to make the first version of the Hero Sense work on the G1.
