Kinda annoying. Ya think? Must have had an iPhone for a bit and can't quit!

Usually just people who don't know too much about rooting and such and think jailbreak and root are the same.

Also gotta consider that most people's only exposure to smart phone terminology is from Icrap

Re: People that call root jailbreak...
Do we really need a thread on this in the Verizon Note 2 Section?

I personally think that root being called root is annoying.

You don't add root to a phone, nor do you root a phone. You unlock access to the root user.

Since Adam is the name behind unlocking the bootloader, he started calling it jailbreak due to the fact that there are now legal issues with "unlocking." Yes we all know the legal issue with unlocking is about unlocking to use on a different carrier. To make it easier for people to understand that he is not involved in unlocking carriers, we now jailbreak.

Adam was calling it that well before it became illegal to unlock to another carrier.
