Do you root/jailbreak?

  1. How many people here root or jailbreak their phones? I rooted my last phone before I returned it and I rooted an old Nook. My wife’s iPhone is factory unlocked but I’m not sure if that is the same as a jailbreak. I’m thinking about rooting my Nexus now because I want to run tethering software.
  2. My N1 is rooted, think I simply flashed a new image onto it.
  3. Currently all stock on my Note II since there's no factory image for me to revert to if needed.

    I rooted all of my older android devices though. Didn't jailbreak my second gen ipod touch when I had it.
  4. Jailbreaking seems like much more of a hassle than rooting. If I remember right you have to re-jailbreak after updates.
  5. The only device I've jailbroken was my 1st gen Apple TV, as I wanted to try out the Boxee beta (or alpha...or whatever it was...didn't work too well).
  6. I rooted my Galaxy S1 and my wife's Galaxy S3. I never bothered jailbreaking my iPhone 3G or 3GS. I may jailbreak my iPhone 5 so that I can use my unlimited 4G LTE data plan for tethering without paying extra.
  7. My mate jailbroke my I3GS but after the first week I have not used the features really.
  8. I'm not sure if the phrase 'Do you root?' has any other meaning from where you guys are, but from where I am, it most certainly does. I thought Phisix was just taking the piss initially.
  9. rooting one's android must seem quite the deviation then.
  10. does anyone else here jailbait?
  11. I whale cakes
  12. oh, while i'm in this thread, might as well update.

    i went ahead and flashed a custom rooted rom on my note to get multiwindow multitasking support on my note 2. the process took less than 5 min. odin clockworkmod recovery and boot into it and flash the rom. the long process what the 30+ minutes it took to make a nandroid backup. :(
  13. I rooted a jailbait once
