I have looked at the FAQ and read through several hundred posts. I had a few simple questions that were not answered in the FAQ and any of the posts I have encountered, which is why I asked them:
- should I unlock the SIM before trying to root and load a new OS?
- Will the CM11 be more responsive?
- for my limited need described in http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=67109735&postcount=7022,
do I need to go to all this trouble or is there an easier way to unbloat it without major mods.
It is always better to unlock SIM if you can.
Flashing CM wont unlock it.
Root it and remove bloat.
If you are unsatisfied flash CM11.
If you wish to do unbloat the easy way search for deodexed stock ics on xda for 7560m there is one or two laying around.
