Second I had been so happy with it I had absolutely no plans on rooting or roms etc. its that good stock.

Coming from my SG2 I did miss my free tethering so I decided I would go ahead and root and leave it at that.........well that didnt stay because I just like to tinker too much

I have installed Jedi XX and all I can saw is WOW! just when you think it cant get any faster its blazing and even my data speeds have improved!
+1. JediX-X is the bomb! Rooted my N2 the day after I got it.

Definitely! Really great rom. JediX if you want multi window or Jedi Master if you need wifi calling.

I havent seen a tread like this, and I thought it would be pretty cool to see what everyone else has done ^.^

I rooted mine the first minute I had it home. For several reason...

1. I like to use my device as a "Linux learning tool"
2. I think it is morally wrong to sell a computer to somebody and tell them what they can't do with it
3. customization

flashed a ROM? that didn't happen until after about a month or so when the UVL4 update dropped or whatever for t-mo. continued to play around with it.


i don't think anybody should have an android device and NOT be rooted. just doesn't make sense not to. saved backups, tipping off the "performance cup" of your device. getting updates as you choose, not as they are force upon you. removing spyware from your device.

there is no reason to NOT root.

Hey cobraboy. Remember you from the Evo3D forums. I see you moves to the N2 on T - Mobile a I did. Beast of a phone! Have you put together any mods for it yet?

All stock. For now. I do want to root to remove bloat. What spyware is that you were speaking of cobraboy?
