I guess it could be that it hasn't been updated since the summer.
I just switched from AT&T to T-Mobile, so AT&T "unlocked" my phone if that makes any difference. Regardless, I would like to root my phone so I can remove the AT&T bloatware. Can I root an Android 5.0 phone? I see no guides for 5.0 devices.
Also, considering flashing a custom ROM, but wanted to ask if doing so is going to erase all my personal info? I've got apps on this device that have info I need to keep... Is there any way to flash a custom ROM and keep my data?
I was trying to play Pokemon Go but I found out it only supports Android 4.4+ and by some cruel twist of fate I'm on4.3. I'm trying to figure out how to get to 4.4(or any other supported version) while still maintaining root(I need it because I'm on MetroPCS rather than AT&T and I have to use a root required app to use their service). I tried un-rooting and using the OTA update but that was a complete failure. Restored root with safestrap and I've been stuck in a rut since. I tried the guide in the first post, but the thread it links too is missing a file so that's basically a no go.
