Thanks qbking, your vids are always great and very clear. They helped me set up adb and the SDK a while back. :thumbup:

Thanks for this. Was hoping for a non-root tethering option that actually worked. I've rooted my past 3 phones, but trying to live without it... as long as I can handle it

Actually, I don't see any need to root and rom with Sense 5, I personally like it and it's stable for me. I'm only missing some seldomly used root apps. Tethering is the only reason I have right now to actually break and root. Just trying to not do that this time around.

Bloatware is always nice to remove.

Much appreciated! I was able to root and install recovery with these instructions. Have you any more tips or videos on the horizon for us new One owners?

I like how the One beat the S4 on the fresh unboxing benchmark test you conducted on the S4 video.

have you played around with any of the kernels or roms? im getting my sprint one this week and i was just wondering if there were any you recommend. as far as roms go ive been looking at viperRom or Tranquility. i figured i should start with sense-based and see how like it. for kernels im thinking of going with wolfpack. elementalx looks good but it says its not compatible with the sprint version. any thoughts?
