Took me a couple months to build up the courage to do it, but it started with an HTC Hero... And then every phone I could get my hands on after it. Everyone's phone. Nothing is safe around me. Turn your back and you'll be wondering what that SU app is.

First rooted phone was an evo shift on 2.3.3, and then later the same phone (but a replacement) on 2.3.4

Didn't take me too long to decide to root, I rooted about a week after I learned what root was

I rooted my OG Epic from the command line using adb commands - I downloaded all of the files and read every guide I could find a couple days in advance, but I hadn't found XDA or the one-click packages yet (it was the Epic's release week, so the scripts might not have existed yet).

HTC Hero (Sprint)... However, out of all the Android phones I've owned, the GS3 is the first phone I haven't rooted. Haven't felt the need to root this one.
