Also you can change them around to what you like, it doesn't matter.
& glad we could help!
Some additional questions as I get ready to root. I found this thread here:
That seems to indicate that just rooting with SuperSU after S-Off isn't enough to really unlock the system.
It mentions the following:
- System write protection removed
- Unsecured boot.img
Are the above two hacks still required to fully unlock?
Some posts seem to indicate that if I use something like ES Root Explorer I will have no problems modifying /system even without this.
I'm unsure on what the unsecure boot.img would do as well.
I found the following thread:
Which seems to indicate some of these changes maybe required...but it was closed months ago and I'm not sure if things have changed since then.
I assume that most custom ROMs have this stuff baked in, but I will likely stay on the Stock ROM for a few months, so do I need it?
